Last season, I quite publicly fell out of love with “The Killing,” and frankly couldn’t stand the show by the time of its non-ending. (Who killed Rosie Larsen? Oh, hell, I don’t know. Boredom?) But it’s kind of a show you love to hate, isn’t it? (Like “Smash,” but that’s another story.) It’s kind of fun to watch Linden and Holder being so bad at their jobs, or wonder why Linden always wears the exact same sweater (one way too heavy, for the record, for any Seattleite to wear — and one that looks permanently damp from the show’s constant car-wash rain), or ponder who this week’s sacrificial suspect (remember that poor English teacher?) will be. I haven’t seen the season premiere — AMC, after sending me a defective DVD of the “Mad Men” premiere, didn’t send anything for “The Killing” — but Willa Paskin over at Salon.com has, and she says it’s no fun at all. She’s probably right, but I’m guessing I might get sucked into the show anyway. What about you — are you going to watch? Or are you done with Scully and Mulder, oops I mean Linden and Holder, forever? Do tell.
