Occupied – I just finished the second season of Occupied on Netflix. If you like Scandinavian political thrillers, this show is for you. I found out recently through ancestry.com that the majority of my ancestry is Scandinavian, so I was particularly interested to check out the second season.
The second season sees Jesper’s former assistant/paramour Anyta taking over as PM. I don’t want to give the story away but the political intrigue takes off from there. I especially like how this show depicts various perspectives, from the personal to the political.
The finale set up a third season perfectly. Occupied is on Netflix, 8 episodes about 54 minutes each.
Flint Town – We’re still watching this documentary on Netflix. It was filmed in 2016 in Flint, Michigan. The series follows the Flint Police Department through a budget crisis, as well as the water crisis. It really gives you some perspective on the difficulties faced by the police, the fire department, the government, and the residents. I’m not sure there are any solutions but at least this series is shedding light on the issues.
