Penny Dreadful fans?

If you have Amazon Prime and want to watch another good series, check out "Fortitude" -- and especially if you like Dr. Victor Frankenstein. I've been watching Fortitude for several episodes, convinced that Dr. F is in it, but ... whaaaa....? Guess what? There are TWO of them:



Yes, twins, Luke and Harry Treadaway.

Oh, and Fortitude is worth watching no matter what. Takes place in Norway (?) on an island where people aren't allowed to die.

(ok, they can die, just not there. Or rather, can't be buried there, since nothing decays there. Which is the premise of the show, that a melting permafrost had unearthed a long-dead animal carrying some sort of disease that is now afflicting the townsfolk).

Check it out.

2. I LOVE Penny Dreadful!

I watch that show as if my life depended on it.

I saw one episode of "Fortitude" based on my brother's recommendation. We got through the first episode and didn't watch anymore. Maybe this summer we will try again, but it was just hard to follow and very slow paced.

3. It is very slow paced

It reminds me of The Killing in that regard, where the pace reflects the setting. This was filmed in Iceland and so the scenery is beautiful, but so cold and sterile. Well, sterile until that ole mammoth thaws...
