Agreed some pr**k. I noticed Kaspar has morphed. Shame.

I've got into a routine of watching one episode then iPlayer the second so's not to miss MotD (and not being into this TiVo world ). Why on earth the beeb show them as a double header beats me. It shortens the run by half with resulting reduced media attention etc.

This one is actually really humourous; it kind of educates and sends up modern management, polyingticiunts, spoiled & immature gen-X/Ys, modern farming, etc all simultaneously.

Something very The Office, or Twenty Twelve about it.

One could mistake Adam Price for not only sounding English...

I'd agree with that , Nick. Each episode seems to have been written by a different writer with different ideas on how Borgen should come across. Episode 5 I thought was a stodgy, long-drawn out hour with the prostitute/sex worker thing, and I thought Borgen had taken a downward train very fast.However, episode 6 sees Kasper with beard restored which could only mean everything was well in the state of Borgen. The scenes of Birgitte in hospital and in her isolation were very moving.Torben seems to have discovered the meaning of taking a bite of cake and balls to normality. Tragedy looms.

The prostitute one was nicely self-reflexive of how consensus politics and political posturing often ignores the facts for its own selfish gain, though - who in fact are the actual whores?

Anyone hear Katrine on radio 2 this week, quite the accomplished actress, and no trace of a Danish accent when speaking English.

Heard about it. Think she's been in a play on stage over here?
What will the ending be?
Torben's love life will get all too much for him : I fear the the worst or will he rise above it all?
( as a postscript I was with a group of Danish teenage students whose command of English put, for example, their English counterparts to shame when speaking a foreign language )
Katrine also made a guest appearance in Bluestone 42.

" Alex, the next time you want some fun, go to the fair."
I was beginning to think Torben might jump off the barge and end it all.
Disappointed Katrine went back to the louche economist.
So, that's it.

What's next?
