The show's second season begins on on Sunday, 4/1/12.
Thanks for reminding me to cancel the series on my DVR.
Yay lets waste another 10 hours to not find out who killed Rosie Larsen.
It's suppose to be revealed in the first few episodes. I will be watching.
Exactly what I was going to say.
Another one of those great potential shows that fell flat on its face.
I think I'd rather read it here...
Hopefully those of you who dislike it will find something else to harp on then and just stay out this thread once you've said your peace... i look forward to discussion of the show with those who do watch it and are interested... the rest i would consider a troll...
That would be a perfectly reasonable point of view if you ignored the context: the show had a promising start but tailed off badly and then the producers retooled the narrative awkwardly to facilitate a second season. Given that, the dissatisfaction is a perfectly valid topic of discussion.
This isn't going to the American Idol thread to talk about how singing on television is the end of Western civilization. A genuine reaction to something that we watched isn't trolling. And we can still talk about the end of Season 1, because I'm still trying to make sense of it, right?
This is the season 2 thread!
I'm going to be watching because...I don't know, I guess because I stuck with the entire first season and now I feel compelled to find out what happens next.
But the dismay and scorn being expressed isn't trolling, because it's from people who actually did watch Season 1 and have very good points about how disappointing it was. It was quite spectacular how a show that started off so brightly took such a spectacular turn for the worse over the course of a mere 13 episodes or so.
It was stunning, really, how the show seemed to almost work at getting relentlessly worse every. Single. Week.
So...I'll be watching, and I'll be posting about it here. But I don't fault people who felt they got burned the first time for commenting on it here. The letdown was epic.
I understand the disappointment but I think the time to express that disappointment about the first season has passed. If you are not longer watching, what is the point of flooding this thread with comments about a season that has already passed? Why dwell if you are giving up on the show? If you are no longer investing your time, why continue to comment on it?
There is a thread for the first season and if someone feels compelled to continue to bitch about the letdown, then feel free to do so. However, I still feel this show was pretty good compared to most TV and good enough to tune in to see what happens next. I really didnt think it got that bad. I thought the story was pretty compelling and the pilot of this show might have been among the best I have ever seen.
When I'm watching a show, and I feel that it's getting worse with every episode at some point I find something better to do with my time.
I am another of the crew who won't be watching. Drawn in and then too disappointed to continue. I still remember the third to last episode in the season (I think) which was a standalone episode completely and totally unrelated to the plot. An entire hour of a ten hour first season run dedicated to a useless side plot that did not appear to move any of the characters forward at all. Regardless, it's Season 2 so I will check in late April to see if they revealed who did the killing and after that....you all can have your thread back. LOL
I sure hope Linden makes it to her wedding!
I can't see this thread and not keep wishing it was a discussion of Stanley Kubrick's noir masterpiece The Killing.
Written by Jim Thompson, it has been referenced and copied and used as a blueprint for countless heist films -- scenes and plot devices in The Dark Knight, Heat, Reservoir Dogs, etc. all point back to The Killing.
Season premiere tonight!
I'm a sucker for mysteries, whether movie, tv show, or book. Once I'm in, I gotta find out who dunnit.
As for tonight's double-header; man, the plot sure is thickening.
I'm relieved that Holder isn't the bad guy the last episode hinted at. Why is Linden SO sure about him that she won't even try and draw something out of him?
I so love that movie. I've never been able to decide how I feel about the narration, but it's certainly never kept me from thoroughly enjoying it every time.
Too bad. I thought Belko was one of the more interesting characters and Sexton gave one of the better, maybe the best, performances within the show.
Yes, and why did Richardson not spill the beans at the point of his arrest? Ok, I get keeping the suicide attempt a secret because of the campaign, but to still keep the secret when your campaign is pretty much ruined by the arrest anyways?
I was lost for part of this episode. I forgot a lot from last season. I cannot remember why Balko was locked up?
For whooping the crap outta that teacher I think. I guess Mr. Larson got out on bail.
Yeah I kinda forgot everything too.
I completely forgot about the teacher. I really should have re-watch the first season.
