  • US version of Lars von Trier's "Riget"

    4.0
    Although this series is optically pleasing, it never reaches the high quality and unique humour of the Danish original. The new elements introduced here to set it apart from Lars von Trier's version seem forced and mostly unnessecary (like the talking anteater, a creature feeding solely on ants that still has to mention that they are "delicious" in the pilot - which is just lame)...

    I grant that my opinion may be prejudiced, as I consider "Riget" the best TV series ever made, in part because of the "Dogma" style storytelling. The American version uses state-of-the-art camerawork, lighting and set decoration, and in this regard satisfies all the expectations the audience might have from a horror-themed series - and this is exactely why "Kingdom Hospital" is nothing more but average and ordinary...
