''Dagvaktin'' (English translation "Day Shift") is an Icelandic WorkCom, and the sequel series to the wildy popular (in Iceland, anyway) ''Series/{{Naeturvaktin}}''. It stars the same ComicTrio of Georg, Daníel and Ólafur Ragnar, but is set in an isolated hotel in Iceland's Westfjords, owned and run by the formidable and sex-mad Gugga. HilarityEnsues.

In this series, the characters get out and about more, instead of being tied solely to their workplace, and meet various locals. There is also some character development, and we learn a lot more about what makes the main characters tick, especially [[TragicVillain Georg]]. The series also has a greater level of drama, as the characters deal with tragedy, family problems and an unfortunate incident with a [[FryingPanOfDoom frying pan]].
!!This show provides examples of:
* BadBoss: Georg (again) when he finally gains control of the hotel.
* BerserkButton: Georg has several, which he uses with increasing frequency as the series progresses.
* BlackComedyRape: [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale Gugga forces herself on Ólafur]]. Daníel, however, is not amused.
* BreakTheCutie: Both Daníel and Ólafur get this. See the entry for '''Woobie'''.
* ButtMonkey: Ólafur. Still picked on mercilessly by Georg, who seems convinced that it's for Ólafur's own good.
* ChewingTheScenery: Georg in his rages. So very much.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Daníel doesn't drink. When he finally has some wine at a concert we see why.
** Also Georg. Normally he speaks out against the evils of alcohol, but after he kicks Ólafur out of the hotel he indulges in some brandy. The results aren't very pretty.
* TheDitz: Ólafur. Loveable but not very bright.
* FinancialAbuse: Georg does this to Ólafur by withholding his wages, telling him that they're going in a joint savings fund. In truth, the money goes under Georg's bed.
* FreudianExcuse: Georg. Plenty of his "foibles" can be explained by his upbringing and relationship with his mother, Bjarnfreður. For an example, see under '''Squick'''.
* {{Tsundere}}: Georg appears to be a Type A Tsundere.

!!Episodes of this show provide examples of:
* AbusiveParents: Arguably, Bjarnfreður to Georg.
** Daníel's parents are very emotionally manipulative and rather selfish, one reason why he's moved out to the Westfjords.
* TheBully: Daníel's brother. Highly paid neurosurgeon, graduate of Johns Hopkins, [[DrJerk big jerk]].
* CainAndAbel: Daníel and his brother.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Delivered to Georg by Flemming, who's finally had enough of his father's interference.
* StrawManPolitical: Georg does this in several episodes, most notably his Midsummer's Day speech in the final episode.
* TheUnFavourite: Daníel is TheUnFavourite in his family.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: When Daníel is panicking after he finds out about [[spoiler: Ylfa's pregnancy.]]
