year after year danish TV makes Christmas series. many of them is quiet bad, but this is old one is a real gem. it is made by a danish band called de nattergale, which specializes in humoristic music. the story and the set are very simple, and very few actors are used (basically just the band), which actually works pretty well. the episodes are kept really short, which makes you focus on the main plot and the humor, and makes you longing for more, after watching an episode. the humor is pretty good, and it talks to both adults and children, despite it is rated as an adult series. the acting isn't that good, but i don't think you can expect too much from people, who aren't actors. so all in all i can recommend it, but only for Danes or other Scandinavians, sadly. many of the jokes can only be understood people talking danish, so as a foreigner you would quickly feeling bored. but if you would like to watch a danish Christmas series (julekalender), this would be the only i can recommend, because most of the others are really strange and really really bad made.
