Critic Reviews for Fortitude: Season 1

There's incentive enough to hang around in the frozen north for another episode or two. But it needs sharper focus or there may be an epidemic of cold feet.

You'd say it was straight out of Hollywood, except that it is far too weird to have been commissioned by some weedy, greedy, risk-averse studio boss.

Push Fortitude to the top of your winter watch list.

What we're most likely to get from Fortitude is simpler: a good, well-told mystery. That's another way to get through those long, cold winter nights.

The resplendent panoramic visuals are a show in themselves. So the bigger your HD screen the better, with Fortitude's overriding whodunit gradually firming its grip while those icy, snowy vistas stay strong.

Fortitude is a superior crime show because it makes clear, from the start, the guilt of all involved. You can't keep the cold out forever.

Sure, the scenery is great but everything else simply fell apart in this uninteresting mystery-crime drama.
