5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Hooked!, 20 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Killing - Series 1 [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I see myself as a new breed of "selective" television viewer. By this, I mean that I only watch programmes that I have recorded, downloaded or purchased. I understand that "The Wire" was one for the first shows that gained a following in the U.K. by virtue of Amazon sales rather than television viewing. Four series of "The Wire" viewed twice over a period of 6 months, followed by "Breaking Bad" and "Mad Men" was turning me into some kind of t.v. addict. Just when I thought that I was going to get withrawal symptoms, somebody bought me "Deadwood" and all was well again. Suddenly, "Deadwood" was over and I was soon chewing the carpet, waiting for next fix.
I hadn't picked up on "The Killing" at first, but thankfully, iPlayer enabled me to catch up. Both my wife and I thought that we could eke it out gently, but we soon resorted to "Go on, just one more episode!" Now we are up to date and have to wait a whole week for our two-hour fix.
One murder - twenty episodes. I know that with this format, we are going to be manipulated with many red herrings and blind alleys, but bring it on! This really is a great, great show. The casting and acting is so superb, that one doesn't realise that one is reading sub-titles. Every character is wonderfully realised. However Sarah Lund is not only drop-dead gorgeous, but absolutely believable and totally cool. I rate her as the best female cop ever.
This is one box-set that will be going straight in to my collection, when it comes out.

I agree wholeheartedly with everything in your review, esp Sarah Lund, I love her!! Also came across this by accident and thank heavens for i-player, this series makes the whole principle worthwhile.
