Please renew!!!! This was one of the most compelling and interesting show I have watched in a while, I could not wait until Sunday night and watched all the re-airings during the week. Everytime I watched I would find things I had not noticed before. Please renew!

People really need to chill about the season 1 finale and the fact that one case has taken up two seasons. First of all, I liked the fact that it took so long to find who killed Rosie Larsen because as a result we could not only go into more details regarding her death, but her LIFE. Other crime shows with a different case every other episode you are given the cold, hard facts about the murder, you’re shown the suspects and the reasons why they are suspects in the first place, you are given a car chase or a riddle from a murderer (or something like that) and then you are given the closing of the case. You never see who the victim was, how they affected the people around them and what that death really does to those who loved the victim. In The Killing, not only do you see the process the lead detectives go through to find the killer, you see how the family moves on from their loss, how hard it really is to watch someone you love be gruesomely murdered and then turned into just another case in the eyes of the public. I’ve had enough of watching people get killed and then being shown families and friends who pick up right where they left off after about two seconds of grief on TV. I want to see their experiences and that’s what’s so amazing about The Killing. If you don’t like it then go back to your little CSI’s and leave us to watch the real shows.

I think it’s ridiculous that people are complaining about the fact that the whole Rosie Larsen case took up two seasons. From the beginning I was expecting that the case would take a lot longer than the short little 60 minute cases you watch on the CSI shows. CSI is a show you watch when you want to be entertained with a quick little storyline that wraps itself up with no loose ends, but in real life murders aren’t solved in a day or two, they can take years to solve and anybody involved in a murder case is affected in a different way and it’s nice to see a show where you can experience the journey of each character as they get over the grief of their loss and focus on bringing justice to the victim. The acting is phenomenal, breathing life into the TV business where all you can find nowadays is Hollywood beauties complaining about their so called problems. The writing was extraordinary and I haven’t found myself guessing this much on any show because the ending wasn’t obvious from the get-go like most other crime shows. I swear if they don’t renew this show I am never watching anything else on AMC and I don’t understand how people could be so upset about season 1’s finale. I LOVE THIS SHOW AND IT NEEDS TO COME BACK.
