Product Description

After Frank The Fixer Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt, The Sopranos) testifies against his Mafia boss in New York, he enters the Witness Protection Program and makes an unusual demand: He wants to be set up with a new life in the Norwegian small town of Lillehammer or as he calls it, LILYHAMMER.

Thrust into a brand new world, Frank is confronted with a colorful cast of characters totally unlike the New York variety. But as he soon finds out, the past always has a way of catching up with you, especially when it concerns the Delucci family.

"If I didn't watch the Olympics in 94!" Frank "The Fixer" opts for witness protection in Norway. An important distinction is that Lilyhammer is not a program about the Mafia or even crime. What the show is about and what makes it work is the cultural differences. Steven Van Zandt to his credit does not try to create a new mob persona and plays Frankie as he played Sil.

While the cultural differences are the base of the show, it is the subtle and not so subtle comedic moments (including the facial expressions of Steven Van Zandt) that make the show a pleasure to watch. Whether it is the jail cell that looks like a college dorm room (along with a guard that apologizes for locking the door) or the Employment Counselor that is genuinely offended when Frankie (AKA Johnny) attempts to bribe to get a liquor license, so that he can purchase a bar, the ancillary cast of characters keep the show fresh.

I watched all 8-episodes in 2-sittings. While YMMV, the show is uniquely originally.

Season 2 is in the works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally entertaining! January 12, 2014
A senior NY mob guy turns snitch and gets relocated through the witness protection plan to Lillehammer, Norway. Crazy plot idea, I don't know who thought this juxtaposition up, but it works! As a huge fan of The Soprano's, I enjoyed seeing the mob theme again, and Steve Van Zandt does a great job of portraying the Giovanni/Johnny/Frankie character. But even more, having always been intrigued by Norway, I enjoyed the authentic Norwegian physical and cultural setting, and apparently the actors are indeed Norwegian. The series has everything I look for: solid acting, penetrating and diverse depictions of human nature and the human condition, unexpected twists and turns with occasional shock value, a bit of sexual titillation, and lots of laughs. This is one of my favorite series ever, and Season 2 is proving to be just as good as Season 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silvio Dante goes on Vacation December 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Hi, I liked this a lot. Van Zandt reprises his role as Silvio from the Soprannos but in a different incarnation. It's funny and "Johnny" sprinkles his dialog with little "remarks";like when he refers to a local cab driver as Travis Bickle. Cultural armageddon ensues when gangster colides with the polite Norwegians. I'm looking forward to Season 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lilyhammer Hts the Nail on the Head! January 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series is hilarious and has us screaming out loud sometimes even though we have seen it before (this was a gift1). The only problem is that the English subtitles when people speak in Norwegian are very fast! It sharpens you up! Steve van Zandt is the best!!! We are now watching the second season and it is as good as the first!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent change of pace series. January 15, 2014
OK, the first thing you need to know about Lillyhammer is that it was produced for Norwegian Network
TV.....not an American audience (although it translates well). Ignore the silly comments about "no
subtitles"....they are right here on the DVD just like they are right there on Netflix if you have that

The story is very simple, Frankie the Fixer rolls over on his mob boss, is offered his choice of places
to relocate and fixes on Lillehammer (because he saw it on the Olympics and thought it was cool). Once
he arrives, he soon finds out things are done differently in Norway, and the show is basically about how
Frankie (now Giovanni/Johnny) figures out his own solutions to the daily obstacles of life in Norway that
are constantly being tossed in his way. For example, he finds from the local constable that his drivers
license is invalid and left to walk back to town only to be told by the local DMV that it takes 6 months to
get a license in Norway. But as usual, a solution presents itself to the ever vigilant and opportunistic

If you've seen the Sopranos, then you've seen the character being portrayed here by Steve Van Zandt,
probably with a little more charm and a little less "stugatz" than on Sopranos. But thats where any
comparison ends. This show is funny, there is intrigue, romance, adventure, JR Ewing style wheeling
and dealing, and a rare and accessible view into a culture that is in many ways similar to ours, but a
world apart in reality. 4.5 Stars

BTW, Netflix just announced the show has been picked up for Season 3, a testament to the popularity
of this terrific series! (8 episodes per season)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterically Funny! January 8, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this show! The scenery is beautiful. This guys method of getting through life is amazing. Opportunities to blackmail just fall into his lap. If you liked the movie "Fargo", you will love Lilyhammer! I can hardly wait for season two to come out on DVD!
