    Anyone watch Lilyhammer? Steven Van Zandt (from E Street Band and Sopranos) was on Howard about a year ago promoting this new show of his. It's fun and funny. He basically reprises his role as Silvio except as a mob guy in Norway. He went over there after flipping on the head mobster in NY and they sent him as part of the witness protection program. He goes over there trying to keep a low profile but before long he's back to his old ways. Little Steven's acting = not so great. But the Norwegian actors crack me up. Anyway, 2 seasons are on netflix - worth a shot. :D

    It's one of those shows that can just keep you occupied and amused - looking forward to the next season.

    Good show , I didn't have high hopes for it but I got a lot of laughs out of it. That Torgeir dude was funny as hell.

    Bailed halfway thru season 2, once I figured Lil Steven was a pretentious twat.

    I liked the few episodes I watched from the first season, didn't ensnare me though.

    i hate the lead but it's a great show.

    it reminds me a bit of dr. fleischman in 'northern exposure'. a real fish out of water story.

    Reminds me of those Sopranos episodes where Tony was in coma and saw a whole different life (as Kevin Finnerty, the legit salesman stuck in So Cal). This is like Silvio's coma dream. Except Silvio musta had severe head trauma cause this show fucking blows. Cartoonish and lazy. Like a last season Carol Burnett sketch.
