The Killing

by

Have you watched The Killing? It was one of AMC’s quiet powerhouse shows last year sometime and I missed it. It looked just like everything else. I think I wound up watching The Glades instead. Totally different.

Recently I read up on The Killing and found that it stars a Broadway baby, Mireille Enos. I’ve seen her in a couple of brilliant performances on stage so I was interested in this. It’s very dark, both in subject matter and in look. Since it’s about a murder in Seattle that’s to be expected, I suppose. I find that the whole show gets bogged down in an extremely earnest, rainy day pace every couple of episodes. If you can wait that out, though, it’s good intrigue and beautifully nuanced work by Enos.

First season on Netflix Streaming. Second season in progress on AMC now.
