The Guardian birti á dögunum samantekt yfir bestu þáttaraðir ársins nú þegar það er hálfnað. Ófærð er þar á meðal ásamt þáttaröðum á borð við Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, The Night Manager og Peaky Blinders svo einhverjar séu nefndar.
Í umsögn um Ófærð segir:
A headless torso gets caught in a trawler’s net in Seyðisfjörður, a tiny Icelandic port town, and the troubled and loveable local cops Andri and Henrika face their biggest investigation ever. Then a blizzard sets in and cuts off the whole town. Fantastically claustrophobic Nordic noir, the first Icelandic drama ever picked up by the BBC.
What we said: Trapped certainly shares DNA with its Scandi cousins, but this is not merely a copy. The cut-off thing adds a new intensity – it’s properly claustrophobic. And the beauty is different – it’s more about nature: grand, scooped-out glacial valleys, icy fjords, a volcanic land that is alive and dangerous. Nordic maybe but this is also most definitely, and proudly, Icelandic … seductive, involving, gripping: I am already, thoroughly, trapped.
