Tv Season Info

Season 3 of the Danish drama opens with Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) out of politics, but not public life: she's pulling in big bucks on the speaker circuit. That's not to say she's content, however, and given that she disagrees with the new direction of her old party, the Moderates, she sees no recourse but one: a political comeback. As the season progresses, her return to politics is predictably bumpy; and a new political party, the New Democrats, threatens to upset the old order—if it can get enough signatures to make the ballot, that is. She also faces smears from opponents, copes with a disturbing medical development and is caught off guard when the current prime minister calls for an early election.

Critic Reviews for Borgen Season 3

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11)

From the opening minutes of Season 3, "Borgen," in all its psychological glory, is back.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Though wobblier, looser and more structurally uneven than the previous seasons, when "Borgen" is firing on all cylinders, it's still enriching, rewarding television.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Borgen, the ridiculously compelling tale of Danish coalition politics and journalistic shenanigans, is back, and it has lost none of its edge or rich texture.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

This isn't just a show about a "strong female character." Nyborg is formidable, but she's also very multi-dimensionally human.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Borgen plays like a more astringent version of The West Wing, a show it clearly borrows from and improves on.

Feb 7, 2014 | Full Review…

Watch "Borgen" for its sharp depiction of the personal cost of leadership-and to set a high bar for what makes those sacrifices feel worthwhile.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Feminism! Lefty politics! Deep familial love!

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

"Borgen," like its heroine, refuses to be knocked around by the general hysteria of current conventional tropes. It is smart and compelling and not particularly tweetable.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Borgen has always dwelt on the balance between the benefits of public office and its impact upon private life, and to stop the debate growing stagnant there has to be a tipping point. Birgitte may have found hers.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Smart, honest and deeply moving.
