‘There’s something of the Scandi shows about The Fall…Celtic noir? Move over Denmark, Belfast is the new Copenhagen? Could be’ (guardian, 2013). Sam Wollaston’s interpretation of BBC Two’s latest crime series The Fall got me thinking about the rise of crime series in the UK, particularly…’ (read more here)

A recent event in Edinburgh at the Filmhouse that we went to:

‘Ingolf Gabold was the head of drama production in the Danish Broadcasting Corporation from 1999 to 2012, and is credited with bringing Danish TV dramatic production up to today’s high standard. His recent achievements include The Killing and Borgen. Ingolf will illustrate his lecture with clips from the Danish and American versions of The Killing and explain his views on TV fiction.’

Prisoners of War Comment from group member (Israeli series)
Has anyone else watched the Israeli series ‘Prisoners of War’? Its the original version of what became the American series ‘Homeland’. I think it appeals in much the same way as many of the Scandi things appeal: its very NOT American! By which i mean its slow, takes its time, there is less glamorous sex/action and more of a focus on character development and general mood/tone setting. I would compare ‘Prisoners of War’ and the Killing to a fine sourdough that takes many hours to make, savour and digest whereas the American versions are like a white loaf made by the Chorleywood method…quick, pappy, and ultimately bad for the digestion.

The fact I actually love ‘The Shield’ is irrelevant here! I love it as a counterpoint to all the quality European stuff I watch! And of course ‘The Wire’ was amazing. But we’re not here to discuss The Wire…
