I liked the slow unraveling of the intricate plot, the twists & red-herrings, the atmosphere & mood, Joel Kinnaman's twitch-perfect performance, the way Mireille Enos fills out a bulky wool sweater, and even the glacial pacing and all. that. rain. (God is in the details ~ Mies)
I'd "set my DVR right now", as many here like to say, if only TWC would let me do it more than a week in advance. Looking forward to it, and will be happy to discuss the plot intricacies on these very pages with the other 3 members who didn't get their panties all wadded up by the non-resolution and who also plan to watch S-2. Fill free to bogart our knowledge. When we finally find out....um, what was the big mystery again?....oh yeah, who killed Rosie, ya'll will be the 700,000th to know.
Agree, I very much enjoyed the atmospheric and serialistic nature of the show and am looking very forward to Season 2. I don't quite understand the amount of negative emotion over not revealing the killer in the Season 1 finale, but then again, so many viewers want everything all tied up neatly in a bow.
I think that is the outrage, some folks need a clean ending and that's also why so many things are spelled out in black and white. When in reality, it the shows with shades of grey (characters with flaws) that are most compelling.
My issue with the finale was not the non-reveal but the non-sensical turn of Holden, which contrasted his prior actions. Not sure how/if they can explain that one. The other main issue I had was the whole Darren Richmond/political angle, they never really seemed to fit in and brought down the quality of the show.
But overall, wed efinitely need more shows like "The Killing" IMO, it is the journey not the destination. And it is well done.
