TV series-The Killing
« on: June 20, 2011, 05:35:20 PM »

Now that the season's done, what do you think?
My take: depressing and way too drawn out, especially the second to last episode which was all about Detective L's teenage son and her lousy parenting, etc. A whole episode for that?

I think the plot has meandered at times to the point where characters are kept
from saying things that they probably would have said in real life. I wanted to shake
them and say, "Out with it already." For example, the victim's father bought a house
to surprise his wife but he hasn't told her, even when it would have helped their
relationship. Doesn't make sense. I don't like him, or any of the other characters.
They are all too flawed. This does create interest, true, but I am not into "noir."

Another thing that's really bugged me is the photography. I get it that it rains in Seattle.
But the scenes are washed in greenish brown light, and everyone seems to wear dingy
colors. And does anyone else have the urge to grab one of them, give them a bar of soap
and shove them into a hot shower?

So finally the ending: a cliffhanger. Didn't expect that. I've figured from the start that the
junior detective is a slimeball, but what's his motive? If he has an agenda other than just closing the case, how come we haven't seen anything at all to give us a clue he wanted to influence the outcome for the benefit of someone else?
