This made-for-Netflix three series drama is, sorry, all about how to survive in a post-apocalyptic Denmark when a virus has wiped everyone out. The virus, in this case, comes from the rain, and there is a vaccine – siblings Simone and Rasmus, plus their rag-tag group of survivors, just have to find it. It was a big event – the first original Danish series Netflix has produced – and is aimed primarily at the YA market. The third and final series is set to air in 2020.
For sure, you’ve been looking for the perfect TV show to immerse yourself in the Second Schleswig War of 1864. You’ve come to the right place. This drama series isn’t just about a Prussian-Danish war that you probably haven’t heard of; it’s about two brothers who enlist in the army just before war breaks out, and follows their experiences through the horrors of war. Epic and tragic, it was the most expensive TV series ever filmed when it was made, and stars Pilou Asbæk in one of the lead roles.
