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 »

Artful Pacing...
23 January 2016 | by (USA) – 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.
