Seething since 2000*
1. Swedish children’s television.
I was lucky. I grew up with top-notch 1980s Oz content and characters like Spider McGlurk and all of his pals on Secret Valley, Simon Townsend’s Wonder World and, my personal favourite, the barmy cast of Wombat.
So, it’s been a real pleasure to experience the myriad joys of SVT (or, more specifically, SVT Barn) over the past 11 years, and I will miss it so.
Then there’s the choice modern-day offerings such as Melodifestivalen, Värsta bästa barnvakterna, En hederlig jul med Knyckertz and Sommarskuggan.
SVT Barn really speaks my language.
By which I mean my Swedish is still so elementary that children’s television is pretty much the only Swedish media I can understand.
But then again, when it comes to slime, words can only say so much.
Hej då, SVT Barn.
