One of the great things about Borgen is that although seeing it in sequence gives you insight into character development you can still enjoy any episode in isolation as the stories are relatively...

She studied acting in Paris for three years, and in New York for two years after that.

The Danes could do worse than elect her as their real PM in this modern age where image, poise and soundbites...

Actually, the title for ep 1 was great as well. As soon as the bereaved father read out the sentence from his son's letter about the 89,000 children's lives saved each year I thought "That's the...

I feel the same. TK introduced us to excellent Danish TV drama, but Borgen takes it up several levels for me. I find myself feeling so much more for the characters. In particular, Sidse Babett...

Now that's great news. Although I have loved all three series of The Killing there was something about Borgen that really appealed to me, and I enjoyed it more.

I HATE the ending.

Why do we have to have something so downbeat to end the final series? I've no doubt some people will point out that corruption, cover-ups and crimes of passion are an everyday...

I've seen and enjoyed all four nominated programmes. They are very different so it's likely that opinion will be very divided.

The one I looked forward to most each week was Borgen, so that would be...

Absolutely right. I was in tears watching Theis and Pernille as they found Nanna's body. I wasn't so moved the first time around, and it's obviously because I know the characters so well now.

It's really annoying how expensive this is. I was in the Netherlands a couple of weeks ago and saw it on sale in a shop there for 20. No English subtitles though.

That was excellent. Really looking forward to the remaining two episodes and delighted we don't have to wait long.

What an outstanding cast. Not a single weak performer there at all.

You're right of course. Somehow I managed to morph 10 weeks into 10 episodes in my mind. :o

Even more episodes to enjoy though :)

Cheers Scotch. Much appreciated. Sounds like I almost caught it all then. Nice cliff-hanger, though with eight eps to go it's obvious there won't be anything resolved just yet.

I really enjoyed...

It was disappointing to see Lord Sugar completely ignore the actual performance of the three candidates and make his decision on a bizarre whim.

I also thought the scene with Sunita was sad. Hope she survives. She's not the most exciting character but it's nice to have someone around who isn't nasty.

Dragon's Den - What happened to Duncan?

BBC2 Northern Ireland had scheduled this programme for last Saturday night but canceled it when their rugby coverage overran.

Does anyone know whether they have rescheduled it?
