Both seasons are good, with season 2 pretty much concluding but left open for a 3rd. Season 2 has ramped up the blood & guts effects, wasn't necessarily required to tell the story -- but the effects people must've enjoyed themselves. Unique series, nothing else like it. Lots of talent both in front and behind the cameras, very well done.

A really well made series in the category of "who dun it". Very thrilling and certainly well acted and produced. My advice: watch.

I loved season 1 but after it finished the show had a sharp decline in quality. The tense mysterious atmosphere had been raplaced by a human experimantation plot intertwined with a undeveloped political conspiracy that no one even tries to explain. Among the new characters we have a stereotypical corrupt politician, stereotypical junkie delinquents, a killer whoes shamanic rituals and beliefs were also never explained and one of the main characters of the first season was turned into a demonic boogeyman. At this point I feel as if Fortitude is geting the Wayward Pine treatmant, as if Sky atlantic wanted to continiue the show but non of the directors and writers did, so they got an entirely new crew. My recomendation is watch Season 1 and pretend it ended there if you can.
