Trivia

The Daily Telegraph's cultural reviewer Gerard O'Donovan wrote of Occupied that the series' innovation more than made up for any lack of plausibility, citing the interesting historical, geopolitical interplay between Norway and Russia as fascinating. O'Donovan went on to praise the first episode, saying, "the tense plotting and a pace sufficiently frenetic to carry all but the most curmudgeonly along." See more »

Brilliant yet chilling plot
6 February 2016 | by kpottageSee all my reviews

I could not stop watching Occupied once I started - in fact, I binge watched it because I was so enthralled. It is a quality series - great writing, fantastic main character, and a plot that evokes a range of unsettling emotions. The premise is plausible as democracy is often at risk or takes second place to wealth and power. While Russia plays the typical role of evil super power, this show also exposes the self serving agenda of the U.S. whose politicians choose to strategically turn a blind eye to the occupation of Norway. I highly recommend Occupied to anyone who wants to be enthralled by a thought provoking political thriller. Hoping for a season two!
