The seven-part British television drama miniseries “The Shadow Line” (2011), at least in Scandinavia, was acknowledged higher in 2014 than in 2011. It aired for a third time on the Danish national television channel DR1 in the spring of 2014 and is currently being re-shown in Sweden on SVT so as to, as they put it, “give people a second chance” to watch it.
Understand, this is an extremely unusual decision for the Swedish national network as reairing of a TV-series in Sweden usually occurs on the country’s commercial channels. For non-Swedish TV-series’ this has only happened twice before. The first was with the first five episodes of “Midsomer Murders” (1997-Present) and the two first seasons of “The Sopranos” (1999-2007).
While just in Sweden, this really is an example how shows and movies can age over time, becoming more popular and, sometimes, more acclaimed. Time heals all wounds, but it also gives others strength.
