For most of the year I'm thinking it's so quiet on the Shetland Islands, I imagine it to be so serene, the scenery is stunning, population not huge and a low crime rate. Well that is until someone goes and upsets that for a tv series and suddenly the place comes alive, not with the sound of music but with murder!!!
Did you see the surprise on everyone's faces when they were told not to get too comfortable as there had been a body discovered on the beach? It was like, woah we're on tv, let's go. Following the pattern of other crime drama programmes this year so far the body wasn't complete, yes there have been more chopped up bodies this year than I have ever seen before.
I bet when strangers turn up on Shetland they are closely watched because there is a slim chance they may be murdered or found dismembered somewhere especially if being followed by a tv crew. To be fair though it has started out to be a brilliant series once again. Douglas Henshall is giving that moody look again, I think I've seen him smile a few times but not often. I'm sure when Christmas comes around he does crack a smile when opening his pressies and at the surprise of an amazing treat from a Christmas cracker.
I quite like his character as he fits the storylines well, I can't imagine a jolly, happy go lucky crime solver with too much energy....that's for other crime dramas. Don't be mislead as it's never the person you think it is that's the culprit so keep an open mind if you have never watched it before. Where have you been if you've not seen Shetland before? Helping solve crime on the busy mainland? No Shetland is where all the action is, take a catch up and you'll see, it's never boring on these beautiful Scottish islands.
Hey we saw the end of Cold Feet then this week. Blimey all the way through I just kept shouting 'for goodness sake everyone stop being so miserable and be happy for them'. I thought for a minute they were going to bin their relationship because of everyone not liking it but thank goodness they didn't. Yes it was a lot to get everyones heads around but they are both single and not doing any harm. I am of course talking about Adam and Karen getting together and I know it's not real but in Cold Feet world it's totally as real as real life.
A brilliant end to the series and I will miss it so much, just hope it comes back again. It has to surely, we need to know how this relationship is going to go on and we need to see how Jenny goes on with her treatment. Please important people at ITV, bring it back.
I need a strong brew to prepare for more tv this week especially another episode of Shetland. Just as you think you are about to watch a nice travel programme showing you around Shetland.....No don't be fooled, there's murder in them hills, mountains, ship yards and factory places.
Have a great week and if you love music I will be back tomorrow for Music Monday so join me then.
Take care for now.
