Tag: The Killing (14-24 of 24)
As you read this, I am likely standing in the center of the sun. That’s not meant to be poetic. I’m on vacation in my homeland of Texas! But I couldn’t leave without first giving you your weekly helping of TV scoop. In exchange, can someone pick up my mail?
Speaking of mail, send me some! Spoiler requests, casting suggestions for the numerous primetime openings we seem to have, or even your pilot questions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet me @EWSandraG. I’ll check them when I return in two weeks!
Note: Small programming change: Next week, I’ll have a very special Q&A for Weeds fans instead of your regular column. You’ll enjoy it! Promise!
‘TRUE BLOOD’: YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED ROUND 2
Last week, we tackled some of your burning questions. This week, it’s round 2. The countdown to the June 26 premiere of True Blood is on! Here’s some stuff to tide you over.
Hi. I am a HUGE fan of True Blood. I know this season is primarily about Sookie/Eric, but this Bill fan wants to know if the former couple will have any decent scenes together as well? Will Bill be pursuing Sookie or is he too busy with his new power position? — CK
I know you’ve seen the first eight minutes, but the next eight will definitely answer your question about whether Bill cares or not. That said, Bill’s storyline is sometimes very twisted, but mostly just full of twists. READ FULL STORY
There’s gonna be more Killing!
AMC is ordering a second season of its critically acclaimed series
Rain & Murder The Killing.
The first season was about the murder of a teenage girl and was based off a popular Danish series.
The two-hour premiere drew 4.7 million viewers (including encore airings). The show’s ratings have dipped quite a bit since then, now averaging about 2.2 million — still a healthy number for AMC. This marks four out of five AMC dramas to make it to a second season (only Rubicon has been cancelled).
The annual Television Critics Association award nominations are out and several fan favorites like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Killing, Community, Justified and Boardwalk Empire have broken into top categories. The 27th annual critics awards will be presented Aug. 6. Here’s the full list:
Program of the Year
“Boardwalk Empire” (HBO)
“Friday Night Lights” (DirecTV/NBC)
“Game of Thrones” (HBO)
“Parks and Recreation” (NBC) READ FULL STORY
The original Danish television version of The Killing edged out three American dramas — Mad Men, Glee, and Boardwalk Empire — to win the BAFTA award for Best International series. In some of the other major categories honored yesterday, Sherlock was named the Best Drama Series, Steve Coogan (The Trip) won Best Male Performance in a Comedy, and Martin Freeman (Sherlock) won Best Supporting Actor.

'Smallville,' 'Supernatural,' 'Burn Notice,' 'The Killing': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
What a lovely day it is for television news, Roomies!
I’ll keep today’s usually-rambly intro short: You want scoop? Ask! All you have to do is email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Twitter (@EWSandraG), where you will see I’ve already started celebrating Supernatural‘s upcoming Western episode (see below for scoop!). Don’t see yours below? Come back Friday; there’s a good chance it might be there then.
‘SMALLVILLE’: BOOSTER GOLD’S BIG ARRIVAL … AND BIG EGO
Smallville‘s better-than-ever farewell season continues Friday with the appearance of Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle/Jaime Reyes in an episode that will have both fans of the mythology and beloved Clois squealing in delight. As teased in previews, the episode indeed features an iconic phonebooth transformation (but not into the full tights-and-cape). The moment is all you’d hope it to be, but what got this nerd really excited? The steps that were taken toward creating a critical part of mythology: our hero’s name. Also great: Lois’ interactions with Jaime, Clark’s almost child-like reaction to Booster douche (who is actually as frustrating as he his hilarious), and the arrival of clumsy Kent. Take it all in, Smallville fans, because we’re in the homestretch. Luckily, the show’s been making it more than worth the 10-year investment. READ FULL STORY
AMC has already found success in taking viewers inside the unique worlds of a 1960s advertising agency (Mad Men), a dying crystal-meth cooker (Breaking Bad), and a group of survivors battling zombies (The Walking Dead). Now the cable channel has delved into the murder-mystery genre with The Killing (airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET, 9 p.m. CT), which follows the twisty and grim murder investigation of 17-year-old Seattle teen Rosie Larsen. Exec producer Veena Sud had just finished five seasons writing for the CBS’ procedural Cold Case but was instantly drawn to this adaptation of the Danish series Forbrydelsen. “I heard that phrase The Killing and I said ‘I’m in,’” says Sud. “I love how dark and raw that title is, and ditto on the material. It was wonderfully addictive, great storytelling and an awesome female lead.” The same could be said for the American version, which logged AMC’s second-highest premiere ratings ever. EW talked to Sud about The Killing’s central mystery, comparisons to Twin Peaks, and what season 2 would look like. READ FULL STORY
'The Killing' star Mireille Enos on re-inventing the procedural, the 'big clue' in tonight's episode. Plus, will there be a second season?
Just hours after wrapping the first season of the latest addition to AMC’s arsenal of utterly addictive programming, The Killing‘s Mireille Enos was, much like the viewers of the show, on a journey. She was driving for four days from Vancouver to Los Angeles with a 6-month-old in tow.
Luckily, Enos, who plays the show’s fearless lead detective Sarah Linden, took a break from her trek to call up EW and chat about the show that’s remixed the procedural genre.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, I hear you’re on the road for the next four days. That’s incredibly brave with a baby.
Yeah. We’re trying to take our time since we have a 6-month-old daughter who you can probably hear in the background. [Baby coos] We’re not trying to push too hard. We’ll probably get in Monday night.
So were you pregnant while filming the show?
I was pregnant in the pilot. By the end of the pilot, I was 5 months pregnant. My whole 5th month we were shooting. And then I had my daughter, and we started shooting again 2 months later.
You’re kidding me! I had no idea.
I’m lucky that my body wants to be small and Sarah luckily dresses in big baggy sweaters. READ FULL STORY
