Behind You is a spectacular television series in America. It takes place in an environment where the dialogue is mostly spoken in Icelandic and when they show parts of their documentary, it looks like you are watching a mix of an English show with interviews in Icelandic. However, behind you by John Landis and Stephen Lang is a funny series that often laughs its way through and is really at its best when you laugh at the things that happen.
The premise is very simple: Laraine Swanson (Amy Landis) is the owner of a small, country-style motel with the help of her husband, Henry (Christopher Lee), her son, Robert (Scott McCall), and her daughter, Doris (Deborah Martin). That's about all she has: friends, family, and the land. The mother is also the waitress at a diner across the street, and her real job is to look after the family's herd of sheep.
Behind You belong to a genre called serie. This is a short format movie for television that was first broadcast in the 90s. The serie was followed by movies of the same type as well. They have recently come back in fashion, and are now being made again.
A serie will begin with a standard story, then dive into a different one, and finally end with an out-of-the-way story or a strange story with an unexpected twist. The best serie can give you many ideas that can lead to other serie. However, most serie need to be watch on your own before taking part. These are few of the films behind you by John Landis and Stephen Lang:
The first serie tells you the story of a man who likes to eat his fingernails. It is interesting and hilarious, but not to the point of being too fun. You will just keep on laughing as he gobbles them up, until he gets all messy. Don't miss it.
Red Meat tells you about a story that includes the struggle between a good and a bad guy. You see, one character wants to give a woman herpes, which she doesn't want, because she doesn't want to get old. The girl's family is not happy about this, but there is no way they can stop the guy from doing what he wants. So there is a huge fight at the diner.
Unforgiven tells you the story of a brain parasite. It is a little longer than a standard serie, but it is definitely worth it. You get a unique view of the human mind that you usually wouldn't get in a regular serie.
Behind You are very humorous. It will make you laugh, but don't expect any emotional effects. It is still funny, but it will only get funnier as you watch more serie.
