Something is rotten in the state of Denmark!!
I this supposed to be a joke?? 1,5 million Danes are glued to the screen every Sunday night in prime time to watch something that seems better suited for the day-time soap slot!!!: "The series about YOU AND ME that deals with the joys and problems of a normal danish life in the year 2003?" Please!! If they wanted to opt for realism maybe the writers shouldn't have INSISTED on making EVERY SCENE A BLATANT SETUP FOR THE NEXT in order to lecture the viewer on life in the most patronizing way!!!! Show a troubled boy with a pet rat in scene 12. Show his estranged stepfather taking him to visit the Copenhagen Aquarium to watch piranhas in scene 15 and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the rat will fall prey to the fish in order to carry on the narrative drama of father and son! If it fits the story purpose of telling us the "sad story of relatives being alcoholics" rational characters suddenly become raging alcoholics out of the blue!?? AND IT IS LIKE THAT ALL THE WAY!!!! Totally unrealistic setups upon setups!!! I mean come on, and this is considered "hip" in Denmark? Am I really the one who isn't blown away by this travesty?? How this has now been nominated for an Emmy is beyond me! Please don't be fooled by this series danish origin. Danish television CAN be great as was the case with last years Emmy winner "Rejseholdet". To even consider nominating "Nikolaj og Julie" is an insult to the former.
