Lilyhammer [Netflix]

Postby C » 27 Jan 2024, 18:09

I've just started it

Steven Van Zandt - Brooce's lad

Mr Jung recommended it.

Any other fans/views?

Yes! It's really good, especially the first season (I think there are 3). As it goes with these kind of shows, the plot goes from the sublime to the ridiculous, but even season 3 is quite watchable, mainly thanks to a few really good Norwegian actors. Van Zandt basically does his Sopranos character. He does it quite well and actually develops it a bit as time goes on. Thoroughly entertaining and at times (very) funny. My wife taste is different from mine more often than not, but this one received unanimous approval in our household. The next time that happened was with Ted Lasso, so not that often, considering we watched Lilyhammer 4-5 years ago, or something. It's quite an old show. Pleasantly surprised to read that (apparently) it's still on Netflix.

Yes, really enjoyed it when it first appeared - must be 10 years ago.

Only saw the first series because the next couple of series were bought by some other company and we couldn’t get it. Might catch up with the next couple of series.

I gave up after 3.5 episodes (of series 1)

I really enjoyed it at the start but got somewhat irritated by it

I fully understand and 'got it' but it just lost my interest

I may revisit but doubt it

We made it up to episode four, I think. I like Steve, but his one expression, the bulldog sitting on a thistle, became tiresome. It was ok in the Sopranos, where he had a lesser role, but as the main man, he couldn't cut it

Another friend I recently recommended it to binge watched all 3 seasons within a couple of weeks.

Little Steve isn't the main attraction here. It's 3 of 4 Norwegian actors that make the show.
But maybe it really is for a younger audience, Neil ;-).
