There are some good TV shows on nowadays. It’s not like the old days where you had to channel-surf 1000 channels and still couldn’t find anything good. There are entire networks producing original content, HBO has quality series, and there is just so much competition that there’s lots of good programming. Favorite show I watched recently was Carnivale on HBO.

Fortitude Season 1 TV Review

­­ ­­

Fortitude Season 1 is beautiful but terrible

From Fortitude is the most northerly town in the world, and the most peaceful – until a prominent member of the community is found eviscerated in his own home, and suddenly the town’s sheriff has his first ever murder to investigate.

It was filmed in Iceland, which means it’s cold, white, and gorgeous.


The pure white snow means when something bleeds, that blood becomes really stark and obvious. True to most horror flicks, there are epic amounts of blood. In a surprise twist that I saw coming a mile away, the source of the horror comes from the thawing mammoth discovered under the ice.

That’s right, it came from the ice, thawed, and wreaked havoc on the small population it encountered, as though the purity of the landscape was disrupted by something unclean and dangerous. The horrible parasite thawed out of the mammoths, laid eggs in human hosts, and ate them alive. Gross!

Compare and contrast with these other snowy horror movies and tv.

See it for the pristine beauty of the Icelandic setting
