The Best Episode of The Killing Yet

6 Jun

The Killing has been flawed to say the least. Red herrings ran amok, with a significant majority of the first season spent on a lead that turned out to be the deadest of dead ends, not to mention a bizarre subplot about a mayoral candidate who has little to do with the central mystery. But [...]

The Killing- “I’ll Let You Know When I Get There” Recap

1 Jun

Head over to Culturemob to read my recap of last Sunday’s newest installment of AMC’s The Killing. Despite great acting, good dialogue and ethereal cinematography and music, this show has had a hard time finding its footing.

The Killing Recap- “Stonewalled”

16 May

Head over to Culturemob to read my recap of last night’s new episode of The Killing. Last week I, and many others, complained that the show was too slow and was essentially going in circles every episode.

The Killing- Maybe Not as Great as We All Thought

9 May

Head over to Culturemob to read my latest recap for AMC’s The Killing. What started off as a suprisingly honest take on the murder mystery, has become a monotonous exercise in how not to write a mystery show. Nothing ever seems to happen on this show, where each episode ends with some huge revelation, a [...]

The Killing- “What You Have Left” Recap

4 May

Head over to Culturemob to read the latest in my recaps for AMC’s murder mystery series The Killing.

Fortunately, things picked up quite a bit [...]

The show continues to excel, and the somewhat bizarre subplot involving a mayoral candidate has finally intersected with the mystery of [...]

The Killing, Ep. 4- “A Soundless Echo” Recap

19 Apr

What could have ended up like the now-cancelled Rubicon, instead ended up as another resounding success for AMC, who continue to uphold their pedigree for outstanding TV dramas. Though The Killing is dark and moody, its actually quite fast-paced, and thus, incredibly gripping. Head over to Culturemob to read my recap of last Sunday’s installment, [...]

The Killing- Episode 3 Recap

13 Apr

Head over to Culturemob, to read my recap of last Sunday’s installment of the AMC drama The Killing. The show continues to get better, though I think it’s a bit of an acquired taste (i.e. depressing, dark). Interestingly, Culturemob, like the show, is based in Seattle. Read the recap here.

The Killing Series Premiere Recap

6 Apr

Head over to Culturemob to read my recap of Sunday’s premiere of the new AMC drama, The Killing. It’s based on a popular Danish show about a mystery surrounding a teenage girl’s murder. I previously described it as a realistic and un-stylized version of Twin Peaks. It’s gotten rave reviews and though it’s unlikely to [...]

I Am the Blogging King

31 Mar

My quest for total blogging domination continues. Today I wrote my first piece for the Seattle-based website Culturemob. They’re pretty cool, and they let me write about TV, which is good because it adds variety to my repertoire. Anyways, click here to read my preview of AMC’s new drama series, The Killing, which is based [...]
