Herrens Veje

Post by Res Ipsa »

I just binged this Danish drama on Netflix. It revolves around the life of a family in which the men have been Lutheran ministers for generations. It’s about flawed humans trying to find their place in the world and their relationship to the divine. I thought the story was gripping and the characters were interesting, with quite a bit of depth.

It’s two seasons of ten shows each; Danish with English subtitles.

I have watched the first episode so far. It is interesting, but I wish Danish subtitles were one of the available options, so I could refresh both my written and spoken Danish.

A Netflix series I particularly like is the Norwegian romantic Comedy, Hjem til Jul (Home for Christmas), about a Young Norwegian Nurse, who after lying to her nosy but concerned family about having acquired a new boy friend to replace the man she recently broke up with, sets about actually finding a new one in time to introduce him to her family before their annual extended family Christmas dinner, so she can sit at the "grownup's table", instead of having to share the "kiddie table", with all her little nieces and nephews. One of the things I particularly like about it, besides the entertaining storyline, is that both subtitles and and audio are available several languages, including the original Norwegian, English, German, Spanish and French. So one has options for mixing or matching the various dubbed languages with the various subtitle languages. Good opportunities for practicing several languages, though I found that the subtitles sometimes don't always exactly match the dialogue word for word in translation, or even when both the spoken dialogue and the subtitles are in the same language.

Another thing I like about the series is that one of the characters is an elderly Danish lady patient, who insistently speaks Danish, rather than Norwegian, so I get to hear and refresh my understanding of both Spoken Norwegian and Danish.
No precept or claim is more likely to be false than one that can only be supported by invoking the claim of Divine authority for it--no matter who or what claims such authority.
