Unless it comes back and blows it, Homeland is still the best show on tv imo. But I do really like The Killing. The 1st 2 seasons weren't as good as this one has been so far. Much more interesting case than who killed Rosie Larson which the last 2 seasons were about. Holder does a great job of being a grimy detective. Also I'm impressed at his accent since I believe he's Swedish.

First season was pretty decent. I watched the second and it really hit the skids. It was rightfully cancelled after that. Won't even bother trying the third.

Watched most of season 1. Was bored to tears and every episode felt like a tease: "Oh, it is the teacher.... [next episode]lol, jk, it wasn't the teacher, it was this other person.....[next episode]lol, jk....." Once I heard it wasn't wrapping things up at the end of season 1, I was done. The acting and filming was good, and the story seemed intriguing, but it was too much time dedicated to a show without enough pay off.

I really dug the first season. Although even I had to admit it carried on a little long. I loved the idea of having a character painted into a corner, then seeing how they'd write him out of it. The teacher was the prime example. They really made you believe it had to be him. It couldn't possibly be anyone else. Then they'd have to come up with some rediculous means of writing him out of it, like his human trafficking of muslim girls. Just crazy.

I also just like the format. It's basically a CSI episode stretched out over 10 hours or something. Season one really could've stood to lose a few episodes, and certainly didn't need to be stretched into two seasons. The second season was little more than an exercise in fatigue. A case that should've closed out in probably 8 hours got stretched to 20. Ugh.

I said at the time that to me this format should be to do a new case every year. You could even convince me to do a new city, new department, every year. But these two are good, and I don't think it's unimportant that Joel Kinamen is set to be Robocop very soon, and Linden is co-starring in WWZ, the top movie in the box office right during the start of this season. I know the season was picked up by Netflix and was intended to be released as a Netflix only release (a great format for this), but AMC saw the opportunity to have someone split the production cost and fill a Sunday night slot, especially after their western thing started to fall apart, although they seem to have pulled it back together.

I agree that this is a more interesting case. It's allowing them to focus more on the investigators than the Larson family last year. Linden and Holder have a cool dynamic. Sort of a Mulder/Scully thing, but Mulder is a little more recovering drug addict with a hip hop complex. And the street scene with the kids is a much grittier setting, and feels more realistic, not quite as over the top, where it got to pedofile politicians and millionair land developers and evil casino indian tribes.
I could live with a little less of The Green Mile stuff. It's pulling back Linden to elements of the first season, where we got this vague background about her, and now I suppose it's gonna flesh that out, but it sometimes feels so disconnected, and had they cut ties from the previous seasons of the shows, no matter how good this may turn out, it would've been for the best probably.

My only gripe with this show is that if you're one of those people who wants to "figure it out", then nevermind. You may figure it out, but it will be total hunch, because they're not gonna give you the info to genuinely do it. At this stage of this season, it's very possible we haven't seen the killer at all yet.

But it's been a really good watch. My choice at the moment for Sunday nights is to watch Dexter, record this, watch this after Dexter, eliminate the commercials, then maybe stay up to watch the second run or Ray Donavan, which really may not be very good, I'm not positive yet, but it's not striking a chord really at all. And then if I catch True Blood during the week, great, and if not, that's fine too.

I have a Non Spoiler guess as to what's going on with Seward. I put it in white (not a spoiler, just my own guess...but might not want to read it anyway.)

I think Seward is actually protecting his son. Although not sure of details of that murder, but I think the son might have committed the murder and killed his mom. And Seward tried to cover it up by making it look like previous murders that had taken place of a seriel killer. But as it turned out, they pinned Seward for all the murders. So he's "playing" the part of the seriel killer to protect his son. But as you see, now he's becoming conflicted about it.....The real seriel killer is still out there and was never caught in the first place.

Just a guess....

That's a pretty good theory. He seems pretty resigned for a guy who knows he's innocent. He must have some kind of motive. It's weird that his wife doesn't fit the MO of the kids.
