    I hate reading movies.
    It just takes it away from the relaxation.
    If I want a book I will read one.

    wait; I defend this. Actors deserve credit it any role, if it is not read aloud, in English, then I am not focusing on the face.

    I agree it's not the ideal way to watch a show or movie, but we still enjoyed the captioned Dragon Tatoo trilogy. Just us tho, everyone's different.

    As for The Killing, the captioned, Danish "Series 3" does pretty well in the UK (see below). That's not to say if the American version was available, it wouldn't do better there.

    Bumping this old topic.

    Season three starts June 2nd. On my 722 the existing timer did not pick up the new season. Not sure why. I created a new timer and it seems to work.

    Still haven't watched any of this yet. One of these days....

    I sometimes prefer long burn time story lines but this show is on it's last legs and was lucky to be renewed from what I've read. I love this show, I don't now why it has so little fanfare...

    The Mrs. and I just re-watched the last Rosie Larsen episode, which aired this morning. Wow! I forgot how emotionally draining it was. A great finale, IMHO.

    Quite an ending. Should be interesting to see how the writers continue he story if the show gets renewed.

    Can't say I found it satisfying. In some ways, maybe. But it left me not even believing it was really over until I looked at the progress bar and saw it was 1:58.

    Wow! It was a plot twist beyond anything I could have imagined! And there I was admiring how the writers let us see how all the secondary characters were dealing with the outcome of the season story arc, something that rarely happens on TV. Only it wasn't the outcome of the story arc yet.

    And while the ending does take care of the primary story arc's villain, it ends up being a cliff-hanger, of sorts, anyway.

    Because this was different from the Danish version series 2, I have no idea what they could do if the show is picked up for another season.

    By the way, Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman, and Elias Koteas all gave amazing performances in this last episode IMHO.

    I hated the ending, but only because I like to see things all tide up. On the other hand it gives me hope for a third season.

    Ditto. I feel like I was "fooled twice", though not nearly as bad this second time as the end of season one.

    That said, I agree with Phrelin. Great acting all around.

    I really don't think that this season was as good as the first two with Rosie Larsen. There were two stories going on. One with the street kids and the other one with the death penalty and both of them were pretty awful in my opinion. The show should had stopped after season 2. Now, it's a hipster cop show. I had to deleted it off my dvr, but it was a waste of time. I just didn't liked this season at all.
