There’s not much to say about The Killing except that you should watch it.
I’m only on the third episode but I sobbed my eyes out when Rosie Larsen’s parents realize that she’s been murdered. Heart. Breaking. Any show that can make me cry is worth watching.
My favorite part about this show? The people look normal.
The main detective is a female (appreciated here at S&B) who doesn’t wear low cut crisp white button downs and high heels. Who could possibly wear heels while solving crimes? I’m quite positive that Nancy Drew did not and she’s my favorite female detective.
The show is also dark and filled with twists. It feels as if I’m watching a feature film instead of a television show. Harkens back to Along Came a Spider, a movie I thoroughly enjoyed and you probably don’t even remember.
Watch the show. I promise that you won’t regret it. The second season is currently airing on AMC but I prefer to Netflix past seasons to avoid commercial breaks. I’m just that hardcore.
Suggested to me by Netflix because I enjoyed The Walking Dead, Being Human and Damages. Have you seen Damages? Oh, don’t worry. I’ll review that show next week.
