    Season Two now available.

    Anyone else love this? First series was mad as a box of frogs, but gripping and dark, wonderfully atmospheric and great fun too.

    All episodes available in one go for season two.

    Bit more coherent this one. Last one, although still brilliant, was all over the place, veering from horror to drama to black comedy and back again.

    Seems a lot more like it is on the one path this time.

    Sky Atlantic. So either need Sky, or NowTV, unless you can stream it elsewhere.

    I thought the first series was actually pretty good and also fairly easy to follow for the first 7 episodes or so. It only ended up going off track towards the end with the wasp virus stuff.

    Last night I thought it was all over the place and I guess will descend into zombie apocalypse very quickly.

    Pretentious, overly dramatic guff. Not for me.

    I loved the first series. It was all over the place at times though as it swung from genre to genre and went from weird to serious drama.

    Been reading reviews and they say this new series makes more sense than the last one and is easier to follow.

    I'm only on episode 3 of this one mind.

    Oh yes, forgot about that.

    I always took Sisu to mean 'Faceless Corporate Two-faced, Life-sucking Bastards.'

    Oh dear.

    What a steaming pile of rancid donkey poo.

    Started off okay, but by the end, well..... won't spoil it, but very annoyingly bonkers doesn't even begin to describe it.

    I would very much guess that there will not be a Fortitude series 3.

    Doesn't surprise me. Never sure what it was trying to be. It seems to try and cash in on the Danish Noir crime but lacks any of its drama or charecterisation. It has Sophia Grobel and that's it.

    Still it it has Soohia Henin I'd still watch it

    Thought i might find love for this one 1 here - love it - so darkly comic and gory - main gory character cut his nads off this week - laughed like a drain ! even the wife was shutting her eyes - just waiting for a decent death for Ken Stots character with a dodgy scandy jock accent !

    New series streaming all episodes nextv week.

    Found season two batshit crazy, but will at last give this another look to see if its been reigned in at all.

    Not got high hopes, but maybe it will surprise me.

    Just four episodes this time apparently and the final ever series, so think I will stick with it.

    Can't say I blame you.

    Unfortunately I am one of these that once having watched something tend to stick with it just to see what happens next.

    The second series was a real mess.

    That was the 'what the hell!'

    Wasn't about anything that happened in particular, was just a comment on the lunacy. ;)
