Meghan Ihle’s Sarah and Vince Perry’s Harry can’t stop contradicting and undermining each other, even as they smile lovingly at each other. The unnervingly grinning couple Susan and Peter (Michelle Ianiro and Dennis Markam) couldn’t be happier about getting a divorce, while Amy (Suzie Shepard, hysterical in both senses of the word) is in such a panic about getting married to the serenely adoring Paul (Paul Plain) that she seems ready to jump out a window. Bobby gets stoned and giggly with the usually straight-laced Jenny (Megan Stetson, with a lovely operatic voice) and her freedom-missing husband, David (Alex Moore), and he gets sloppy drunk with the jaded and mean-spirited Joanne (Jill Gould) and her long-suffering third husband, Larry (Craig Eychner).

The first two seasons of Borgen, the fantastic Danish series starring Sidse Babett Knudsen (or, as I think of her, the most charming actress in the whole wide world) as the country’s first female prime minister, aired in 2010 and 2011. The slightly inferior third season is the only one to have premiered in 2013 proper, but since Borgen has been Samizdat-level difficult to find in America, I started the series only this year, when it aired on KCET, a PBS affiliate in California. I promptly fell madly, swooningly in love with the series and have been aggressively pushing it on every single person that I know since. The show follows Birgitte Nyborg (Knudsen), a lefty politician in an Eric and Tami Taylor-level good marriage as she is altered for better and worse by power. It’s a beguiling character study you will never want to end, even though it comes with subtitles.
