Audience Reviews for Occupied: Season 1

  • May 02, 2020
    Moved quickly, was grounded/logical but still surprising. Great writing & performances woo!
  • Apr 20, 2020
    Gripping! Binge worthy TV at its best. A frightening portrayal of how Europe could look like in today's political climate.
  • Jan 10, 2020
    Well written and acted
  • Jan 03, 2020
    Absolutely riveting! A compelling geopolitical drama with enough thrills to keep you on the edge of your seat. The storylines bridge the personal and the political with great agility, and the stellar cast is engaging and imminently watchable.
  • Jan 01, 2020
    One of the best shows on Netflix ... a smart political thriller with a fascinating premise ...
  • Dec 08, 2019
    Incredibly well developed storyline which explores a set of political events triggered in a climate where you would think advanced democracies wouldn't go. But as recent global events teach us, anything is possible. It is a must-see for anyone who loves thrilling television, especially with a political backstory. It goes to show you what can happen when oil politics mixes with major moves in climate change. Simply substitute the mythical "Thorium" technology with a new wave of nuclear energy to replace oil, and it is easy to see how this type of situation could actually occur. Mixing such real world intricacies with an imaginative writers' mind is what makes it a masterful piece. Instead of letting me ruin the show, just GO WATCH IT! The show is in Norweigian, but subtitles make it easily understandable for anyone else (English, French, etc.).
  • Aug 09, 2019
    The whole plot is based on theRussians overtaking Norway in a stealthy manner. The government gets more and more complacent until the Norwegians finally rebel. The acting and the character development is phenomenal. I am often at the edge of my seat. The plot twists keep you alert .lam looking forward to next season.
  • Jul 23, 2018
    The first season does a very reasonable job of raising complicated issues of the individual decisions regarding loyalty to nation and self-interest (including that of one's family), and the tendency towards conciliation of those with responsibilities (though the caricature of a disingenuous russian head diplomat is disappointing and the international political dimension is only lightly treated and more or less nonsensical, but this is a fantasy wargame plot so nothing, I suppose, is that implausible)
