Manchester Swedish Language Meetup Group Message Board › Swedish TV comedy, Happy Hour, and Swedish Spirit of Summer.
There’s a new comedy TV series airing on NBC, called “Welcome to Sweden”. It’s a sitcom which is half in English, half in Swedish - a comedic view of Greg Poehler's life, having moved to Sweden to marry and live with a Swedish woman and her family.
You can view all the episodes here, with optional Swedish sub-titles:
or you can view each episode here, with English sub-titles. As it’s a US website, you will need to make it appear that you’re in the US by using a VPN or on Macs using something like the MediaHint extension to Chrome. I’m sure you all know much more about this technology than me and there are bound to be lots of other ways to watch it as well.
Don’t forget that we now have Meetups on a Wednesday and a Thursday – the first Thursday and third Wednesday of every month. The next one is this coming Wednesday 16th. I’m not sure it’s still on, but the last time we were there, there was a happy hour – two drinks for the price of one – up to 7:00pm. A good reason to get there early!
Finally, just a reminder about the Swedish Spirit of Summer – Swedish food and drink on Saturday 2nd August.
