Editorial Reviews

IN DANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES Borgen is a modern Danish political drama about the personal costs of the struggle for power for the people at the center of the political world and the media. In this third and final season of Borgen, Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) is a very different person than the confident prime minister who spoke at the lectern in parliament. She is no longer prime minister. It has been two and a half years since she called an election in which she failed to win the required number of seats to maintain the existing government. She has since left politics and is now a highly-paid speaker in the business world. During a talk she is holding for yet another group of Danish businesspeople, it all suddenly becomes too much for her. She can no longer brush off the recurring question of what she would do if she were Prime Minister.

I watched Seasons 2 and 3 on PBS, left a rave review of Season 2. Some of what I said about Season 2 applies to Season 3 as well, e.g., BORGEN having the perfect balance of the interpersonal and the political, public and private. I can't think of another show that more deftly illustrates the impact of political discourse on people's lives, and vice-versa, and it does so every week in a way that consistently delivers a POWERFUL punch both intellectually and emotionally. The camerawork is phenomenal, so intimate, pulls you right in.

I love the subtitles, obviously done by non-Native English speakers, e.g., "Hey- those are just the perps that come with the job..." [percs], "you need the pressure of the right people" [support], "so" substituted for "but", compassionate for sympathetic, etc., just slightly off, charming. As with British shows (such as the Irish crime-drama Single-Handed- Season 1 Natural Justice, another favorite, available with Prime), Danish TV doesn't censor obscenities, interesting to hear four letter expletives in Danish. It's often obvious what's being said from the inflection, even through they're blanked out in the subtitles for American TV.

Another aspect I find intriguing is the depiction of government on a much smaller scale. One soldier killed in Afghanistan produces a national outcry. In one episode the prime minister's kids were upset with her for not cooking dinner. Birgitte washes her own dishes, tries to unstop the kitchen sink, and cleans the house, but also flies to Africa to broker peace talks.

Borgen is so wonderful and Sidse Babette Knudsen is beyond praise.

If this actress had been born in London or New York, she would be as famous as Helen Mirren or Meryl Streep.

We have to ration ourselves to keep from watching all of it in one long blast of pleasure. I can't imagine an intelligent, thoughtful person who wouldn't like Borgen. NB: our young Lab is also fascinated by it.

BORGEN is back! The third and final season of this brilliant Danish political series is one of the most anticipated DVD releases of 2014 for fans of top quality drama.

Season Three is set two and a half years after the end of Series Two. Birgitte Nyborg is no longer prime minister and a number of relationships from the previous two seasons have changed dramatically. Most significantly, star journalist Katrine (Birgitte Hjort Sorensen) is still working at the TV station and has had a child with Kasper Juul (Pilou Asbaek), with whom she got together at the end of Season Two, although they are soon separated. Her balancing of motherhood with career is one of the main story lines in Season Three. This develops even further when she quits her job to work with Birgitte as Birgitte re-enters the world of politics.

Another switch is less focus on Kasper Juul (who is now a secondary character) and more emphasis on Torben Friiss (Soren Malling), the head of the top TV station known for its exemplary coverage of politics. Torben’s story arc is fascinating to watch as he is forced to deal with a young, trendy new boss who is more interested in ratings than news. Kasper is seen initially clean-shaven and with longer, tousled brown hair, a stark contrast from his buzz cut and stubble beard which helped give him his haunted-by-personal-demons look in the previous two series

With Birgitte out of office, the logical question remains: When/if will she get back in? Her return to politics is at the heart of episode one and is what hooks the viewer back into the series.

The next two episodes focus on Birgitte’s failure to be welcomed back to her former party. The solution? Create a new party. This is where Season Three really takes off.

This is an absolutely amazing TV series. My wife and I just finished the 30th episode from season 1 through season 3. We rented season 1 on Netflix but bought season 2 and 3 on Amazon. I highly recommend the series. I found out about it through Daniel Burstein author of a series of books about the fiction of Dan Brown. I am so thankful that he recommended to us. The 30 hours of all 3 seasons flew by way too quick. We now feel like we have lost a group of friends, the characters in the series that each are so compelling in their own right.

Season 3 of Borgen was good but not as strong as the first 2. Without spoiling anything for people who've never seen the show, the ending of season 2 creates a big change for the major characters of the show. Season 3 picks up a few years after that and while it was interesting to see how the show turned out, I can't say I agree with the outcome. Borgen is a fantastic show throughout, I just wish the magic of the first two seasons was carried over to season 3. I give a huge amount of respect to the creators of the show for realizing the show had hit it's peak and not carry it on and on like they do here in the states.
