Intriguing. Bleakly sophisticated drama in a tumble-dried tundra.
Have I missed it? I meant to watch this.
You're going to have to set aside two hours, it was a double header start. Well worth it though, it has bite and guile.
Leaving it till tomorrow evening. Any good? Up there with Forbrydelsen?
Yep, if not better.
Is it on Sunday, too?
Good stuff. We've really hit a seam of great Scandinavian drama.
ohhh will watch this tomorrow on IPlayer
me too - i never got into the second series of forbrydelsen. hoping this will be better.
You're allowed to smoke inside Scandinavian hospitals? I want to emigrate.
I know in Denmark they only enforce a smoking ban inside buildings with less than so many square feet.
Blimey, that was a serious two-hour investment!
Fun take on the cop duo genre - very amusing in parts. Really enjoyed the way their embryonic relationship unfolded.
The main storyline is a pretty outlandish premise. I presume Saga is somewhere on the autism spectrum...
35% The Killing
15% Twin Peaks
I hate watching things on iPlayer. I don't think I could manage 2 hours.
Download and burn to DVD?
This is on our list. Looks good.
This type of thing is normally repeated often, but not always, the evening before the next episode - so perhaps look at BBC4 in the listings for Thurs or Friday.
It's repeated at 11pm on Monday night, it seems. I'll try to record it. (Our PVR thingy has been playing up recently).
It doesn't include hospitals.
I don't watch TV s not seen this but i am guessing if they are smoking in a hospital, it's in a designated room and was filmed before the fairly recent smoking ban.
FWIW, it's actually buildings under a certain size you can still smoke in. Such as small bodegas and bars, because they want to preserve the atmosphere of these places.
Some places can have smoking if a certain area that is raised, like a stage. I know a guy that build a stage in his bar just so he didnt have to make it non smoking. Some workplaces have smoking rooms still.
I watch iplayer on my telly - I have it on BT Vision - so I think I might look into this Nordic thing.
i-Player on a little netbook is perfect for me because I have contracted field vision so I can see everything as long as I don't do it full screen.
I wish I could set that up. We have a Wii, but it keeps saying it can't connect to the broadband. I've phoned the broadband people, but they don't know why, and suggest stuff that'll cost money.
That's part 1, part 2 being on Tuesday at 10:50.
I watched parts 1 & 2 on i-Player.
Oh, that's much better. I might manage to watch that, then.
just watching part two and the killer for series 1 of The Killing has just turned up (in hospital, playing someone called Ole).
Just watched the first two episodes, enjoyed it. Love Saga
Me too. I've known people a bit like her. I don't think she's 'overdrawn' apart from the changing her clothes in full view of her colleagues. That would have been frowned upon as inappropriate from childhood and I just don't think it's believable.
The functioning on practically no sleep is very believable.
the twin peaks comparison is very clever - don't know if i'd have got that, but i really see it. anyway, i really loved it. roll on next week.
