"Welcome to Sweden" Season 1, episode 5 "Fitting In" or "Vänner" aired in the U.S. on Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014. It aired in Sweden on April 18, 2014. As the title of the episode suggests, it's all about Bruce Evans (Greg Poehler) trying to fit in Sweden. More importantly, it's about him trying to get along with Emma Wiik's (Josephine Bornebusch) Swedish friends and family. Read on for the "Welcome to Sweden" Season 1 recap of episode 5 "Fitting In."
Actor Greg Poehler poses during a photocall for the television series "Welcome To Sweden" during the annual MIPCOM television programme market in Cannes, southeastern France, October 7, 2013. The International film and programme market for TV, video, cable and satellite (MIPCOM) opens from October 7 to October 10 on the French Riviera.
Aside from adjusting to life in Sweden after living in New York for a while, Bruce had to face the fact that he stuck out like a sore thumb in Stockholm. Plus, some of Emma's friends and family are not comfortable with speaking in English all the time. This leads Bruce into exerting extra effort to fit in with them, including trying to speak Swedish and hanging out with them. He even used Emma's laptop when he called Lisa (Claudia Galli) and talked to her in Swedish. Bruce also had to win over Emma's mom, Viveka Börjesson (Lena Olin). Meanwhile, Bruce's friendship with Hassan (Basim Sabah Albasim), an Iraqi, got even more strained.
The "Welcome to Sweden" Season 1, episode 5 "Fitting In" featured several stars including Peter Viitanen (Peo), Claudia Galli (Lisa), Hanna Alström (Anna), Maja Christenson (Desk Clerk) and Illeana Douglas (Nancy).
