    Well that's helpful. How about instead of just disagreeing you expand a little on why exactly you disagree...

    Yeah, whats up with the no HD AMC on directv? This is going to suck for Breaking Bad even more.

    I've been watching this show with close captioning some times because of the mumbling.

    Just watched the most recent ep and I knew I'd come on here to find some discontent. I actually really liked this episode. I do think it would have been a stronger episode if they had maybe made it 90 mins for once and devoted the last half hour to getting back to the Larson murder. That being said, the episode was a pleasure for me. The two lead actors do such interesting, subtle work that seeing them play off each other for the whole hour was pretty compelling stuff. I have no idea where we're going plot wise, but perhaps after this episode for the first time, Linden fully trusts Holder. She also got to, finally, have a real emotional release and maybe start repairing her relationship with her son. Getting this personal business out of the way may allow her and Holder to focus like lasers on the Larson the case. Only two more eps? Hopefully the finale is 2 hrs.

    Oh God I hope not. I don't think that's the format of the original either.

    I'm throwing in the towel if it does. I can't imagine anything more frustrating than having to wait until fucking spring 2012 or some shit to find out who the killer is.

    I will be very disappointed if it does stretch. I really liked the show to start out(hence the thread), but ever since the teacher was cleared it has become more of a task to watch. I can't see myself really caring how it turns out as much, but I might as well keep it up with only two left. I'm surprised it's been 11 episodes, it doesn't feel like 11 eps worth of story and plot.

    I had no idea that Joel Kinnaman was in this show. He's a huge star in Sweden. I worked on a play he did in London last year and he was miraculous. The man's a chameleon, he's so different from role to role. I have no idea how he is in The Killing, but he is such a talented guy that I'm sure he could have a big career in the US. The original Forbrydelsen is soo good. You guys should check it out.

    Yeah, I thought of her when one of the more recent episodes ended with a shot of her looking at video of the councilman greeting Rosie at a campaign event. But, what did she do? Pay off the escort to say that the councilman made threatening remarks to her? That seems far fetched.

    Dear AMC's The Killing: that's it. I'm done with your ass. You have not earned a cliffhanger cuz it took you too many episodes to tell THIS story and you havent apparently even finished IT

    haven't watched the show since the first episode... and i stand by my initial claim that it's a neutered twin peaks... but it's pretty hysterical to watch history repeat itself again. a bunch of people clamoring for a plot resolution that will probably result in the show unravelling.

    Holy crap! That was intense. I wonder if they filmed a different ending in case they didn't get picked up for a second season.

    You people are such a bunch of whiners. Why does everything have to be resolved and tied up with a tiny bow at the end of the season? I really enjoyed this episode. Also, the Twin Peaks comparisons are beyond old and lazy by now. Yes, of course there are similarities between the two series, but this is not a poor man's Twin Peaks, it's a completely different kind of show.

    The article below says that the case will be solved in Season 2 and there will be a new case after that.



    From USA TODAY:

    Producers of AMC's twisty murder mystery The Killing sure knew how to guarantee a second season and if you haven't watched Sunday's finale yet, read no further.

    For those still with us, the finale never answered the central question for viewers: Who killed teenager Rosie Larsen? Instead, it planted four major cliffhangers: Larsen's grief-stricken mother, Mitch (Michelle Forbes), ditched her family; Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman), the hangdog partner of lead detective Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) was revealed to be a bad guy, faking evidence that tied Darren Richmond to the murder; Linden learned of Holder's deceit only after she'd finally boarded a plane to California with her son, ending her job; and in a freeze-frame finish, Belko (Brendan Sexton III), a Larsen employee and family friend, was about to assassinate mayoral candidate Richmond (Billy Campbell), the most recent but, like so many others in this 13-episode season, apparently innocent suspect.
    Left unclear: Who was Holder working for? And who did kill Rosie, after a trove of red herrings didn't pan out?

    "What it does is clearly leaves us with a lot of fascinating questions," says executive producer Veena Sud (Cold Case). "No one is who they seem, and who would know?"

    Some fans will surely be frustrated by the cult hit's lack of closure, but Sud says she always had it in mind. She'd been coy all along about whether the murder would be solved in this first season. "My philosophy was let's not have a formula" that adheres to TV convention. "If we marry ourselves to the idea of having to stop at the end of the season, we're going to fall into the same trap."

    Ditto for the June 5 episode, which brought the plot to a standstill by focusing entirely on the relationship between Linden and Holder, making the former narcotics detective and meth addict and her ostensible replacement a more sympathetic character.

    Forbrydelsen, the Danish series on which The Killing is based, revealed the murderer at the end of its 20-episode first season: Vagn, a family friend who was the parallel of Belko. But the American ending was deliberately changed so viewers couldn't predict the outcome.

    Sud says she can't worry about fans' impatience. "The only paradigm I have right now is how we felt as writers, and there was a lot of excitement (with) tons of on-the-edge-of-your-seat moments." They finished writing the season after the show premiered, so she had some idea of prospects for its return, though AMC officially renewed it just last week. And she promises loose ends eventually will be tied:

    "The Rosie Larsen case in Season 2 will in fact be solved, and there will be a new case."

    She won't say how quickly, or which cast members will return. But AMC officials say they won't make viewers wait until next spring to find out what happens. They're planning to bring the show back early next year.
