This weird TV show from Norway will be your new favorite Netflix binge

Norway’s slam hit Slow TV has never left its home country, but it’s hard to understand why.

Their first broadcast in 2009 was a 7.5 hour long train ride from Bergen to Oslo. It turned out to be immensely popular and was watched by two million people – roughly 45 percent of Norway’s population.

After that a lot more shows followed, all of them with exciting names like National Knitting Morning. This particular show features a group of people holding a group discussion for four straight hours, followed by them knitting for 7.5 hours — all while trying to break the world record for knitting a sweater.

These and other amazingly slow shows have long been confined to their home country, but thanks to a deal with Netflix they’re now available to watch in most countries.
