There has been an influx of absolutely brilliant TV from Norway, Sweden and Denmark recently: The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge and Mammon to name a few.
Each lined with their own unique style of drama and wit that transgress even the boundary of language, the future can only hold great things as the UK (and rest of the world) gradually gain more access to TV of this calibre. If you’re up for shows with a little more edge and uniqueness - Scandinavia is the hub of awesome TV.
Mammon is currently airing it’s first season in the UK on More 4. You can access the first episode here:
Having just completed the third episode ‘A Crooked Mile’ for a second time, I can safely say that The Wolf Among Us is one of the most immersive games of its kind. Telltale Games have simultaneously raised the bar of the genre with this adaptation of Bill Willingham’s Fables comics alongside their acclaimed second season of The Walking Dead.
'A Crooked Mile' cultivates the rather sombrely-kept momentum from the initial episodes and forces the narrative into a fully-fledged crime thriller. The character development is at it's very best in this episode and I can't wait to see how the fourth plays out.. hopefully with a little more length.
I nearly broke my spleen laughing at this film. Johnny Knoxville certainly did it again. Between his portrayal of Irving and Jackson Nicoll’s witty performance of Billy, the entire audience was crying with laughter in the cinema last night.
I won’t give anything away, but if you’re a fan of Jackass, or are simply looking for something to brighten your day, go and see this film.

Adult bookstore clerk: Do I look like a stripper?
Billy: I’ll just call you Cinnamon.”
