    I'm baffled by any positive reviews of this show. I got through 2 episodes. I think it's the stupidest thing I've seen in a decade. Did he learn the language on the flight over? Is there really a woman on planet earth attracted to this guy? Is this supposed to be funny? Seriously, are you people watching a different show than I did? This is horrible.

    OK, first the "pro's": Love the premise and the setting. Still like Steve Van Zandt. Love the quirky writing and a chance to get to know Norwegian culture a little (I know--like watching the Sopranos helps me get to know American culture!). Cons: So far--and I went to the trouble to watch the first six episodes--the message of the series is--1)Think only of yourself and what you want..OK, first the "pro's": Love the premise and the setting.

I won't be watching the next season and if you haven't started watching, there are better ways to use your time. Not recommended. Expand

    Lilyhammer is an odd little series with potential.

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