Great show as always. Bummed i have to wait a year for new episodes


Yeah!! Love this show! Glad to see it back!!


Is the show coming back?


I just finished the third season. The whole season revolves around one murder mystery. It was fantastic! I've upgraded my rating from an 8 (great) to a 9 (superb) out of 10. Much see drama, in my books. Now I'm going to revisit season 1 & 2. I think I missed most of it because of my pain meds. It's worth a second look.


While in recovery from surgery, I've started watching Shetland, a crime drama on the island communities of the Shetland Islands. Slow paced, as one might expect from unusual activities being investigated among people who know everyone, but good story lines, excellent, believable character development. I give the series an 8 (great) out of 10, but I'm going to have to rewatch some of it as I was knocked out by pain meds between a part one and a part two of one of the episodes sets.


Really enjoyed the series. Great acting and great stories. Real heart breaker at the end of season 3.


is shetland real? can i move? ^^


Brilliant series - hoping for more episodes.
