"to Summarize a life in just an hour."
"The art has the ”This is your life” and ”the Stars at the castle” streamlined, at the cost of loss of nerve."
"It felt like ”This is your life” (Open archives, SVT) in the Lasse Holmqvists classic 80-talsversion could last a long time. Both Lill-Babs and Tage Danielsson's program is over two hours long and filled with guests, often men, who complacently spread out. Sometimes it is bewitching otajt and pladdrigt, not least compared with today's effective tv production."
"the Stars had always ”kidnapped” by a poorly masked Weaver and a thrill element was to see how they would react. Happily, the proud, elusive, or perhaps aggressive was taken by surprise? ”This is your life” was a big production and to be honored in several hours at one of the two channels considered probably the most, including the SVT, should be regarded as a great honor."
"One of the most poignant moments was when the great filmcharmören Georg Rydeberg visited his old love Viveca Lindfors program in 1983, a little bit lost and disappointed that it was not he who would be honored. He talked about his deep loneliness, it became headlines and three days later he died in his home (where he was found a month later)."
"But it was a different time, and today's ”This is your life” broadcast on streamingtjänsten Dplay is an extremely välkammad history. The celebs have nothing to fear, they are prepared and will be closest to unreservedly acclaimed in a brisk hour. New-host Carina Berg is genuinely interested and it is no fault of the guests that Leif GW Persson or Ewa Fröling, who finished the first season earlier in the week."
"All of you who followed the recent years' explosion of the program where celebrities eat dinner and talk about their lives, as ”So much better” (TV4) and ”Stars at the castle” (SVT), feeling well again dramaturgy. A little bit of childhood, how they overcame their difficulties and turned them into successes – the same elements, with different details, woven together into a rather simple story."
"you Have, unlike those questions without answers in your life, the wounds that never healed? Maybe it feels the security of the celebrity hard-structured life stories comforting."
"When Claire Wikholm stopped and questioned, Morgan Alling in ”Stars at the castle” in 2015, it was possibly the last time a kändishyllning got to chafe. In this year's edition keeps all obediently to their roles."
"Reasonable, because no one wants to get their own sensitive childhood trauma bulldozrat of a megaloman colleague. And what would be the point of the naked oförlösta sorrows as Saturday night entertainment?"
"at the same time, dramaturgy tradig and predictable. Uncomfortable guests or the unexpected memories rarely get space in the highly thought-out story, now is the entertainment value as soon as in how cleverly the story is portrayed (get beats Marianne mörck's delightful show in the last year slottmys)."
"Someone so pitch-black that Rydeberg would hardly be admitted in today's ”This is your life”."
"... charming. ”Sex education” (Netflix) is an uneven, but likable dramakomediserie on the social obekväme teenager Otis (Asa Butterfield) who lives with his single mother, sexterapeuten Jean (Gillian Anderson). Funny tonårssåpa and sexkomedi with Mikael Persbrandt in a fairly large supporting role as the mother's hunkiga, the Swedish craftsmen."
"... the gala. Good music, the rest ashamed pillow – so, the ”P3 Guldgalan” (BBC1 Saturday, 21.00) is usually summarized. In the year occur among other artists such as Seinabo Sey, Imenella, Markus Krunegård and Miriam Bryant, so if you survive the acceptance speech and programledarmanus waiting, hopefully, some musical reward."
"... the film. Don't miss the Russian Andrei Zvjagintsevs acclaimed ” 'Leviathan' ” (2014) at SVT Play at the weekend. Frustrating and fascinating about a man in a remote village at the Barents sea who battles against a corrupt mayor, an allegorical criticism of Putin's government adopted many."
"... short. ”Swedish secrets: the Prison” (SVT Play) consists of a bunch of admirably concentrated stories from the now defunct Prison, Norrköping's history. Clark Olofsson, Croatian terrorists and escapes – this will give former employees their version of events."
"... documentary. ”Thick-Steffe” (C More) is a series in three parts about Stefan Eriksson, the so-called Uppsala mafia's former leader, who became world famous after he crashed an exclusive Ferrari California in 2006. Spectacular and exciting, but a bit too much of a hyllningsporträtt for my taste."
