Lilyhammer (netflix)

Postby freezeblade » Thu Jun 26, 2014 8:20 pm UTC

I just started watching this series on netflix (now that GoT and Madmen is over for this year).
imdb summary wrote:Frank Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt), is a former New York mobster, who after testifying in a trial in the United States, joins the witness protection program. Intrigued by the place after watching the Winter Olympics in 1994, he is relocated to Lillehammer in Norway. The transition from being a feared and respected gangster in New York, to becoming an unemployed immigrant in Norway, is not simple. Frank soon discovers that in order to succeed in this rural Norwegian society, he must resort to his old ways.

I'm on episode 5, and so far I find it quite charming, a bit dark, and with some decent acting.

I love how it does not fall into that "Everyone speaks english" trope which is so common in TV shows/movies.

Anyone else around here seen the show?
