The Killing (Seasons 1-3)

Is anyone watching this? I haven't seen the new season yet, but I decided to go back and check out the first two because I really want to watch the new one once I catch up.

I really like it, though at times it is slow. I really don't care about the councilman/mayoral candidate... I assume he'll be relevant at some point, but right now (I just finished s. 1, ep 11), he feels really ancillary to the main storyline. I also think the show dwells on the family's grief a little more than necessary. There's a lot that feels like filler.

Ironically, the ep I just watched--where Linden and Holder look for Linden's missing son--was more or less totally filler, but I loved it. Linden and Holder are definitely my favorite characters--they're the ones I'm most interested in.

I also like the case--and I'm well aware that it won't get solved until the end of season two, so I'm hoping I won't be as frustrated as those who watched the show when it aired and were (understandably) annoyed that the case wasn't wrapped up at the end of s. 1.

Any other fans of this show out there? Or did the stretching out of the case make you give up? Did anyone come back for season three? I can't wait to see it--the promos make it look really good.
