Really enjoy the Killing and glad it is coming back for season 2, terrible picture quality be damned. It is so much more authentic and generally not dumbed down like so much network TV. It is more on par with something HBO would put out.
But I hope there is no way the politician is dumb enough to forward his dummy Orpheus email account to go to his real email account, which I assume is what we are looking at. He has emails from his assistants Gwen and Jamie in it. That had to be a legitimate email account so I am assuming the real killer set up the forward. It might be one of his assistants.
The "getting mail chime" was a cool TV moment but didn't make much sense unless it was a setup.
I also enjoy Jersey Shore. It is a masterful trainwreck. Only reality shows I watch these days are Survivor, Real World (Challenges), and Jersey Shore. Call it a sociology experiment but well done in their own right.
