5.0 out of 5 stars Twenty of hours of Danish brilliance 5 Dec 2012
By Mikey TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Borgen is the successful DR political drama starring Sidse Babett Knudsen.
This set contains the first two series of Danish series Borgen as seen on BBC4 in the UK. This set is the official Danish version and is subtitled in English, however, it may be better to wait for the second series to be screened on BBC4 and then obtain the UK release as that will have subtitles as screened on BBC4 and not the English as translated in Copenhagen. Series 3 will be screened in Denmark in early 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 17 April 2013

Get past the rather slow first couple of episodes and then you are hooked. Excellent series, brilliantly acted by all players. Best thing I have seen in ages - I may even try and learn Danish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best box set ever 30 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Borgen is intellectually stimulating and visually brilliant. Great stories and even better characters. Simply the best political TV I've ever seen and can't wait for series three

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the subtitling 13 Mar 2013
By Roncar
Format:DVD
Having watched and very much enjoyed Series 2 on TV, we bought this product so that we could see Series 1 also. We debated whether to buy Series 1 only, but as we'd so enjoyed Series 2 the first time around we decided to go with both. This, in retrospect, was a big mistake.
We've given the product three stars overall, but this is the average of five stars for Series 1 plus one star for Series 2. The second series scores so little not because of the quality of the acting, the writing or the production values; on the contrary these are just as good as in the first series. What is wrong is that the second line of the subtitles (or the only line when a speech is short) is almost always totally illegible as it appears mostly below the bottom edge of the screen. Occasionally it can be read, but not very often. Of course, meaning can usually be understood by reference to context, but that's not the point. It's a shoddy piece of work, and looks as though English subtitles have been hastily and badly superimposed over the Danish version rather than properly incorporated. As such, it is not worth the money even though Series 1 was perfectly OK. Amazon should really be ashamed of selling product like this; it makes you wonder whether there's any quality control.
We've tried to find a way of expressing our complaint directly to the company, but they seem (deliberately?) to have made this very difficult so we don't really have any alternative to drawing the attention of potential buyers to ineffectual dubbing here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Borgen 17 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Best Danish series to date. Brilliant acting and casting. No doubt Hollywood will soon steal this idea and mess it up (like they did with the Bridge).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wholeheartedly recommended! 11 Nov 2013
By SMJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ordered this on recommendation by a family member. Definitely not disappointed. Had me hooked from 1st episode. The problem is that I can't stop watching and over the past 2 weekends have watched series 1 and am now onto series 2. Will definitely be watching series 3 when it arrives on our screens in the New Year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dull like dishwater
I so wanted to like this series. I found it boring and the falling apart of the relationship of the main characters unbelievable. Can't be bothered to watch season 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dont watch it alongside The Bridge
We made the mistake of watching both at the same time. The Bridge is immediately the more gripping Borgen is a slow build up. Read more
