Fortitude - which you gotta have in the Arctic

Coming soon to a tv near you...

Look interesting? Yeah, I think so too.

I'm quite keen because where we live is usually so hot. Yes, it's true we are currently experiencing some quite chilly weather (16 C today) but it will be hot again soon enough. We'll be sweating by March and turning on the AC and complaining by April.

So watching something set in a place where one HAS to wear big bulky sweaters (set in the Arctic this is filmed in Iceland), well, it will be good. Not only to counteract the hot dry desert environment we live in but also to serve as a warning. We mustn't look back on ice and snow with too much fondness and nostalgia.

There is horror in winter.
