Default THE KILLING returns

excerpt from imdb page:
Quote:
If you’re going to watch season 2 of The Killing – and based on tonight’s premiere I recommend you should - you just have to say “All is forgiven” about the season 1 finale, which pointedly did not tell us who killed Rosie Larsen. You will not find out tonight either, or for a long time to come; the producers have promised to reveal the killer late in the season. So relax and enjoy what The Killing does best: engage us, even more deeply this season, in Det. Sarah Linden’s (the powerfully restrained Mireille Enos) personal obsessions and fraught relationship with her adolescent son, Jack. Here's a question (no answer below, just the question) you will have answered tonight: Why did Councilman Richmond (Billy Campbell), not charged with the killing after all, show up at his girlfriend/campaign manager’s house soaking wet on the night of Rosie’s murder?
i'm thinking i have to check it out. i so much liked the style and look of this show... dark and dreary yet refreshing with characters who act like real people and not "politically correct" police officers and such. yeah, i'm talking to you law and order, csi and the like

It had just about one of the best pilots I've ever seen, and carried that somewhat for the next episode or so. I agree about the style. But it lost its style - and its substance - as the season went on.

Ultimately there's just no reason for this plot to be more than a 2 or 3 show mini-series. I can't imagine how they'll drag it out another season. The curiosity might get me and I'll probably tune in tonight.

I cannot put into words how awful the first season finale was. It was a totally illogical and infuriating betrayal of the viewer.

Being a glutton for punishment, I will probably watch a couple of episodes of the second season if only out of morbid curiosity.

I've invested too much time into this show to quit now. But it does piss me off that they promised to reveal the killer in last year's finale.

Lying bastards...

Look, at the very least I hope one of them finally buys an umbrella.

If you enjoy your television full of red herrings, dead ends and pure frustration, then this show is for you.

Well, the premiere was sort of like last year. Nice style, nice feel, quality production; at times just beyond terrible writing; great acting by the two leads (Holder & Linden) with brutal acting by everyone else.

I already promised myself I wouldn't watch this season and I tuned in for the premiere, so I will make no further promises. I'll probably keep watching as long as its on before Mad Men.
