Thirteen episodes is somehow too many. plot lines are drawn out at least half a season. Stupid plot points wouldn't even be there or would be resolved so quickly if it were real life. Everything drags on and on- jack not being cared for by linden, her not deciding to leave seattle, if Ahmed is the killer etc, who the killer ended up being was a strong point but by the time I had gotten there, I no longer cared

There are a lot of cop/murder mysteries on TV, but I have to say that this is the best I have seen so far. The fact that it revolves around less fortunate teenagers is cool. Oh and for all you people who are wondering why you are giving your credit card #'s: the free episodes are on a discount right now, but they will cost money if you choose to buy them in the future.

"The Killing" ticked off viewers when it took two seasons to wrap up the Rosie Larsen case, and the third season didn't fare much better. Still, at least their case was solved in just one season this time around.
