Watched MM last night for the first time in a season or so, and it was good. Was a jag really just $5600 in the '60s? I know it wasn't much compared to today's inflated standards, but $5600?!
Although we also bumped into "the Pitch" show afterwards. Like that very much.

I'm still watching "The Killing," but it ain't the same show. Too many conspiracies, too much crap happening to the detectives on the case, and it strains credulity at this point. A police detective gets beaten half to death on the reservation by hoodlums working for the casino owner, can identify his assailants and... nothing happens????? This story would be the lead on the nightly local news every night. What happened to the writers?

Stan's story with him barely holding things together has been good too. When that sympathetic lady was talking to him only to hit him up for cash...that was a gutpunch. But Mitch on the road is distracting. All the stuff with her sister/the poilsh mobster appears to have been a bunch of busy work/red herrings. That's the problem with stretching the mystery...they have had to keep tossing us off the scent and now it's overly convoluted whereas the first season was just wonderfully simple. I want them to solve this case and see if they can take the existing characters and make it a great show again. I think it's entirely possible but they have to pare things down and do what works best.

Yeah, I'm still in too. Last few episodes before last nights were really prolonging things but now that Linden found the key card and it's pointing to the mayor -geez, anybody else they can connect the dots to? I'm starting to think we won't (AGAIN) find out by end of season who the Killer is. But at the same time that's the draw for me. I enjoy the character studies too even though some of them irritate me (Mitch). It's the one show I look forward to each week. Still

Oh you managed to focus my frustration really well.
But until they do the ScoobyDoo gang pulling the mask off, i am not falling for any of the obvious clues.

I am an addict with shows on AMC. For whatever reason, I still haven't latched onto Mad Men and I haven't checked out the Pitch.
I love Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and The Killing.
I know The Killing has gone in many directions but I can tell you that it is odd living near reservations. It also reminds me of that one movie with Val Kilmer where he and that other cop go on that reservation in one of the Dakota's to solve a murder.

Yes...I believe we can allow that.
