Amy Seimetz almost didn't get her role on AMC's "The Killing." Network executives initially dismissed the indie actress ("Upstream Color") and filmmaker ("Sun Don't Shine") as too "cute and sweet" for the part of hot mess single mom Danette, whose teenage daughter goes missing in tonight's Season 3 premiere."I'm from Florida, and I'm pretty scrappy," Seimetz explains. "The idea of -- at 31 -- being called too cute and sweet made me really angry." So she fought back and ultimately won the gig with the help of a self-made audition video that didn't even feature sound ("That's when I realized that my iPad microphone was broken," she laughs).Maybe that sweetness was a lingering trace of her role as a love interest on HBO's Christopher Guest comedy "Family Tree," which she wrapped right before landing "The Killing" and coincidentally also airs on Sunday nights. Seimetz's "Tree" arc starts June 23, and she says anyone who tunes... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/06/the-killing-season-3-amy-seimetz-talks-joining-the-cast-for-a-new-mystery-and-the-shows-slow-burn-st.html

The Killing is coming back from the dead this Sunday (June 2nd), and I for one, couldn’t be happier. AMC dropped the ax on Holder and Linden shortly after season two ended, but thanks to a helping hand from Netflix and lower licensing fees, the network uncancelled the modern noir series. It’s no secret that the series takes its share of hits from the press, but as long as you like your mysteries pitch black, your detectives a little rough around the edges and your visual palette full of rainy skies, you are in good (and moody) hands with The Killing.

When Rosie Larsen's murderer was not revealed in The Killing 's Season 1 finale, heads across America exploded. It was the most disparaged creative decision since Lost 's purgatory series ender. Still, executive producer Veena Sud believed her gritty crime drama would survive the backlash. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Killing-Season-New-1066171.aspx?rss=breakingnews
Have there ever been a pair of TV cops quite like The Killing 's Linden and Holder? Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) is a committed loner haunted by, we learn near the end of season two, an eerily familiar prior murder investigation which in turn echoes a nightmarish childhood trauma. In the course of investigating the Rosie Larson murder, Linden loses her grip, successively, on her fiancée, her son, her mental equilibrium and finally her own freedom. In fact the ninth episode of season two, when a trapped and drugged-up Linden submits involuntarily to therapy and comes perilously close to sliding down into the rabbit hole, is as chilling and mesmerizing an hour of television that I can recall.
