The “Gonna hear about this a lot” BEFOREIGNERS HBO trailer.

I belong to the SCA; of course I’m going to hear about this.

BEFOREIGNERS is this Norwegian series where the modern era starts getting Vikings and Stone Age people and apparently 19th century folks with horse-drawn carts showing up. And one of the Viking women is now a cop? And there’s a murder mystery going on? …Okay, guys. Just run with it and we’ll see if it flies.

    HBO has decided to challenge Netflix. I love free market economics.

      I’m gonna give it a chance; “I’m proud to announce our first employee with a multi-temporal background” seems pretty tongue-in-cheek to me, not sincere.

    I would really like this to be good.
    Doing it well would require flouting Hollywood shibboleths for most of the run-time.
    It won’t be done well.
