Lilyhammer is a gripping fish-out-of-water story set in Norway, starring "The Sopranos" mainstay and E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt. This new Original Series premiers on Netflix on Feb. 6, 2012 in the USA, Canada and Latin America.

Looks interesting, I'll check it out. All 8 episodes will be available simultaneously, cool.

Netflix to premiere all eight episodes of 'Lilyhammer' simultaneously
January 3, 2012 | 1:28 pm

As Netflix debuts its first original series, "Lilyhammer," on Feb. 6, the video subscription service has settled on a scheduling strategy suited for the digital world: making every episode available at once.

Signaling that it's embracing users' preference to watch multiple episodes of their favorite programs as a "marathon," Netflix won't be spacing out the eight shows of its first season of the comedic crime series over several weeks.

"If you love the first episode, there is no need to wait until next week, or to set a DVR, to catch the next one," Netflix's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said in a statement Tuesday.

"Lilyhammer" stars E Street Band rocker Steven Van Zandt in a role similar to the one he played on the popular and now defunct HBO series "The Sopranos," as a gangster in the federal witness protection program who moves to Lillehammer, Norway. Netflix is the exclusive distributor of the show, which is produced in Norway, the U.S., Canada and Latin America.

It's the first of several series to which Netflix has bought exclusive rights in a bid to expand its lineup beyond television reruns and older films. Later this year the service will start streaming the original political drama "House of Cards," starring Kevin Spacey. In the first half of 2013, Netflix will run new episodes of the canceled Fox comedy "Arrested Development."

Netflix has indicated that it probably will follow a similar release strategy for its other upcoming original programs, although exact launch dates have not been set.

More than 60% of the content viewed on Netflix's Internet streaming is television. Consumers have come to use the service more as a way to catch up on TV shows they missed on-air than to view its more limited collection of movies, most of which are at least a decade old.

Season One was outstanding! Hilarious and interesting as it gave insight into Norwegian culture. Well done, Netflix.

Last show of the second season was just so classic. Don't want to give anything away. Watch the series. Way better than most shows.

Finished it yesterday. I thought there were a couple of weak moments, but overall a very enjoyable show. Glad to see season 3 has been given a go.

Definitely a good watch, IMO.  Glad to see both Netflix and Hulu coming out with their own shows.  Having gone cable free, it's nice to see sources other than the major networks getting into the game.

I don't know why this thread does not get more traction .. it's a great show .. I guess having it all available at once keeps the speculation factor and discussion at a minimum ..

This is one of those shows that I probably would have enjoyed, in a less tele-cluttered world. Some good stuff just gets triaged out. frown.gif

I still haven't started on 'House of Cards'. eek.gif

Never even heard of it. Still need to watch Breaking Bad, House of Cards, and Orange is the New Black.

I agree. Wifey and I really liked Season 1, were extremely disappointed in 2. But that's just us.
