Reviews

Can you attain power and still be yourself?

Over two years have passed and Birgitte Nyborg is no longer the Prime Minister of Denmark. Disillusioned with the way her old party is heading she decides to try to make a comeback by publicly challenging the incumbent Party Chairman. Failing narrowly in this attempt, Birgitte assesses her options and concludes that her only way back into politics is to start again and found a new political party. Forging an unlikely alliance with journalist, Katrine Fønsmark, who becomes her new media adviser and spokesman, the third season of BORGEN follows the journey of Nyborg and her new party towards a taking a fresh shot at parliament and fighting her way back to power back to Borgen .

SKIP THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVE NOT YET WATCHED SERIES 2

2 ½ years have passed since Birgitte Nyborg (Sidse Babett Knudsen) called an election in episode 20 of series 2. And we meet a very different woman - she has left politics and is now a well-paid keynote speaker as well as a board member of a number of businesses.

Katrine Fønsmark (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen) is still a reporter and currently TV1's most popular presenter. She and Kasper Juul (Pilou Asbæk) have a little boy, Gustav. Kasper owns a communications agency and co-presents "Juul and Friis" on TV1 where he and TV1's political editor Torben Friis (Søren Malling) analyse and comment on the political situation in Denmark.

Although Birgitte has a good life, she can't help but miss politics and she still feels that she has something to give in that respect, so soon she starts working on getting back in - her way - and with some surprising helpers along the way.

This 3rd series is definitely my favourite and I thought it would be difficult to beat the second one! But there are so many sides to the story and so many interesting characters that the 10 episodes fly by and I was left with a sense of loss after the last episode - but also satisfied as I felt that once again the acting, storytelling, facts and fiction all blended in together beautifully and I guess sometimes you have to stop on a high, which I felt they did. I watched this online on DR's website, so I cannot comment on the DVD extras, but the series alone is well worth buying!

I have watched the two previous series and for me they were outstanding even better than the English 'House of Cards' trilogy, which was excellent ( I have not watched the American Version). It was therefore with much anticipation that i looked forward to the final chapter of this very well produced Danish TV Series.

Yes, i liked it but have that nagging feeling i will not remember 'Borgen' as a series in the long term as Season 3 i felt was made
to capitalize on the first two seasons and in this i think they failed. I found the first half of Season 3 to lack bite, i missed Kasper Juul and Bent as main players and while i thought that Birgitte's English boyfriend was a good introduction, some of the characters in the newly formed 'New Democrats' lacked credibility and were weak performances. The series did come to life in the second half and become as good as the first two series but the ending could have been handled more expertly and not so predictably.

The series as a whole was totally entertaining and superbly produced but making Season 3 has made it only a 4 star series, it
should have ended after Season 2 but don't let me put you off seeing Season 3, it has it's moments.

It seems to me to be a Danish version of the unforgettable American series "The West Wing."
Nothing will compare to the American program or the saintly President Jed Bartlett. However, Sidse Babett Knudsen plays a not-very-flawed Danish Prime Minister who rises from lowly beginnings. This series brings a European (EEC) flavour to the screen and continues our current love affair with Scandinavian TV programs. The necessary sub-titles do not detract from the viewing experience.
The incidents are taken from real-life situations. Danish politics seems to be a lot more civilized than the American, British or Australian variety. If this is true I think Denmark would be a comfortable place to live despite the fact that it is a minor European nation. I believe some people found Series 3 to be below par. I thought them all eminently watchable. I agree that three series were sufficient. If you like behind-the-scenes political shenanigans with sensible situations but without the cut-throat attitudes then this series is for you.

This is the third and final set of episodes featuring the Prime Minister that we wish we had ourselves, Birgitte Nyborg, played by the wonderful Sidse Babett Knudsen. When we last saw Birgitte, she called an election. Where we find her now is two and a half years later and there have been numerous changes at Christiansborg Palace, particularly with a new leader for the Moderate Party.
Most of the familiar faces from series 1 and 2 are back along with some new faces. Popular Michael Birkkjær returns as Philip Christensen along with Pilou Asbæk as political analyst Kasper Juul in a lesser role than previously. Søren Malling is back as Torben Friis at TV1 but with a new boss. Fans of The Killing will be delighted to see Marie Askehave and Lars Mikkelsen (Rie and Troels from series 1) pop up during the series, and even on screen together!
But the start of the show has moved on from the election and is setting on a new project with the help of Katrine Fønsgard (Birgitte Hjort Sørensen). We also meet a new cast member - a UK actor who shares his scenes with Sidse. Don't expect much Danish to be heard in their scenes together.
The series was screened in Denmark on DR1 (equivalent of BBC1) from New Year's Day 2013 and then most Sundays at 8pm beating all other programmes in ratings on most weeks. Only when Denmark had an important handball game on the other side happening simultaneously to Borgen's screening did Borgen lose ground. This then caused DR to delay the screening of the next episode by a week as handball was now in Borgen's slot on DR1.
For anyone who enjoys something other than the usual UK/US material, Borgen is a joy to watch. As Sidse herself said in a recent interview, shows from Denmark can be considered as "exotic" as they are a change from the norm.
