Trivia

In the second episode "May", the song "Norge i rødt hvitt og blått" (Norway in red white and blue) is played by a passing marching band when journalist Thomas Eriksen is in the city centre. This song was written in 1941 as a result of the German occupation of Norway during WW2. It's one of Norway's most famous national songs and refers to Norwegian independence and trust in the citizens protecting the countries values of freedom and democracy. Which is in stark contrast to the events taking place in the series. See more »

Artful Pacing...
23 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

10 episodes of blissful engagement. Somebody skillful achieved what I'd consider an understated style of the TV series '24', without the body count. A pleasant surprise.

Things begin with a middle-aged man walking solo down the center of a snow- covered road, looking bewildered. A quick flashback to who he is and how he got there, then back to the road where the story turns into a snowball itself — entangling more characters and subplots as it rolls along. Every scene counts, and contributes to the quick pacing as the story unfolds.

If you're watching these on Netflix, don't go past episode six unless you have time to finish. Don't bother trying to stop after that, it's not possible — I tried… ;-)

Worth it's weight in subtitles, 'Occupied' is a great show.
