BORGEN (2010 – 2013)


Creator: Adam Price

Borgen Danish for “The Castle,” the nickname for the building that houses Denmark’s government Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) by her surprise becomes the first woman prime minister of Denmark. Nyborg fins out that the job is not what it cracks up to be. On th top of that she is trying to find a balance between the deals she strike and get it done is a different story.

Here is a great series From Denmark. The series revolves around new Prime Minister Nyborg and how she deals with her responsibilities as well in her private life. She quickly understand in politics it is a man’s world. It shows her in her private life with her husband and kids and at work. The other characters are shown the same way as well as the jungle the political agendas. This series is perfect. There is conflict between characters as well like in real life. Like I said the feel like real people and the creator and his team of writer has paid attention to that. Here is a bit go fact when Borgen came out in 2010, Thorning-Schmidt was already the leader of her party, but the country had yet to vote her into power…  so Borgen creator Adam Price decided to make that jump for her. He created Birgitte Nyborg, made her Prime Minister on TV screens across the land, and thus paved the way for real life. That din’t not influence the vote says the voters out there. Over all you must see this one. I got hooked the first episode.
