Sunday, April 10, 2011: The Killing

Sunday, April 10, 2011: <i>The Killing</i>

You've probably seen those posters with that one girl who was barely in SGU and haven't given The Killing a second thought. However, if you're a Stieg Larsson fan you totally should. The show, based on a Danish series, will spend the entire season dealing with the investigation of a girl's murder and the fallout around those connected to the case. However, unlike most ribbon tying murder mysteries, The Killing presents a drab realistic world that is less about justice and more about the way people react to suddenly becoming connected to violence. That basically means parents crying and political intrigue. Plus, you have Mireille Enos (Jordeen from Big Love) playing the lead investigator.

If you're still not convinced this show is worth getting into just think of it this way. Are you the kind of person who often thinks, "Man, Law & Order is just too fast," or "I really wish Twin Peaks didn't have all that wacky supernatural stuff"? If you answered yes then this just might be the show for you.

Catch up on last week's premiere at 8 then watch tonight's episode at 10 on AMC.
