TV – The Killing: A-

killing season1A-

The series tried a “realistic” approach to a murder mystery and for a good while this take worked very favorably. It found a good balance between portraying the personal life of the obsessive detective, the turmoil of the family of the victim, and a political thriller. It had a main cast of interesting, well-acted characters, especially the detective and her partner. Unfortunately, toward the end of the first season, and throughout the second, the investigation went on a bit too long, resulting in some annoying cop-drama cliches. Characters kept revealing more and more ridiculous secrets. It wrapped up the story at the end of the second season with a satisfying, but not terribly interesting resolution.
