So my favorite show of the last couple years is, far and away, the Danish show Borgen. Apparently season 2 is about to air in the UK; it was "broadcast" on LinkTV a couple months ago. They make the shows available periodically online with English subtitles.
Anyone watch this? I haven't managed to convince any IRL friends to check it out online, I have the first season on DVD but only in Danish with Dutch subtitles, and so I have nobody to discuss the show with!!!
Also, apparently there's going to be an American adaptation of the show for NBC. http://www.deadline.com/2011/09/nbc-to- ... on-katims/
Will it be about Congress? It seems like a LOT of stuff will have to be changed, but I can see a similar show made about, say, the Speaker of the House. Maybe. I'm not sold on the idea, though.
