Do posters reckon it would be fairly easy to pick this up if you havent watched series one?
Yeah I think so. Each ep is more or less self-contained i.e. 'political adventure of the week' so it's mainly Birgitte's home life and the Kasper/Katrine stuff that's a constant from week to week.

Don't see why not.

Short Season 1 recap here. Don't scroll down too far if you want to avoid reading about Season 2 - which has aired already in Denmark.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borgen_...ries)#Season_1

If you really take to the programme then you can hunt down Season 1 if you want. Season 3 is airing in Denmark now.
Thanks for posting the re-cap link, Barnsley. I am refreshed and ready for the off now!

Cone of Shame indeed! (You'll have to type in a funny voice now).
Birgitte Hjort Sorensen has got the thumbs up in this household.

How similar to the West Wing is this?

From what I have read it seems it has a lot less 'soap opera' feel about it if you know what I mean

iPlayer details for Borgen S2 have appeared on the BBC4 website.

Borgen - Series 2 iPlayer availability
Due to rights reasons there will be no option to download any episodes from series 2 of Borgen, nor will it be available on Series Catch-up.

The series will be available to stream in standard definition and in HD for seven days following each individual episode’s broadcast.

Similar to what happened with TK3 I think.
I fell foul of this with TK3. TK 1 and 2 had been on series catch up and I assumed TK3 would be the same. Not so! I missed eps 5 & 6 because I took too long to watch them on iplayer. I was sooooooooooooo annoyed. I watched the rest of the episodes and kind of caught up with the plot, but there's so much packed into each episode of The Killing that it was unsatisfactory. Then my son bought me the TK3 box set for Christmas, so I can watch the episodes I missed but it's not the same because I know what comes after. That's why I disappeared from the TK3 thread btw - I was completely out of synch and couldn't discuss it properly.

The second programme in this article might be of interest to us Euro-Crime freaks

Hard to say really and it's not really fair to compare them. US and Danish politics are totally different and Borgen features more of the media world than TWW ever did, but if you liked one then I'm sure you'll like the other.

At least my Saturday night TV is sorted for the next few weeks.

Danish design in everything (from what I've seen) is wonderful..
Isn't the view from her apartment brilliant?
