Now getting ready for its 3rd season as a Netflix exclusive, Lilyhammer is being billed as the "Snowpranos". The only character you will recognize is Steven Van Zandt. All the rest are Norwegians who have lots of Ø's in their names!

The premise of the show is Van Zandt plays an east coast mobster (now there's a stretch!) who testifies against one of the bosses. In exchange for his testimony, he goes into the witness protection program and is relocated, at this request, to Lillehammer Norway. He says he fell in love with the place during the 1994 Olymics and besides, who would think of looking for him there?

It takes a little getting used to since Van Zandt only speaks English and all the other characters speak Norwegian about 95% of the time. But yet, he understands them perfectly! But don't worry, there are subtitles!

They have only made 16 episodes (so far!) and they are only about 45 minutes long so you could easily binge watch the series and get caught up before the next season starts (which is some time later this year... I think)
