Strangely surreal teenagers' show with some great actors
26 July 2006 | by TVSeriesFTWSee all my reviews

In a world where seemingly everyone is a caricature - Åke the insane super nerd; Lill-Erik, the ultimate punch-bag; Klimpen, the epitome of a bully; Torleif, the recorder-playing, cultured snob; and of course the hot girls, Paulina, Nadja, etc - Bert himself is just your average teenager, with his fantasies and life experiences. He plays in a garage rock band, the Heman Hunters, plays soccer, longs for company from the opposite sex and secretly writes his diary.

It is a strangely surreal show that expands beyond being an average young-teen angst series like "Eva och Adam" and becomes an oddity that is worth seeing by anyone. The show's intro is classic, where Bert (played brilliantly, I should add, by Martin Andersson) dances around in front of the mirror in his underpants to Lill-Babs' "Älskade Ängel".

Also appearing are Johan Ulvesson (hilarious) as Bert's boring dad, an optician, and Henrik Schyffert as the sort of subtly hilarious game show host that only he could play. Well worth seeing but not a complete hit for Swedish television.
