Watchseries; Seattle's chaotic atmosphere effects characters. This series never take the way easy out, screenplay went deep with whole details. There is no disconnect with twists and pilots. On the other hand, acting.. it must be a acting lesson, Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman they gave one of the best performance ever that on TV history. Emotions, noir, reality are masterpiece. And again, Seattle is such a dark city. Plot twist was a unpredictable and perfectly Sophisticated.

The Killing watchseries. I spent two weeks binge-watching this series and after finishing last night, today I re-watched the first 6 episodes. My stomach has been in knots all this time, and frankly, most of the time I felt like I was about to have a heart attack.

That's how intense the show is. Not everything is perfect, and some reviewers point out some 'flaws' but that's a matter of opinion. I personally loved that we see the grieving family so much, and Linden's relationship with her son. Normally in shows the gruesome stuff is hidden, we don't get to feel what it's like to lose someone, to struggle from day to day trying to be the person we want to be. In other shows the focus is on the killer and detective work, and we don't see what a cop's personal life is like when he/she has to deal with the nuances of the job that they chose as their calling. 'The Killing' makes you wonder, who in this world is capable of being a homicide detective? Who wants to do that? If you criticize Linden, try to imagine what it would be like for you. I love how messed up she is, she's been doing it for years, it all must have gotten to her. And Holder, her junkie joke of a partner? That's what he is initially but he slowly becomes a real hero. Both of them are heroes because they care like no one else. They work round the clock to catch the bad guy, and they'd do absolutely anything, and sacrifice everything for the case and their partner. Both are seriously messed up but they 'found' each other and can fix each other - and that's not an easy job. It's beautiful to watch how tight they become in the end.

Well, that's why I wanted to give the show 9 stars - because at the end of season 3 things get crazy, and even though it does make sense throughout season 4, I felt royally cheated until almost the very end. Here you have the good guys with principles go off the rails. They turn on each other and seem like they're gonna lose everything. That wasn't supposed to happen (in my opinion at least). They were supposed to be OK. Now it looks like they didn't have a chance from the start. I hated who Linden and Holder became, and barely managed to get through season 4 because I was seriously expecting them to kill each other, and I couldn't stand the thought.

I love that the show is slow-cooking, but at the same time there's a lot of information coming in from all directions so it's a nail-biting experience. The detectives have such great chemistry that it's insane - and I don't mean they're so into each other. They simply get who the other person is. The acting is brilliant, as is the writing for these two. Most people would spend hours talking on a date and wouldn't find out much about each other, but Linden and Holder need only a sentence each to communicate a thousand words. Their most intimate conversations are about the case, and that's weird but also sweet because this is all they have: this job, and they can only show their true selves in a conversation with another person who knows this job inside out like they do. You get to know them so well through those limited sound bites that you learn to literally read their thoughts. That was the main reason why I was so immersed in the show: I wanted to see how their relationship develops - not a romantic relationship but their relationship as friends who could die for each other if they had to. They will remind you of you in your darkest hours, there is so much to relate to here, no matt

Having watched the Danish original "Forbrydelsen" it was with great anticipation and some apprehension that I finally got to see the American adaption to this outstanding and huge successful drama. I was both surprised and amazed. "The Killing" has managed to maintain the somber and somewhat dark ambiance of the original while still incorporating enough elements to make the current version plausible. Kudos to the cast of this version which has kept the integrity of the original and so far, it looks every bit as good as I could have hoped. Although the plot takes its time to unfold, it's well worth the wait. Soon you will be trying to guess who killed the beautiful High School student and realize that nothing is as it seems, each episode offering a different perspective (and suspect) until the tantalizing conclusion. Get hooked!! ;)

I haven't seen the original Danish version and America has always received flack for their versions of European films or series. I have to say though The Killing US is slow, dreary, and brilliant! The first episode was gut-wrenching and I was sucked in straight away. It is very slow, not much happens in each episode but it allows for the viewer to feel the pain and frustration of the family and the police in finding the culprit. If I had watched the Danish version I cannot say I would feel the same. Obviously the original is always better but I think people are being unfair in slating the US version. A must-see in my opinion.

I am writing this after the first season finale, and I came to this without expecting much and what a shocking pleasant surprise it was and absolute gem of a thriller.

I rarely give a rating of 10, there would always be some part that would be missing and something goes wrong in any department, nothing ever went wrong with this.

The whole first season is one murder case, so you can expect some slow pace, and slow pace doesn't always mean a drag, and "The Killing" is the best example for that, the pace is deliberately set to slow, to let all emotions, settings to sink in, the show gives you very subtle clues and you would swear that know who killed "Rosie Larsen" and think it is your idea, which is most often first proved right then wrong :) The acting, direction, screenplay, music a absolute top notch, a lessen that other crime thrillers (CSI, Criminal Minds, Suspect Behavior et. al.) should take a note of this epic of a thriller.

If you haven't watch it yet you are missing an epic.

Stunning, brilliant, searing and unending emotional commitment from stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman. Kinnaman has gone on to a little project called Suicide Squad and is leading man material - I like that he is a unorthodox hero that's been dragged thru the gutter, an ex-junkie with a heart of a lion. Enos is the surprise here. Feral, caustic work and she is often unlikable and yet you love her for her humanity. The series has tough police work and tough cases that are unflinching and, at times, stomach churning. Excellent supporting work from Billy Campbell (career best) and Brent Sexton and Michelle Forbes' scenes - particularly early on is literally the best thing you will ever see on television. She and he both deserve Emmys.

The best season is Season 4 and it is heartbreaking and breathtaking at the same time. I will not spoil the ending, but I will say this. I was sobbing as it came to an end hoping and wishing it would not conclude with such adroit and dry-eyed heaviness and I was rewarded. I cheered thru my tears. I cheered for my television. I cheered for writers that found humor and home and love in this mess of a show and that's why I am rating it 10 Stars! The Killing wears it's heart on it's sleeve and beats you senseless and - at the end - gives you the one emotion that truly matters. Watch and you'll know what I mean.
