Season 2 is still engaging, but there is a STEEP drop-off ion the quality of the writing.
Season 3 is a bit of a return to form, but the new female detective is incredibly unlikable. I'm still not sure why Wilson never got the screen time she so clearly deserved.
Elba shows just how far dynamism can carry a show. At its peaks, Luther is some of the most compelling viewing available. The show is at its pinnacle when Elba and Ruth Wilson share the screen. In the barren stretches without Wilson, the plot really falters and the writing becomes quite stereotypical of cop-drama murder mysteries. Season 1 is by far the best.
May be the best TV series out there, and not showing any signs of a drop-off. I guess we'll find out in 2016
Season 2 got much sillier, but I'm still decently interested. Season 3 looks like it might be about to aim a little too high for its own good
Overall good-great, but can border on the ridiculous at times
Seasons 1 and 2 are superb. 3 and 4, while a bit plot-thin, are good
A real slow burner if there ever were one, which is positively a compliment. Where most crime dramas cheapen the loss of human life to a series of clue-whoring detective shorts, The Killing takes a long-sighted and unflinching look at the deep emotional toll murder takes on all those in proximity to the deceased. I'm not always a fan of the writing, Linden is hardly likable, and there is a real dearth of happiness; but by and large, Season 1 of The Killing is excellent.
