AMC's 'The Killing' ratings get lively start
by James Hibberd
AMC’s The Killing got off to a healthy start Sunday night in the ratings, with the two-hour premiere drawing 2.7 million viewers.
Sure, that’s no The Walking Dead (5.3 million) — but nobody expected the moody crime drama based on a Danish hit to replicate the success of that monster hit. It’s slightly better than the network’s only series misfire Rubicon (2.5 million), thankfully. Combined with its encore airings, The Killing delivered 4.7 million viewers. (Anybody else notice the near-constant use of background noise in The Killing — usually rain? Made the surround-sound-enabled viewing experience of the show super immersive.)
The girlfriend just told me about this show today because she asked me to set a timer on the DVR for Breaking Bad (they're re-airing the entire series before Season 4 begins I guess). We will have to catch the premier before Sunday.

I don't know, this is basically a series based on a single event. Something any other show could've done in one episode. It's slow pacing has its merits, if you can sit through it. The characters are somewhat likable. But I find the show to be really depressing, especially some of the intimate parts they were able to capture. Its almost as if the writers/director behind the show is trying to convey their personal experiences through the show.
The mom is done, and after the last episode she put her man back in his old days kind of mode.
This could be crammed into one episode and I would be questioning certain things left out. One of the reasons I'm still watching. Plus I'm a sucker for a good investigation with more going on than what was expected. After seeing the first two episodes, I expected this series to move slow.
anyone watch the extended preview for next week (may 29)?
i didn't think bennett amhed was the killer since it seemed too obvious too early. stan, belko, and mitch will definitely be in the **** now with stan and belko beating amhed to a pulp, though.
i have a feeling it will come back to some mob stuff involving stan, but considering how this show can change drastically very episode, i'm still not totally sold, nor is their much to support my opinion yet.
great show though.

I'm gonna say it's Gwen, the Counsilman's advisor and plaything. The look on her face during the final minute when she was looking at the picture of Rosie with the Counsilman was kinda creepy.
Or Rosie's mom. I recall during an earlier episodes, the mother was questioned why she didn't call Rosie during the weekend when the parents were away. Any normal parent of a teenager would call their kid when they're away. I found that pretty shady.
