    The Killing

    Anybody else checking this out? I figured I'd give it a shot since AMC has a good track record and I haven't had a Sunday night show since The Walking Dead ended. Pretty interesting and heavy so far.

    I recorded it but haven't had a chance to watch it yet. I've enjoyed AMC series in the past.

    The Killing....,I think I can get into it. When the cop smoked a joint with those teenage girls and then asked them to party, I got a real creeper vibe. I know he was trying to get information, but holy hell was that scene weird.

    Oh yea, that guy is a big creep.

    I'm also interested to see how the councilman's mayor campaign connects to all this and what the hell the deal with his wife is.

    Re: The Killing

    Considering how much was covered in the 2 hour pilot, I wonder how much more is in store. Hopefully they don't half-*** it.

    Considering it took them the whole 1st hour to even find the body, I don't think they're in any hurry to reveal all their cards. There are LOTS of loose ends brought up in the pilot alone, and I'd imagine it will get murkier before it gets clearer.

    I meant to watch this. Is it worth while for me to catch a rerun of this? Does it have staying power as a show?

    Yeah definitely. Pretty powerful drama. A bit slow to start off but over the course of the show it started to get very intriguing. Give it a shot.

    Yes, well worth checking out. I don't really like crime procedurals, because I think they can be a little predictable, but the idea of a really complicated season-long mystery has a lot more appeal. Plus, it's AMC so I think ratings would have to be really abysmal to pull the plug before they at least wrap up the 1st season murder.

    Re: The Killing

    I watched the show and I enjoyed it. It has a lot of potential.

    I don't watch AMC too often, so I didn't know about the show until yesterday. I started reading about it online and it's based on a Danish show. I believe every episode is suppose to cover roughly 1 day. I just wonder if the each season will be a different case.

    Re: The Killing

    Is this the show about the advertising agency that cooks the crystal meth that creates zombies?

    yep, that's the one :p.

    I was late to the party on the ad agency and meth, so I wanted to catch the beginning of this one if it took off. Glad I did, looks to be a good ride.

    Honestly I love Breaking Bad, I just don't know if I can get up for this show. Just seems too depressing to me.

    Re: The Killing

    Yea, it isn't real upbeat. I'd imagine the subject matter would be tough to swallow if you had kids as well.

    I've heard good things about Breaking Bad. I wish AMC was on board with Netflix streaming, because I would be checking their other shows out if I didn't have to wait for a DVD every 3 episodes.
