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,( cut for potential spoilery-ness... )
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!
