The Killing

Let's talk about it.

Why?

Because it's good.

But let's use those spoiler tags, kids.

Are we using spoiler tags for episodes already aired? Or do you mean if someone has seen the original Danish version and wants to speculate based on that?

Really liking this show. It's unsettling in a way a show hasn't made me feel in a long time. I blame the way Rosie died - that was like a gut punch, seeing that image, and it's just been downhill from there.

But in an awesome way!

Episodes that aired...I'm 1 behind.

The show is very moody, gripping......Seattle is a perfect setting. It's fun for me to see if I recognize certain areas, etc.....and, yeah, it's an unsettling show as well.

Perfect!

I like the casting of the male detective lead.
At first he kind of fades into the background.



he seems to have an endless supply of 'cop weed'.

That guy is wonderfully creepy. I think I read he's Swedish or something? Or Danish? Something Scandinaviany.

re spoilers: Gotcha. In that case ....

 
I totally missed that the references to "Bennett" - he wrote the note, and I guess he was supposed to be in that picture in the trophy case that skeevy cop guy saw? I had no idea that "Bennett" was that teacher with dreadlocks. I think he's a red herring. I bet it turns out they didn't have some torrid affair or anything. I'm really bad with names on this show so far. Hence me calling him Skeevy Cop Guy.


Some of the downtown overhead shots are easy to ID as Seattle, but there are some where it's obviously not - any shot where the streets are just lousy with skyscrapers is Vancouver, because our downtown isn't THAT big.

Although I've never had a bird's-eye view, so maybe I'm wrong. There are some shots where I honestly can't tell if it's Vancouver or Seattle.

Oh, also a quick LOL re Seattle in this week's episode:

 
Ha, basketball-loving millionnaire and that stuff about the mayor not wanting to build a new stadium? O HAI, Sonics reference! Man, some Seattlites are still really bitter about that. Some guy showed up at Howard Schultz's book signing at Costco and heckled him about it.

But really, they should have made the reference about an arena, because a) Seattle already has two stadiums; and b) basketball is played in an arena.

I know there is a Swedish? version of this. I have not read anything about it at all.
I just want this to unfold however it is going to go.

I think there are some red-herrings being thrown at us.
I don't think any of the students or teachers are responsible.

While watching the 3rd episode, I got a flash of who I think the killer is, I wont even write it in a spolier, because if I guessed right I don't want to spoil it for someone else.

If the show had taken better advantage of the large Asian population in Seattle, it might have had a chance with Lance.

You'd think the pink hair and Hentai-esque rape video would have sucked him in.
