This is the TV series which I felt like adding a review on IMDb for the very first time, especially, even before completely watching all the episodes. Breaking Bad was my favorite TV show ever and I never believed that there would be any other TV series with such amazing casting and character development at that level when it comes to being realistic. But after watching Narcos, I went ahead watching TV dramas made with other languages (other than English); then I found Nobel accidentally and completely started in believing in non- English/non-Hollywood creations.
When it comes to casting and character development, I believe they have done lots of research in studying the common attitudes, behavior, personalities, and psychological background of real people and the actors/actresses are 100% realistic and natural in their acting. Frankly, the quality of their acting is unbelievably amazing; I do not have enough words to express or describe it!!
I wished if I knew the Norwegian language while watching this. Because the composition of dialogues is too good to miss a single word of it. So I have to keep observing the subtitle. And their acting (expressions, gestures etc) is too good to miss by paying attention to subtitles. Everything has been composed in a well connecting manner and the presentation of the story is excellent in every aspect!
These days we tend to watch superheroes, fantasies and unrealistically hypothetical stories. But there are still some amazing people who see things differently and come up with even better stories that connect our day-to-day lives really well with realistic characters! Nobel is obviously one good example for that! This deserves 10/10!!!
P.S: I am a Sri Lankan who comes from a completely different cultural background. But this story feels so realistic and so natural even to me! Therefore, you can imagine how amazing the story, casting/acting and the character development of this is. The actors/actresses deserve serious recognition and in my opinion, Askel Hennie deserves the best actor award in every event I know.
