New on DVD:
The Killing: Season One

It would be wonderful to say that The Killing is the perfect riposte to all this painless butchery seen on the nightly cop procedurals. That finally cable television, in something of a creative slumber after a phenomenal pat few years, has chalked up an honest-to-god masterpiece, a piece of tough poetry which puts the broadcast networks to shame. That isn’t quite the case with this show’s first season, and perhaps it’s too much to ask of one collection of 13 episodes. But that doesn’t mean The Killing‘s arrival is not still cause for some quiet celebration…


The Killing: Season One is now available on DVD. You can read my review of this set at PopMatters.
