Killing, a Netflix series, has just made its complete and final
season of the show onto disc and boy is it great. Good acting, solid
cinematography and production value up there with HBO's True
Detective. The show stars the new Robocop himself (whose been on
the show before landing that role), Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos;
and is developed by Veena Sud. Set in Seattle, Washington, the
series follows the various murder investigations by homicide
detectives Sarah Linden (Enos) and Stephen Holder (Kinnaman, a star
still trying to break out).
this season, Sarah and Stephen handle the fallout of their actions
from the previous season while investigating the murder of a family
whose only survivor is a member of an all-boys military academy. The
show began with buzz and has continued to be one of the first
original series to put Netflix on the map with House of Cards
(see more on both elsewhere on this site) taking the intelligence of
the audience seriously for a change.
six episode season spans two discs and features the episodes Blood In
The Water, Unraveling, The Good Soldier, Dream Baby Dream, Truth
Asunder, and the final episode entitled Eden.
in standard definition with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of
1.78:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track. The show lacks the
detail it would have on Blu-ray, but still looks fine for the format.
No extras, but catch the show, especially from the beginning.
