All charm and smarts, the best new NBC comedy in a long time. A winner.

If Welcome to Sweden doesn't work, its failure won't be epic. But during what used to be the throwaway summer season, this is a shining example of a comedy series that has a lot going for it in a smaller way.

"Welcome to Sweden" is the antithesis to "Parks and Recreation."

Looks like Amy Poehler isn't the only one in the family with a sharpened funny bone. Brother Greg Poehler is quite charming in Welcome to Sweden.

Welcome to Sweden is engaging for its exotic Scandinavian setting and warm visual style. It's a winning mix of low-key charm and robust humor.
