The Killing, on AMC, is probably the most realistic seeming murder mystery I've ever seen.
It reminded me a lot of Prime Suspect. What was really amazing about it, was it showed the reactions of the victim's family in a totally believable way.
And shows how shallow most crime shows are, when they use the victim as basically a MacGuffin in service to the plot.
Though.... because it shows the grief so realistically, it might be hard to take on a week to week basis.
It's set in Seattle, and the constant rain and dreariness made me turn up the heat in my living room. After the show was over, I had to turn down the heat.
I loved the underplaying of the acting, (by the way, Michelle Forbes is a great actress) and the mostly lack of stereotypes. Good, good show.
(Had the wrong title --it's The Killing, not the Killers. Corrected.)
