Slow but enjoyable
16 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a bit slow but it is a more moody, setting driven show to me. I love where they are filming it. I tried to find the beautiful island they just had episode 5 and 6 on, but I did not see it listed anywhere. Can someone post the name of that island. Just stunning. The first few shows the filmed had a gray tone in the filming, (not the stories). I read they actually used filters to dull down the vivid colors to create more of a "mood". Now they seemed to have accepted the fact that they are filming in a beautiful location and letting it shine. I could watch this show just for the scenery really. The mysteries are good, they are not usually the person you think who did it. There is usually an old story revealed to tell us who did it. People's histories and back stories. Which I like. I like the Jimmy Perez character. He seems like such a loving and solid man. I wish I could meet a guy like him! I hope they do a 2nd series. I enjoyed my time with Shetland.
