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?

Currently…

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted what some of my currents are. So I thought why not?

Reading: Gone Girl, yes I’m a bit late. I wanted to read the book before I watched the movie but it worked out the other way around. I enjoyed the movie and am also enjoying the book.

Watching: The Killing on Netflix. This was originally aired on AMC, yet somehow I missed it. It was canceled but thankfully Netflix picked it up. It’s about two detectives trying to solve a homicide with loads of twists and turns along the way.

Gym: Been working on my cardio. I hate cardio, I rather lift but it has to get done. I think part of the reason why I hate it is because I suck at it. I’ve had issues with my knees that interfere with running and other activities. I’m working on building up my stamina & endurance.

Family: Squish is 10 months old and I’m still adjusting. He’s currently teething again and there have been many sleepless nights in our home.
The oldest joined the robotics team after I “encouraged” him to and loves it!! I’m volunteering on the team and am excited to see what they come up with. The current project has to do with recycling.

Music: Currently I’m loving “Riptide” by Vance Joy. It just puts me in a good mood.

Purchased: Well it’s not technically a purchase, it’s a replacement. My headphones broke but luckily I had protection plan on them and today I received my brand new pair of headphones.

Projects: Focusing on this blog and getting back to posting. Also been toying around with the idea of making some vlogs. I did a few years back and am always asked why I stopped. It’s a time issue and time continues to be an issue but I may aim for biweekly maybe. Any suggestions, topics are welcomed.

There’s my currents, what are some of yours? I love hearing what other people are into.

Till next time my lovelies.
