Watch: Brutal murder and creepy baby dolls abound in AMC’s “The Killing”

Pin it

AMC's new series, The Killing, follows the investigation of the (I assume, based on the title) murder of Rosie Larsen, a teenage girl living in rainy, appropriately moody Washington. (So, it's a lot like Twin Peaks without the little people speaking backwards.) And from what this first trailer shows, it's got everything you could want: tough lady detectives, drugged up delinquents, possibly corrupt politicians, and Michelle Forbes. (Attention to Hollywood: cast her more!)

Hm. The music's not really grabbing me, and this hit a few obvious notes. And while AMC's record is pretty spotless at the moment, give or take some episodes of The Walking Dead, we've seen a lot of crime procedurals over the years. It won't be an easy task to breathe new life into the genre. I guess if I trust anyone to do it, it's AMC.
