Season 2 of AMC's version of The Killing starts tomorrow(Sunday 1st April) in the States. Thought I'd start a UK Paced thread, ready for when Channel 4 starts showing it. As the title says- no spoilers allowed, thank you

No confirmed date for when Ch4 are going to start showing it. I've heard April mentioned on some sites. But nothing definite yet. Will update if any news comes to light of course. Last year it ran July to October here in the UK. Let's hope we get it sooner than that.

Regards

BK

Wednesday night is a pretty decent but 10pm? Wasn't the first season always shown at 9pm?

Come on Ch4 get your act together! If you can give Homeland 9pm, you can do the same for The Killing!

Good spot Ninjy.

Double bill for the opening night on 4? Like they did in the US. That would be nice.

Congrats to Ch4 for bringing it early for us(compared to Season 1 that is). It will fill the hole left by the ending of Homeland.

Are you going to watch the Israeli series on which Homeland is based, Hatufim, on Sky Arts? That starts in May. THAT should be a good replacement for Homeland. Wish I could see it.

Morning MT

Yep. Looking forward to Hatufim(you know how I love subbed drama). As you say starts in May, but can't find a confirmed date, so will have to be on the look out for it. Anyone seen any promos on Sky Arts?

The Region 2 DVD is released on 6th August over here. Is that any good for you in Region 1 land???

I have a multi-region DVD player so I can import Hatufim, which I did not realize would be getting a UK DVD release. Thanks for the link.

Also, have you downloaded any of the episodes from the new season of the US Killing, or did you decide to wait for the new season to arrive on Channel 4?

Fringe is on sky1 not CH4

Its confirmed on digiguide 22:00 - 22:55 looks like only 1 showing a week, which is pretty poor.

Glad to be of service

I've held off getting any new eps at US Pace. I'd read Channel 4 might start showing Season 2 April/May time. So was waiting until Homeland had finished. If no confirmed date was available by then would go US Pace.

Bearing in mind the no spoiler rule- how's it doing over on the other side of the Atlantic. Ratings wise I mean. I know the Season 1 cliffhanger had many viewers vowing they would never watch it again. Has the anger subsided now?

The viewers who were still watching The Killing at the Episode 12 mark of Season 1 are still watching. The people who had quit the show before that and just came back for Episode 13 thinking "At least I will find out who killed Rosie," have not come back. Maybe they will tune in for Episode 26, when the killer has been PROMISED to be revealed.

I have seen the English version Season 1. I have also seen the Danish version Season 2.

Does Season 2 of the English version, correspond to Season 2 of the Danish version, or does it finish of the Danish Season 1?

Cheers MT.
That makes sense. Maybe the second half will be so good the deserters will come back? DON'T ANSWER

Season 2 of the US version basically covers the second half of the Danish Season 1.

So:-
Forbrydelsen I=20x55mins eps
AMC The Killing Seasons 1&2= 26x45mins eps(approx of course)

There will be an overlap of 4 weeks between the end of Season 4 of Fringe and the start of Season 2 of The US Killing

Anyhoo once Fringe finishes my Wednesday night viewing will largely consist of Castle at 9 and US Killing at 10

The last two eps(21&22) of Fringe form a double bill. I'm hoping they show them in the US as a feature length ''episode'', and Sky do the same over here.

Linden was on the plane with her son. Going to start her new life. She had just found out that the bridge photo putting Richmond on the bridge when Rosie was killed was a fake. The cameras were not working. So it is some sort of photoshop job. We saw Holder telling someone that the photo worked.(So either Holder is a dirty cop or he is being set up). Belko was just about to shoot Richmond. I think he had killed his Mom as well. Can't remember if they actually showed this on screen. Or whether it was strongly implied? Not sure about that. I will have to check the DVD.

Mitch has left Stan.

Here's Wiki's Season 1 finale recap. If anyone wants to jog their memories.
