    The Norwegians are the foreigners here, and Norway the foreign land. But that remoteness is part of the show's appeal.

    I wouldn't say Lilyhammer is worth signing up for Netflix to see, but if you're already paying for it and you like Van Zandt--and Norwegian knits--it's certainly worth a look.

And it is set in a completely different location than what is typically ordinary. Character development is excellent with new and interesting faces. Netflix deserves recognition for giving something new a try. Its working!! I can't wait for season 2. Full Review »
