We felt the series has got too fond of itself and almost become a parody. And the final episode recited characters' fates while leaving an unbelievable number of loose ends in the investigation.

No spoilers, but we snorted at the end and we don't see ourselves watching the next series.

As with most TV programmes, Iím afraid that this has completely passed me by.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Just finished watching it, having not looked at any form of media this morning which might have given anything away.

... leaving an unbelievable number of loose ends in the investigation.

But that's what always happens. I've watched every series and there is a 'link' running through with constant reminders of something that happened 2 or more series ago.
Just sad we'll probably have to wait until next year for series 6 :(

I thought it was a drawn out anticlimax.

Usually happens when the BBC " Big Up " one of their programs in the media.

Seems like I am one of the few on here that actually enjoyed the finale and is looking forward to the next series.

I really do think that when it comes to crime drama shows, the standard of recent shows is superb - 'Line of Duty', 'Shetland, ''The Loch'', 'Luther', 'Silent Witness', 'The Tunnel', 'Broadchurch', 'The Bodyguard', 'The Bay', shall I go on?

Best wishes
Simon

All watched avidly apart from 'The Tunnel' and 'Broadchurch' but I added 'Trust me' (yet to see the final episode I recorded last night)

oh yeah, have to add 'Killing Eve' as well, I didn't watch 'Trust Me' spent too much time in hospitals over the last couple of years to want to watch hospital based drama stuff to 'relax', I did hear it was good though.

Best wishes
Simon

I forgot to list 'Killing Eve' which was smashing (new series coming soon).
Sheer morbid fascination made me watch 'Trust Me' as I had an allergic reaction to the anaesthetic during my bypass op and thought they were trying to kill me. They had to keep me heavily sedated and put cotton wool 'boxing gloves' on me as I was lashing out and trying to pull all the wires/tubes off myself. Could have been worse - the bloke in the bed over from me swore blind he was seeing spacemen :laugh:

Well after my brilliant start to 2019, Simon's similar situation, and your horror stories, I'll give that one a miss, then  :no:

I don't watch much TV, but Mrs Bealman has been watching Shetland on Netflix and what I've seen of it looks ok.
