A golden age

Borgen Pressemøde

We are currently living in a Golden Age of television drama – well-written screenplays, innovative narrative techniques, significant themes, gripping stories, mostly true-to-life representations, all superbly-acted, and realized with attention to detail and high production values.  See, for instance:

  • 24 (although many implausible plots, the office politics is true-to-life)
  • Band of Brothers
  • Borgen
  • Breaking Bad
  • The Bridge
  • Covert Affairs
  • Damages
  • Deadwood
  • Generation Kill
  • The Good Wife
  • Homeland
  • The Hour
  • House of Cards
  • The Killing
  • Mad Men
  • The Newsroom
  • Political Animals
  • Prisoners of War (Hatufim)
  • The Sopranos
  • Spiral (Engrenages)
  • Spooks
  • Sports Night
  • Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
  • Suits
  • The Unit
  • The West Wing
  • The Wire

Like the golden age of Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre, one has to wonder:   Why here? Why now?
