I'm actually just through the second episode of Spiral as of a few days ago. I've heard a lot of great things about it. Have you see Borgen or Broen/Bron (the bridge)? I've been looking to get into those as well, but haven't had a recommendation from someone.

I've read some incredibly glowing reviews about Broen but haven't been able to watch it yet. Really want to.

I just posted in the House of Cards thread that everyone and their mother should be watching Borgen. It's absolutely fantastic. I haven't gotten a chance to see Broen yet though.

Absolutely. I've heard nothing but good things and its inclusion on nearly every european television list i've read is also a good sign.

Fantastic! So glad to hear it. The trailers for these shows are always less than stellar.

Also, as long as we're talking Danish Noir, go watch Those Who Kill so you can be caught up for when A&E butchers it like AMC did with Forbrydelsen.

I might be completely misremembering this, but did I read somewhere on here once that you lived in Norway for awhile? Maybe not Norway, but one of the Scandinavian countries?

Close-ish. The Netherlands.

Oh, okay, not too far off. Do you feel like living there had a big influence on your movie/tv watching preferences? You seem to know much more than most users about programs and films from the Scandinavian region even if you were in the Netherlands. Kind of a dumb question, but I'm curious.

On this sort of note, it'd be really to see more threads about european television pop up every once in a while. Or maybe a thread similar to the Criterion Thread where people can discuss foreign television programs. Just an idea.

I would be very active in that thread. I've been dying to talk about Forbyrdelsen with anyone on here. What do you think we could call it? Just 'Foreign Television (Official Thread)?'

We should try and get a list of stuff for people to watch to put in the first post, maybe? Is there anything special in the first Criterion post?

I think so. I watched a lot of Channel 4 and Canal+ while I was over there and I think, at this point, most of the good foreign television programs show up on those networks, whether they be Channel 4 and Canal original programming or syndicated stuff.

Maybe a list of countries and the current best shows coming out of each?

A list sounds fantastic. I'll try and see what I can contribute when I get home later.
