Great news for Netflix subscribers and a great reason for non-subscribers to take the plunge (which only sounds like a paid commercial message b/c I really mean it): Steve Van Zandt’s terrific comic-gangster Norway-based TV series “Lillyhammer” returns for a second season on Friday night. And you should check it out.
Funny, tense, a trifle sinister, excellent fun to watch, “Lillyhammer” plays like a Soprano-out-of-water comic-drama, with SVZ’s Silvio character living a sweet post-coma life in snowy Norway. Funny how no amount of sweet-natured socialism can keep shit from getting real, particularly when it comes to the criminal element in all of us. Very funny, in fact.
Here’s the trailer. Join Netflix and you can stream the first episode now.
