Borgen is a REALLY interesting fictional look at another western democracy's govt. - that will look more than a little familiar to Americans, except the moderates there are the "liberal extremists" here. LOL.
KCET is streaming two weeks of episodes at a time.
The link, above, is to the 4th episode - which is SO GOOD and SO PERTINENT to the current discussion of NSA and other such intials' power.
The series won awards in Europe - the show is two years old, at this point.
Anyway, worth checking out if you're not averse to subtitles - and if you are - oh please.
