Fortitude is a crime thriller, sci-fi drama, and it is a surprisingly good show despite the weird mixture of genres.
The show follows the lives of the residents of the fictional Arctic town of Fortitude, after a shocking crime takes place, and how the residents are dealing with the event. Believe me when I tell you that this is no ordinary crime thriller.
The show is beautiful, whether its the haunting theme song, the dark and atmospheric setting, or the mystical cinematography. You’ll surely be captivated by Fortitude.
The show features an impressive ensemble cast: Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing), Christopher Eccleston (The Leftovers), and Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones) among others.
The show is full of shocking twists, mainly due to the sci-fi fueled plot, and that’s one of the many reasons why I believe it’s one of the best shows of the year so far.
Fortitude is a show that defies the regular plot lines that we see in regular crime thrillers. If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers and science fiction, you’ll definitely love Fortitude. It’s a show that can’t be missed.
