    The Killing! So excited. :)

  4. david7118 says:

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to have the show “Masters of Illusion” before or after the Penn and Teller show “Fool Us”? Is that too logical for the CW?

    Anyone else finish The Killing yet? I am extremely ready to discuss!

    • Suez says:

      How did you finish The Killing? So jealous.

    • Marc says:

      The last six minutes was EVERYTHING!

      • Annie says:

        YES! I actually squealed. Had no idea how much I really wanted *that* ending in particular until I saw it. Overall, the episodes were a little rough in patches but still amazing. The main problem was the writing – the actual plot, I mean, not the dialogue which was fabulous (happy to see Holder able to curse like you *know* he does). Overall I’d give it a solid B+ and am very sad it’s over – but that ending? Definitely an A+, LOL.

    • Marlon says:

      Just finished!
      Just wonderful. I loved everything in these six episodes.
