'Borgen' Is Back

I have been a huge fan of Borgen since the moment I started watching it.  It has become a huge success and won the BAFTA last weekend for International TV show.   Season two starts this Sunday, June 3 at 9pm on LINK TV.   You gotta do a bit of work to find the channel (I am on direct TV and we have it- DIRECTV channel 375 and Dish Network channel 9410.) Here is info on Link TV.   If you don't get the station you can also stream the episode for free for 2 weeks here.
