“Occupied”

Occupy is a word that conjures up images of tents and protests as in “Occupy Wall Street” that popped on the screen a few years ago. So the viewer brings some baggage to this show.  Is occupy and positive or negative word or a little of each?   This is an amazing series that is  on Net Flicks with the first season availability.   It is set in Norway where seemingly overnight their country is “Occupied” by Russia at the request of  the European Union!    Confusing ?  There are layers and layers of this political thriller with environmental issues,  oil , politics and governmental shenanigans! Everyone has a dog in the fight.   There are subtitles and totally unknown Norwegian actors who are great and it was shot in a country many of us know little about. Compelling plot , writing and acting. You will be lost in the story and consumed by the reality of it all! I think you will join us waiting for season two!

I thought I should look to see if I had posted about this show before and I had!  So in case you missed this before, you get double dose of Occupied !
