Is anyone else watching The Killing? It's and AMC show, and it's really amazing. Very gritty, very real - very haunting. Just curious.

The American remake? I haven't see that but the Danish original is just amazing. Incredibly twisty but still very humane about characters.

The American remake is amazing - which is in itself amazing. I just stayed up all night and watched the first season. The characters look and act like real people, and the twists and humanity is all there!

I am! I was so happy that they decided to give it another chance after low ratings in season two. The relationship between Linden and Holder is my favorite. Such a good show!

Bad ratings? NO!! I am the kiss of death for television shows. Yeah - Linden and Holder are terrific together. I'm watching third season with my oldest daughter, and getting ready to watch second season. I haven't liked a show - any tv show - like this since forever. Buffy and Angel are way above all competition - I speak of more recent tv.

I haven't been watching that one, no. Perhaps I should.

I am borrowing a Netflix acct - it's really grim and really awesome. May definitely have triggers. It's set up as kind of a crime show but the entire first season deals with one case. The characters are amazingly realistic - kind like what I've learned to expect from the best of BBC. And instead of flash it has layers and twists and depths. It's radically different from any police show I've ever seen - in fact I'm not sure if there is any show to compare it to. As you can see, I am hooked. They even show the family of the girl who was killed - not just glimpses but very real pain. It has real depth.

I am! It's beautifully done. I love how subtle it can be, especially in terms of character interactions.
