'Welcome to Sweden' finale recap: I have a dream

Bruce, our fearless friend who gave up everything in New York to move across the world so he could begin a new chapter with the love of his life, wakes up half naked in Aubrey Plaza’s bed. This is not a good start to his three-month stint back in the States. READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: S.O.S.

NBC pulled a fast one on us and aired a special online episode this week. I’m glad I watched it because that particular episode had quite a few twists and turns involving four main characters. If you haven’t seen it, you will be thoroughly confused. Don’t worry. I’ve got you covered. I’ll fill you in on what you need to know. (You can watch the full episode online. It’s only available until Sept 27.) READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: The name of the game

I’m always excited to see Amy Poehler featured as a guest on Welcome to Sweden. Even though she’s on the screen for a total of two minutes, she completely steals the show. That is, until Aubrey Plaza makes an appearance. Give me those two comedic geniuses and a couple of famous Swedish dudes named Björn, and you have the recipe for a successful episode! READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: Mama mia

Everyone knows that Patrick Duffy is television royalty. He’s Bobby Ewing, for goodness’ sake. I figured I would enjoy his guest appearance as Bruce’s father, but I never expected that Illeana Douglas, playing the part of Bruce’s mother, would have me in a fit of giggles. Once the American-loving Uncle Bengt showed up at the parental meet-and-greet, I was tickled pink. READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: Super trouper

I think this week’s ABBA title is fitting since Welcome to Sweden has been renewed for a second season. NBC rewarded this quirky little show with a time slot in its fall lineup after only five episodes. This proves that the network has extreme faith in the Poehler family, as well as America’s propensity to both adore and fear IKEA and anything that hails from its motherland. Insert meatball joke here. READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: Money, money, money

When I was in high school, a lovely blond foreign exchange student sat next to me in computer literacy. She was kind, respectful and smart. I remember asking questions about her home and thinking that her answers were interesting, yet I don’t remember what country she was from or her name. READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: Knowing me, knowing you

Emma and Bruce are ready to begin their lives together. Her tenants have finally moved out of her apartment, and Bruce is eager to add his own sense of style into the décor mix. He thinks they should paint the walls either brown or red because that would work best with his stuff, which will be arriving from New York City any day now. Emma scoffs at the idea of "poo-brown" walls. In her words, "It should be like a gallery. Art goes on the walls. The walls are not art." READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' recap: Lay all your love on me

Let me begin by saying that I still have high hopes for Welcome to Sweden. It’s only the second episode, and I’m rooting for Greg Poehler’s sitcom baby to start teething. But I’m a little nervous that they called the big guns out so early in the season. And by "big guns," I mean Will Ferrell. I’ll get to him in a minute. READ MORE...

'Welcome to Sweden' series premiere recap: Take a chance on me

It wasn’t long ago that Greg Poehler was sitting around a table with his wife’s family as a new transplant in Sweden. It took him seconds to conclude that this new life would probably make for a great sitcom. He sent a rough script to his sister, who just happens to be comedic goddess Amy Poehler, with the hope that she would give him tips on important issues such as font types and sizes. Instead, Amy signed on as an executive producer. READ MORE...
