Critic Reviews for Fortitude: Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (23)

Given the overarching what-the-hellness and seat-gripping tension, Fortitude is made for bingeing. Just when you think the writers have written themselves into a corner, they serve up another stunning revelation

Push Fortitude to the top of your winter watch list.

What we're most likely to get from Fortitude is simpler: a good, well-told mystery. That's another way to get through those long, cold winter nights.

The resplendent panoramic visuals are a show in themselves. So the bigger your HD screen the better, with Fortitude's overriding whodunit gradually firming its grip while those icy, snowy vistas stay strong.

Fortitude is a superior crime show because it makes clear, from the start, the guilt of all involved. You can't keep the cold out forever.

Fortitude's allure is its off-puttingness; those making a home there must indeed be tenacious, and with Fortitude, the same tenacity is required of its viewers.

Sure, the scenery is great but everything else simply fell apart in this uninteresting mystery-crime drama.
