Since The Good Wife and Community are over for the season I was looking to start in on something new, so I decided to check out the AMC crime drama The Killing, and I'm liking it a lot. So far I've watched the two-hour pilot and the episode after that. It's based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen and it's neat because it's spending the whole season (13 episodes) on one murder investigation. I mean, I like me some formulaic murder-of-the-week police procedural as much as the next girl, but this is really interesting as a change of pace and as a way of showing how much the death of one person means to their family and community. (It's also easier for me to follow than The Wire, sorry.) It's set in Seattle and I really like the way they make the city look. It reminds me a little bit of Prime Suspect, including the fact that it stars a tough female detective, though their personalities are really different.

not very spoilery )

Anyway, I recommend this show if you like some intense and gloomy crime drama with interesting characters, including ladies. Are any of you watching, or have you watched the Danish series?
