Spellbinding!
5 March 2015 | by zenjunkieSee all my reviews

If you haven't started watching this yet. Start now! However, those of you who have a low attention span and want instant gratification. Move on. But those of you who like intelligent, class drama, class acting, a great cast, a fantastic setting, an intriguing storyline that unfolds slowly but with enough pace to keep you glued to the screen - you will not be disappointed. This is for you. Other reviews have called it dire, boring, confusing, slow etc etc. These are the kind of people who may be entertained by movies like 'I saw the devil' (truly awful) and perhaps they might perceive 'Fifty shades of grey' as intelligent drama! 'Fortitude' is the kind of storytelling we need more of. Quality of the highest sort. For those who say 'nothing ever happens' (after 2 episodes) - are they actually watching? Do these people have no patience? ***Small spoiler***. It's now 6 episodes in and things are getting very interesting indeed. Beginning to wonder if something supernatural or maybe alien is stirring…***

Sadly, we live in times where everything has to move too fast and God forbid imagination should be engaged. Why? I believe its down to attention span. Check out other slow TV programmes- Broadchurch and True Detective, for instance. How good were they! This is in the same league. Watch.
