The Killing (2011–2014) – TV Series Review
The Review –
The Killing (2011–2014) is an americanized version or adaptation based on the original TV Series The Killing (2007–2012) “Forbrydelsen” (original title). When I started watching The Killing (2011–2014) from the Plot to the ending, I had many thoughts I wanted to express. The Pilot you can see so much potential, yet some things were just not quite there. It’s as if the scriptwriters didn’t have enough content per actor, some direction wasn’t pointed out as well; many things stuck out but the story was interesting. At first I thought, maybe the actors just werent that great but I was wrong on that as the show progressed. Season 1 to the end of Season Two were focused on one case, and in every episode when ya thought you knew what was going on, the plot thickened. The Killing (2011–2014) certainly had a plan and that plan was working, this show kept me glued to the tube checking it out all the way to the ending episodes on the final season.
The cast in The Killing (2011–2014) turned out to be perfect, the stories or scripts were going well but over time you could see this was a writer/direction issue within the show; though the show was great enough that it no longer mattered. I believe what this show was from start to finish was an absolute beautiful show, I loved the suspense, the characters, the stories; and like all good shows they end fast.
