Trivia

The building used as the Government Building is actually the headquarters of Statoil's international operations, Norway's, and one of the world's, largest oil companies. It's placed using CGI in the center of Oslo, next to the opera, but in reality is some 10 km (6 miles) away, at the location of the former main airport of Oslo, Fornebu. The use of the building is an intended pun from the producers, as the government party is green and anti-oil. See more »

20 November 2015 | by (Duisburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

It has been criticized by other reviewers, that the plot is not plausible. In a situation, where the energy supply is decreasing it might well be plausible to force Norway to keep supply up. The reason for Russia to do that must not necessarily be an economical one. The force used to direct Greece is an example for what happens in a situation where a small country is not following the dominating powers' interest. The Prime Minister in "Occupied" faces a situation where he cannot keep his promises for the sake of avoiding disaster. This is again a situation similar to what happened in Greece (avoiding the "Grexit"). The point is that the plot is plausible in the sense that is not contradictory and is based on assumptions that are not arbitrary. The series also shows the dilemmas faced by different persons in different contexts. There is a journalist who wants to report the truth but is told by his wife and the prime minister to be responsible. This is a dilemma everyone of us might face (depending on the circumstances).
