    Yeah, me too. I don't think the characters have ever been a weakness on The Killing, though the Larsen family could get a bit annoying from time to time. For me, the Holder character and the general mood of the show are it's two main strengths.

    I have always thought the show's main weakness was all of the red herrings, especially in the first season, where it was almost a red herring of the week. I think they have improved upon that dramatically.

    I'm not sure if I've watched that episode yet, but I'm pretty sure I know who you mean. I'm fine with it as long as it's not a barrage of suspects that are strongly suspected and then cleared (and sometimes disappear from the show) like it was in season one.

    Top of the Lake was similar to The Killing and it avoided this pretty well, in that you kept suspecting people up until the end, but it was only about 5 hours.

    No threads on this show but I just wanted to say that this season has been outstanding. The past weeks episode was probably the best of the series with Mireille Enos performance standing way out in front. The tension level created in the first 30 minutes even though you know her character won't die is a credit to the acting and the writing. Just an incredible episode.

    Maybe spoiler nitpicking, but this thread is for eps 1&2 and you are referencing ep 8. Please spoilerize what I did (even though it may be obvious)...

    Funny how this show went from a chore last season to must see tv this season. The changes they've made have certainly worked for me.

    I think today may be Day 22 without RAIN. They obviously will not film here this summer even for the background shots!
