I wasn’t one of the people outraged and angered by the end of the first season of “The Killing” (8 tonight, AMC). I agree that the show sometimes meandered, taking viewers places it didn’t need to go or places that weren’t worth exploring.
But I think it’s OK to not solve murder of Rosie Larson in the typical TV show timetable. And the performances, especially of Mireille Enos as Sarah, Joel Kinnaman as her partner Stephen and Michelle Forbes as grieving mom Mitch, made up for much. I’m all for mistakes when the goal is high quality.
