New TV Obsession: The Killing

I don't watch that many shows on TV, but the ones I watch I watch religiously. I may dabble in Grey's Anatomy, if only to remind myself what a train wreck that show can be. (That musical episode may have cured me of any lingering interest, however.) And we watch Modern Family, but only if we DVR it and can skip all of the commercials.

But there are a few shows that I have become completely obsessed with. Back when we had premium cable, I loved Weeds and The Sopranos. Now, I am in love with Mad MedThe Walking Dead and Justified. Last week when I heard the news that my absolute favorite TV show, Mad Med, is delayed until next year, I was truly distraught. Seriously -  I need to know what happens with Don and Megan!

Luckily, I have found a new series to fill my TV cravings. The Killing (AMC, 9PM on Sundays) is dark, grim and twisted, both in plot and spirit. . Dave and I watched the pilot on Sunday and I have been itching to see the next episode ever since. If you need a new show, check this one out. It's a winner.

Don't just take it from me...Here is a review by David Bianculli on NPR last week.

  1. Two things:
    -This show is awesome. A lot like Twin Peaks, if you are familiar with that show.

    -That episode of Grey's Anatomy that Rach made me watch parts of when flipping the channels around kind of made me want to jump off of a bridge. It was REALLY BAD.
