It appears Netflix has pulled the plug on one of their first ever original series Lilyhammer. While the show certainly was not for everyone it did have its fans, and the fish out of water story line of a mobster exiled in the witness protection program to Lilyhammer Norway was very refreshing. The Sopranos, Stevie Van Zandt series lead was excellent as a New York mafia member hiding out and appeared stunned in his twitter announcement:
#Lilyhammer RIP. Not my decision. Let’s just say for now the business got too complicated. Very proud of our 24 shows. New ideas on the way.

So if you interested in a comedy that is a little off the beaten path give Lilyhammer a shot, and with only 28 episodes it makes for a great weekend binge.
