I'm still reeling from the final episode of the first series of The
Killing. I know this was close to the hearts of manyrats some years ago
and thank goodness I skipped those threads because I didn't have a
televisual device. Not only do I now have one (how different they are
from the last one I had!) but I have Netflix too, and time on my hands, so…

One day before too long I'm going to have to watch it all again because
it's so densely packed with detail I'm sure I missed a lot. Not before
I've paused to get my breath back.

I think I nailed the perp quite early, or maybe I just wanted that to be
the case. The moment when Lund realises she's confronting the perp and
the perp realises that she knows is stunning, one of the best TV moments
ever. Sometime in the small hours of this morning I was lying awake when
the whole Faust thing came together in my head. Sheer brilliance IMHO.

Still too many unanswered questions though. Why the deal with Lund over
dropping the link to Mette Hauge? What are the police covering up? Do we
learn in series 2? Is series 2 going to be an anticlimax after series 1?
In the early episodes I had some trouble distinguishing between Lund and
Pernille. Am I wrong in realising after the final climax that this was
deliberate?

I see a lot of myself in Lund. Don't know if this is a good thing or a
bad thing.

I want a Lund sweater. The chocolate-brown one with the white pattern,
not the white one with the black pattern. If I ask her nicely will her
mum knit me one? Or is there something I don't want to know right now
about Lund's mum?

I wish I could comment, but the water has now reached the estuary,
dropped its silt in the reeds and diluted in the sea to homeopathic
standards by now.

Er..I'm guessing here but are you saying it is so long ago? Is it the
one where the girl went to the off-shore casino and a body was then
found? I very vaguely recall that, but no more.

Glad you enjoyed it, MOPMOB. Like others, I've forgotten a good deal of
the detail, so I can't answer your questions (and sadly, Sara Lund never
took me home to meet her mum) but I do remember how good it was. And
I'm sure you'll appreciate this little nugget: the actor who plays Vagn
is called Nikolaj Kopernikus.

I remember Series 2 also being terrific, and Series 3 not quite so
brilliant but still very well worth seeing.

May I also recommend The Bridge? Just as good, IMO, with an utterly
fantastic protagonist in Saga Noren, Malmo County Police.

Like Sid, I thought it was terrific but it was so long ago I can't remember
the detail. If it isn't too late, I very highly recommend I Know Who You
Are. Not Scandi but Spanish with sub-titles.

You may indeed Sid, but it's not on Netflix unfortunately.

On a vaguely related (to Netflix) topic, I have a Fire Stick and one
thing it does which I really appreciate is allow me to watch a "live"
BBC program from the start, even if it has been running for while.(1)

Noticing the other day that an episode of dear old Quincy had been on
for about 20 mins, I thought I would see if the ITV Hub was as obliging
as BBC iPlayer, so I pointed the Fire Stick at ITV 4. "Watch live" was
on of the options, but it was not Quincy but some entirely different
program. I switched back to Freeview to confirm that Quincy was
showing. It was. Back to Fire Stick and found ITV 4 was on an ad break
so flipped back to Freeview again and found Quincy was also having an ad
break - but a completely different advert!

How can they call is "Live TV" when it isn't. (If you accept that what
you see when you select any Freeview channel is "Live TV".)

(1) This is particuarly useful in the evening when I have fed the dogs
and taken them out to pee and consequently missed the first 10 mins or
so of Eggheads.

You should take them out for longer and they you can miss all of it !

To a degree I agree with you! I put up with JV (1) because I think
venting my despair at how ignorant so many of the challengers are is
good for my soul and knowing the answers to lots of the questions makes
ME the smug smartarse!

(1) As I do with Pantless Parsons if the team members are worth it.

I get that feeling from answering FAR more ?s on UC these days than I
used to years ago. Shows what reading does for you....

And I got one of the connections on OC tonight !

I watched OC with Ma last week. Only about the second time I've ever
seen it. I did manage quite a few, but was also completely baffled by
some of the more wacky connections.

Speaking of Monday comedies on R4 at 6.30, I caught a Tuesday one last
night as the bank holiday changed my babysitting gig and after it I
tend to not listen to JAM as dislike Parsons, but there was a new
programme I'd not heard before last night and it was odd but I think I
liked it.
