8 Things Only Fans of The Killing will Understand
Oh yeah. I totally watch Netflix's The Killing . It’s undoubtedly the greatest show of the decade. Of course I don’t have to sit here and prove that to any of you with a list or anything but my employer has assigned me to cover this listicle. I said I'd do it BUT I'm also a huge fan with a lot to say about this absolutley wonderful show. So let's dive right in!
1. The chemistry between the characters. No other show has had quite a dynamic between cast members like this one. All original characters with their own motives reacting to other characters with their own motives. Just like real Life! Fans remember the dialogue and even have their own favorite lines.
2. How we felt when a season ended. Unlike other popular shows like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad or Orange is the new Black, The Killing is designed to binge watch. No other fan of any other show knows what it’s like to start on episode 1 and end on episode 20 in the same day. There’s at least 20 episodes of the killing out there right? I mean, I’ve seen them all of course. I just don’t have time to fact check is all. So just like that we were introduced to this magnificent world and we were left wanting more as quickly as it came.
3. Plot Progression. Fans were glued to their seat as a plot developed. The way this show has a narrative and continues to progress the story through episodic chapters was very intriguing. Yep, really great how they pulled that off.
4. Replay Value! We can watch this show multiple times. That’s why we’re fans. I mean, It's my job to write about it so of course I watched it multiple times for research purposes. That's why this article is riddled with winks to the fans ;)
5. That one character we all don’t like and want to die. I don’t have to say the name of him or her because the fans of The Killing already know what I’m talking about, am I right? All shows have one, and The Killing def has one, i'm sure.
6. The filler episode. The one the casual fan hates but the real fans, like me, loved. It brought more of an understanding to the world the series took place in. It wasn’t bullshit, just like how I’m not bullshitting.
7. The Community. Us fans have built our own little culture. It’s a cult hit, meaning not a whole lot of people watch it, meaning most of the fans won't even see this list. They’re busy on forums, creating fan theories, art and discussing the depth of the show. Luckily for me most of you reading haven’t watched. I say "lucky for me" because I get to teach and make you interested in the greatest show of all time. Not because you would call me out for a lack of knowledge or anything.
8. The Originality. The show is incredibly unique, you can not use a standard template when writing about this show, no sir. Very Creative.
