"the Victims' time is simply now, in prime time."
"Our soundtrack is nedsolkat, the heroes are gone. With the sad documentary about Michael Jackson's victims is lifted, hopefully the 90s of the last denial."
"To romanticize their own generation is always ridiculous, as if it would be something exceptional with it. My teenage years happened to coincide with Luke Perry's lazy eye and a perfect James Dean-haircut in the ”Beverly Hills 90210” and Keith Flint in The Prodigys deranged dance on MTV."
"So they went both 90-talsikonerna and died on the same day. So different but united by time and chance. "
"By another coincidence it was the same day the documentary ”Leaving Neverland” (SVT play on Sunday) was released in the united states, a four hours long and painfully detailed story about stardom, grooming and sexual abuse with popvärldens all time greatest idol Michael Jackson in the centre."
"Already in 1993 appeared the first charges against Jackson from the 13-year-old Jordan Chandler, but the parties made up economically and when there was a trial ten years later, on alleged abuses at another boy, war he by the jury."
"Both of the boys had parents who claimed to be looking for money, and when Jackson's former barnkompisar Macauley Culkin and choreographer Wade Robson testified in his favor, leaning enough to cast doubt on the allegations."
"the Superstar may have been eccentric and traumatised by his violent childhood, but a perpetrator? Nah."
"In the ”Leaving Neverland” is it right to Robson, who was a 7-year-old australian Jackson-imitator when he got to meet his idol, and James Safechuck, then 10-year-old Pepsireklamskådis, who speak out about the alleged abuse. The british director Dan Reed gives their picture, and as for the ”We survived R Kelly” (SVT), the one-sidedness of both a deficiency and a strength."
"That documentaries are the most problematic because they only give one side of a fragment of the reality (which you may choose to believe or not) – but that testimony affects those who punch in the stomach."
"In the ”We survived R Kelly,” is it primarily on the quantity of stories. In ”Leaving Neverland”, it is the constituent parts, with extremely detailed descriptions of abuse and the psychological confusion the victims end up in. Robson and Safechuck are living in the twisted ”love relationships” with Michael and when they are changed out to the new boys become the avgrundsdjupt sad, and jealous."
"Still now, in spite of their accusations, they hold of him, and Robson says that the star's death took him harder than his own father's suicide. It is rather sorrow than anger in their eyes makes the documentary very unpleasant."
"In the background we get a glimpse of a always self-pitying Jackson, deeply alone and himself a victim of abuse. In the rear view mirror appears to be the 90s as something of a tipping point."
"A last generation where silence undisturbed got advise, in the internet's infancy, where the rich and famous could live spared from the threat of revelations on social media."
"no matter what you feel about risk with the public skampålar it seems that the world is finally ready to listen to the vulnerable stories. Silence pendulum has swung to a gallskrik. "
"Extra telling is the fact that the very prim and proper SVT, and not any sensationskanal, gives documentaries legitimacy by showing them. The victims ' time is simply now, in prime time."
"... documentary. If war correspondents are heroes or self-absorbed adrenalinjunkies you might wonder after seeing the ”Deadly mission” (SVT Play), a docudrama that portrays the legendary reporter Marie Colvins final assignment in Syria in 2012. The strongest, however, is the reminder of the crimes committed against the locals and that Syria is so much more than the reports of refugees, ICE and death. The interpreter Wa’el who introduces himself as ”vegetarianist” and "atheist" becomes a powerful image of hope, power, and creativity."
"... quiz. ”All against all” (Channel 5) with Filip & Fredrik is a småkul substitute now that the ”On track”-the season is over. Common general knowledge mixed with extremely specific populärkulturell knowledge (Julia Roberts brother, anyone?) and klurighet. With more or less dedicated competitor, as Ebbot Lundberg, Martina Haag and Rickard Olsson."
"... drakfest. Just in time to finalsäsongen of ”Game of thrones” will kick off on HBO Nordic on april 15 begins SVT2 show season seven on Wednesday evenings. The first section, ”Dragonstone” contains, inter alia, Daenarys dramatic ”return” to Dragonstone, a bloody revenge, and a right unnecessary cameo by Ed Sheeran."
"... comedy. It strösslas with the word genius, but if someone really deserved the epithet, it is Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the creator behind the ”Killing Eve” (HBO Nordic). Now she is back with season two of ”Fleabag” (Amazon prime) on the BBC, and the premiere, an indescribably uncomfortable family dinner, is just the hit, I barely dared to dream about."
