Yes I know that it’s a US remake of a Danish series, but since my Danish extends to “To øl venligst”, this is the best I’ll get. I’m sure that it’s available in dubbed or subtitles but firstly dubbing is ridiculous! Too busy giggling at the comedy accents to watch the programme. Subtitles, unless the programme is action (Subway, La femme Nikita, Run Lola Run, Infernal Affairs) or ‘slow’ (Manon des Sources, Il Postino, etc), the vision is lost as you spend half your time scanning the words. So yes a remake isn’t perfect but it may be the best solution.
The acting, locations and best of all the realistic pace has given us probably the year’s best drama. I’ve got my eyes on the best friend but who knows. Riveting television is back.
