“Shetland” Detective Series On ‘Britbox’ & ‘Prime’ — Just Amazing, The Best Of The Lot, Better Than ‘Vera’!

by Anura Guruge

Yes, I know that it is probably sacrilegious to say ‘better than Vera‘ — BUT, it is! We, as always, serendipitously, stumbled upon it on ‘Britbox‘ when they started advertising Season 5 (a couple of months ago). We watched Episode 1. It was good. But, we had to wait a whole week to see Episode 2. That was good too. We were hooked. Couldn’t wait another week. So, we watched Season 4, which was also available on ‘Britbox’ — all the way through. Loved it. Better than ‘Loch Ness‘, ‘Then There Were None‘ etc. etc. Better than Vera. Did I already say that?

Then went back to Season 5. Now we were hooked.

Found Seasons 1, 2 & 3 on Amazon Prime. You had to buy them (and they were NOT ‘cheap’). But, hey … you have to pay for quality. So, we watched all of that too.

We have watched ALL of it. Now we are lost.

Very, very good show. Amazing stories. Very good acting. Great drama. Breathtaking scenery. Fast moving. Cleverly done. Must watch.

Highly recommended.

This is per my Garmin MARQ Explorer, which I wear 24×7.

It was ’46’ two-weeks earlier!

Yes, I am walking and using an indoor cycle like ‘crazy’ to get back to ‘fitness’.

I had my quadriceps tendon repair surgery,
at ‘
Frisbie Memorial Hospital‘ —
performed by Dr. Charles Blitzer
of ‘Seacoast Orthopedics
on Thursday, March 7, 2019.

There was no pain to talk about
— throughout, from surgery to now.

Well, I am NOT taking this too seriously. I could still keel over and die from a heart attack today. So, I am more sanguine than others (and yes, there was a ‘pun’ in there).

Well, I had to share. But, moving on ….
