It's TV Frioday!

Yay, it’s Friday – the best day of the week – the start of the weekend! And if you’re staying in tonight in Denmark, you’ll – selvfølgelig – be watching telly!

It all starts at 7pm with Disney Sjov (‘Disney Fun’) – a mix of new and old Disney cartoons. It’s become a real tradition – they’ve been showing it forever on DR1 (the main public channel). The Danes grow up with it and, yes - guilty as charged – we have even based our mealtimes around it… ;) It’s a hyggelig (cosy) moment when the adults break out the red wine and the kids get their weekly ration of slik (sweets). How about some skum? [See my You are what you eat?]

Yummy 'skum'!
Yummy 'skum'!

Then hot on the heels of Disney Sjov comes Danish X-Factor. No introduction needed there, surely? Truth be told, it’s been a pretty boring season so far. No-one we have really loved, or loved to hate. But there are the occasional moments of brilliance, like last week’s performance by Amanda. She did a fantastic version of “Hollow Talk”, a song by the Danish band Choir of Young Believers. Sounds familiar? It was the theme tune from the tv series The Bridge / Broen / Bron.

Have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!
