Borgen: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
The show is beautifully plotted. The many intrigues in the worlds of politics, journalism, business, and PR are given just enough twists and turns to be surprising, but never so many that they become tiresome.
This is a lot of narrative to tackle in one hour, but the writing and performances on "Borgen" are so finely honed that it all snaps together effortlessly, and crackles as the story races along.
You could do worse than to put on your coziest socks and vicariously enjoy a political sphere that seems almost magically more refined than ours.
The good parts are the very credible relationship that Birgitte has with her family and her evolution as a more sophisticated politician once she has to do battle with the other parties to form a new government.
Borgen should appeal to everyone to be honest. It's a fantastically compelling and intricate drama about politics, gender, change and (mainly) power.
