I’m okay with having eight different conversations going at once and spanning numerous months. No rush. As for diversifying our portfolio… I’ve never seen The Killing. Should I?
YAAAAAAAAS…well I think so.
I LOVE the way it’s filmed, I’m a sucker for that slow, moody, and lingering visual thing it has going. I was tasked with figuring out my favorite recent show and I came up with The Killing– the cinematic experience tips it over any others cause film is my first love…
And I love how emotion (grief, in this case, esp s1) is like a character unto itself, while the main characters are revealed more deeply in pieces slowly within the fabric of the narrative, plus of course the murder mystery and phenom acting and did I mention the cinematography lol and how continuity actually matters and everything ties together and the ACTING yaaaasss, there’s a lot of reliance on acting as opposed to narration of complicated emotions (can you tell I’ve been starved—I know TVD is a whole nother type of thing and all, but DAMN it’s gotten HORRIBLE with that…well, besides when it’s not telling you definitively how people feel at all—how does it manage both at the same time? people talk talk talking or working that ambiguous thing like it’s going out of style…and either way it’s contrived and meaningless or just boring as all get out)
This is quite the recommendation :)
A slower pace and subtlety is never a bad thing, in my opinion, as long as the plot and/or characters have got me hooked, and I like cinematography and love continuity.
So I’ll definitely give this show a shot. Probably not until sometime after May though (I have an important test I desperately need to pass). I’ll let you know when I start.

We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore
Of how we turned the tides of war
We are your overlords
