I’ve written about Shetland–the islands–before, but today I want to tell you about a new show you should watch!
Several years ago I read a series of mysteries by Anne Cleeves that take place in Shetland, and a couple years after that they created a TV series about it. The show is filmed in Shetland, and there are even some Shetlanders in the show.
So, you can imagine my disappointment when for the past couple years, I wasn’t able to watch it.
And then it happened. Netflix picked it up! WOOT!
I basically spent the last week of my downtime watching Shetland. It’s quite good. I love seeing the island and hearing the accents. Warms my heart (despite the fact the show revolves around murders…).
I highly recommend you watch it. Let me know what you think (and if you can understand everything they’re saying!).
Bonus: If you haven’t seen Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot and are not super easily offended, I recommend that movie as well. Now I feel like I need to read the book!
