Greg and Amy Poehler in Welcome To Sweden

Launching tonight on Sweden's TV4 is the channel's first original English-language show. Weirdly, it's made by and stars Greg Poehler and Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), and is a semi-autobiographical story about a New York accountant who moves to Sweden to be with his girlfriend. Amy Poehler is his client.

I've no idea if this is essentially Sweden's response to Norway's Lillyhammer, but it's happening, all the same. Here's a trailer. Or two.


Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
