Anyone following The Killing on AMC?
The Beloved Spouse and i loved the first two episodes, but it's weakening with us as we start to recognize some of the same old things that prevent us watching TV in the first place. We're giving it another week or two to get back to where it was the first week, or it's done.
Same thing happened with Detroit 182. We're harsh that way.
Thye're starting to feel the need to explain everything, when much was left to the viewer to figure out in the two-hour pilot. The business of the lead detective moving to California, which had looked like it would force some urgency on the investigation, now appears to be a way to impose the same old "spouse who doesn't understand this is a calling not a job" subplot.
We're also wondering why a city the size of Seattle only has two homicide investigators.
I will be disappointed if there's no payoff from her personal problems. The other issue honestly didn't occur to me, although it's true that in reality there would be a team on a case like this.
So far I'm not bothered enough to quit, but I hope it doesn't go on as long as Lost, or even Twin Peaks.
