So, my parents are keen viewers of the new Danish-language political drama (currently showing in the UK on BBC4), called Borgen.  I have been half-watching a couple of episodes - and it hasn't really grabbed me yet, as I've missed most of the set-up, so don't really feel invested in any of the characters yet - however, I did enjoy the moment in last night's episode, where the ambitious blonde journalist is woken from sleep by a hammering at her front door,
which turns out to be the Danish equivalent of Special Branch police officers - she opens the door wrapped in her duvet, and when they threaten her, her response is to turn her back on them, drop the duvet, and lift her phone set to video above her head, to film her and the police officers behind her, whilst narrating that she is being harassed by said police officers...!  Cue abrupt bolting of police officers not wanting to be caught on film!
  I was impressed by a) her quick thinking, b) her lack of body consciousness, and c) the programme's refusal to follow cliche!

Another thing I like about this programme - the relationship between the (female) Prime Minister and her (house) husband, which is equal and warm and funny and tender and mutually supportive.  Refreshing stuff!
