the first trailer for Under the Dome was released. Ok, it’s not really full length trailer, but a teaser trailer? Ugh I hate all these gimmicky names, I mean O RLY with all that.
My grumpiness aside and although you cannot see all that much in the trailer I am still cautiously optimistic. Maybe it’s because I’m currently reading 11/23/63 and loving it! Also (and I have probably mentioned this before) if I’m looking to add new things to my reading list anything recommend by King usually ends up being really good (you can look up his books/TV/movie lists at EW, if you are like me nosey about what other people are reading and looking for recommendations).
But I digress. Under the Dome trailer thingy below.
So I tried to dig up as much information as possible to compile it all in one post and divide the links by countries. By all means if you have any additional info, please feel free to share it in the comments and I do hope you will find this post useful.
Almost all of the Scandinavian shows in the UK can be seen on BBC Four. Here is an update from BBC Media centre on all the upcoming shows that will air in the near future (if you can’t be bothered to click, it includes Borgen (season 3), The Bridge (season 2) and Arne Dahl (more details about the series can be found at the production page).
For people outside of UK, google Film on TV (but do take into consideration the time difference). And that is all I will say about that.
Some Scandinavian shows are available on Netflix. I am being geo-cock-blocked so I can’t check, soz for that, but what I have gathered from our lovely readers shows that can be streamed on Netflix include The Eagle, The Protectors and the original Killing.
Borgen is available on Link TV (thanks again Cynthia!)
Elinor asked about Annika Bengtzon and here are some of the details I could find on wikipedia. I did contact the production company Yellow Bird regarding distribution channels for some of the stuff they have produced and will update the post once I get the info.
If you would like to check whether you can view some of Scandinavian shows in your domicile countries, it is sometimes useful to look up their wiki pages, as channels where the shows air are listed. See example for The Killing.
any of you love Game of Thrones? Hm thought as much. You will be delighted to know that Game of Thrones exhibition might be coming to a city near you.
The exhibition includes Backwater Bay Experience, an interactive experience where you will be immersed in the epic battle of Blackwater Bay (that sounds like load of fun, but then again I thought this was fun so I might not be the best person to ask); the Iron Throne where you will be able to sit your tush down and have your picture taken (pics or it didn’t happen!!!) and more than 70 artifacts including costumes, armors, props and assorted weapons from all of the noble houses featured in the series. And as an added incentive the exhibition will also feature some pieces from the upcoming season.
Obviously if you do plan on going, have a good nosey and do let us know how it was and whether it lived up to the hype.
Now for the where/when/how.
The exhibition will travel to 5 international cities and the dates are listed below:
From what I have gathered the exhibition is free to public, but I presume it will involve some queuing. Be as it may, if you do find yourself in any of the cities listed above, you will know where to go.
