Borgen – Power & Glory

Borgen – Power & Glory

Holy crap, having been massive fans of Borgen since day 1 and finding Birgitte Nyborg’s floundering around in latter seasons a bit less satisfying, we were delighted that this instalment was a blistering return to excellence. In Borgen Power & Glory we not only saw the gritty innards of coalition politics (and the uneasy alliances and compromises that entails), but also the rise of in-party factionalism, alongside macropolitical wranglings and posturing: Nyborg not always in the driver’s seat, but very much a player in the game. AND, add to that corporate/professional strain in the media with Katrine Fonsmark & team, AND Nyborg’s personal life as well… THIS was gripping, quality drama.
