Review: The Killing

Hello cupcakes. In my last post I mentioned I stumbled across a tv series called The Killing and was really enjoying it. Well I’m done watching the series and decided to do a review.

The Killing originally aired on AMC in April of 2011 (how I didn’t know about it till now is beyond me), and is based off the Danish tv show Forbrydelsen. It’s based in Seattle, Washington and follows homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman). They may not always be on the same page, but the dynamics really works.

One of the things I like most about this show is that it keeps you guessing. The twists and turns work, they’re not just thrown in to be there. Every time the Mr and me thought we knew who was behind something we would be proven wrong. Again these plot twists aren’t just thrown in there to throw you off guard, things line up and lead up to certain things for a reason.

For whatever reason AMC canceled this show not once but twice. Netflix went and picked it up late 2013 and released the fourth and final season in August of 2014. I’ll admit that out of all the season the fourth isn’t my favorite, but it isn’t bad either. I just wish it were different. I was pleased with the ending though, it satisfied all my needs. Overall I definitely recommend you give this series a go whenever you have time. You can catch all four seasons on Netflix. If you do let me know what you think.

What are some of the shows you’re watching now?

Hola December

Hi gals and guys. I’m back, sorta. The past month and a half have been hectic here. Unfortunately my blog has suffered because of it. Things are starting to settle down and school will be finishing up soon. So that means I should be able to get a regular posting schedule going again. In the meantime lets go ahead and welcome the new month.

Hola December, you’ve made your way around pretty quickly. It seems this year went by flying, but then again as I get older it seems times speeds up. Anywho, here are some of my goals and things I’m looking forward to in December.

End of another semester: I can’t say this semester has been bad per say, but it’s getting tougher and tougher. Coming to another end of a semester means I’m one step closer to my overall goal. So yay!!

Christmas: I love Christmas for so many reasons. The best feeling is the one I get when my kids open up their gifts and their faces light up. This year is more special because it’s Squish’s 1st Christmas. He’s only 9 months so he can’t understand but he’s my gift and I’m excited and thankful for the addition to our family.

Holiday Cards: I love snail mail and I love receiving all types of holiday cards from my friends all over the world. Speaking of I need to get going with mailing mine out.

Dana Linn Bailey: As mentioned in a prior post DLB is such an inspiration to me. I just love her, she’s such a positive lady. Well I get to go meet her AND workout with her at her gym!!! I can’t even contain myself.

Gym Time: I’ve been doing ok when it comes to going to the gym, but with school coming to an end I get to go more often.

The Evil Within: I finally picked this game up and can’t wait to play it. Everyone I know whose played it has given it good reviews.

Planning My Trip to California: I’m currently planning a trip to California in January, still trying to work out dates. I’m going to visit my dad, it’s been too long since I’ve last seen him. It’ll just be me and Squish so I’m sad I’ll be leaving the other kiddos and the Mr behind but they can’t miss school. I’ll be in the SoCal, LA area so any suggestions for things to see, do, and places to eat are welcomed.

There’s so much more going on in December but I just can’t think of everything now. My brain is a bit fried from all the studying.

What are some of the things you’re looking forward to in December?
