Saw your show on the issue of migrants not being paid appropriately. I feel like I understand being a veteran people say they love us and respect us and we have to fight for everything we deserve. These people do so much for our country with no love and then have to fight and have no love when it comes to opening their pockets. And now a president that has zero regard for empathy unless for supermodel that has a umpa lompa fetish. White and embarrassed for how this country is acting and allowing mental patient run this country. Feels way to close to Russia. Thanks for standing up for these hard working Americans. Thanks Shane

Welcome To Sweden is a fantastic show! I got all the humor the whole time through! Thanks for at least the two seasons that were made. The decision to cancel it was a mistake. Main thought here; Welcome To Sweden was one of the best TV shows EVER made and in the future, maybe it will be recognized as such. I theorize that having to read subtitles may have discouraged about 40% or more of the average American viewer which explains the low ratings. The ratings were wrong in this case. This show was SO GOOD ! I hope someone is talking about making a third season and more with another network.
