What I Watched: Borgen & The Killing

Yes, I know, MORE OF THIS. I watched the Tony Awards - great job, NPH! - so I didn't even watch any of the Sunday shows.

Catching Up: Borgen - I'm almost done with the first season, so everything's getting complicated. I love the way Birgitte and her family are portrayed as real people with real problems, not overly perfect, but honestly trying to make things work because they love each other. And these episodes were so illuminating about Kasper's past - his big secret, that his father abused him, surprised me but makes perfect sense given everything else we've seen of Kasper, which really makes for the best kind of plot twist.

The Killing, "Numb (EP203)" - Honestly, at this point I'm into the parts about the cops and the politicians, but less into the scenes set with the Larsens. But I loved seeing Linden show up for Holder at the end, and I really hope they clear the air and start working together again soon.

On the list... Veep, Girls, Longmire, The Killing, Borgen, The Glades

  1. So glad that you're enjoying Borgen, Birgitte Nyborg is one of my favourite female characters of TV in recent years (or ever perhaps) and I love the portrayal of family vs career in this show. Look forward to hearing more of your thoughts though will have to close my ears when you get to S2 as it's not airing in the UK until the winter (which if you look out my window and saw the weather you would think is now).
