Shetland: Seasons 1-3

Blew through the first three seasons of Shetland on Netflix. If you love police procedurals, murder mysteries, and U.K television add Shetland to your must watch list. The writing, acting and directing are solid. The Scottish scenery is gorgeous. I grew to love each of the main characters due to wonderful performances from Douglas Henshall, Alison O’Donnell, and Steven Robertson. Guest stars in season three included a number of my favorite character actors Ciarán Hinds, Anna Chancellor, and Archie Panjabi (yes, Kalinda!). Adapted from books by Ann Cleeves, Shetland provides comfort food for those of us who need our murder mysteries spiced with some sexy accents. FYI, these are small town Scottish accents so best to keep the wee sub-titles on, aye? The wrap-up on Season 3 felt a bit awkward to me. But not enough to tarnish the series. I’m going with a 4 out of 5.
