Fortitude Season 2 Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 5 is where I am this increasingly ridiculous series part ways. I have tried, but while the first series was occasionally “so bad it’s good”, this one has stumbled along like a lame calf being led to the slaughter, desperate to be put down. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and music […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 4 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 4 is the point where I’m still wondering why I’m bothering and I’m going to give this show one more episode after this before I consider calling it a day. Series 1 was similarly (and to coin a term from Dame Denise van Outen) “Mental, mental, chicken oriental”, but at least […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 3 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 3 felt like rather a filler episode where not an awful lot happened, even if what did happen was very weird. After seeing PC Ingrid’s taking Rene Lennox (okay, he’s called Rune, but I’m renaming him Rene after the late, great Gordon Kaye’s character in Allo Allo) into the clink because […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 2 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 2 begins with an unknown drifter talking incoherently while staring at something in the distance… a bear… carrying something… a reindeer calf, but…. he’s got no eyes! How does he smell? TERRIBLE! (or something) Meanwhile, Dan is in hospital with acute alcohol poisoning, possibly antifreeze! Has he been drinking Bart Simpson’s […]

Fortitude Season 2 Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Season 2 comes two years after the first one with which I had a love/hate relationship – hardly anyone could act, hence why I dubbed it ‘Eldorado In The Arctic‘ as well as ‘Nordic Noir meets Acorn Antiques‘. However, being shot in Iceland, the scenery was gorgeous and hypnotic and in 1080p high definition, […]

Cuffs Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Cuffs is, effectively, the BBC’s answer to the long-since-defunct The Bill. As it begins, PC Ryan Draper (Ashley Walters) is teamed up with rookie PC Jake Vickers (Jacob Ifan), and he has just 21 Seconds to show him the ropes as they’re partnered up before Jake’s Dad, and the cop shop’s Chief Superintendent Donut Eater […]

Fortitude Episode 12 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 12 signals the end of ‘Eldorado In The Arctic‘ – bad acting, random accents and disjointed storylines. Yes, it’s the 1992 soap all over again! Vincent’s still trapped inside with Dr Allerdyce and she’s looking none too clever. Being a doctor won’t help her now. Worst still, those flies aren’t flies – they’re […]

Fortitude Episode 11 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 11 means we’re at the penultimate episode of one of the biggest disappointments in television history, so that’s something to be thankful for, at least. Well, Dan did have a change of heart after all, even though it could drop him right in the shit, and he heads out to see Morton, but […]

Fortitude Episode 8 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 8 begins in the aftermath of Shirley vomiting into her Mum’s stomach, and she’s now outside… in the FREEZING cold, barefoot and bloodstained. Whatever she’s been doing in the interim, it’s happened offscreen, which is rather a swizz given how Sweet Fanny Adams has happened ONscreen for the majority of this dirge! So, […]

Fortitude Episode 7 – The DVDfever Review

Fortitude Episode 7 takes us past the halfway point and I was promised this episode would FINALLY be good! That would make the first one, so far, then. It’s Chrrrrrrrrriiiisssttmaaaaaaassss! As Noddy Holder might say. And the bearded nutter who was holding a rifle, earlier in the series, is drinking aplenty. And he’s drinking with […]
