Very obviously talking about the American version here…
I am seriously getting fed up & here’s why.
Last year there were several interviews with cast members as the season was coming to an end. In these interviews they played up constantly that the viewers would not be disappointing and we would be left satisfied with the final product. And then the tune changed and said that “Who Killed Rosie Larsen” would not be revealed until season 2, but not far into the season because they had another case that would need to be solved. And again that changed to by the end of season 2, well guess what….. I am beyond frustrated at this point. I want to know who fucking killed Rosie Larsen since that was the bloody tagline for all of season 1 implying that we would eventually know whodunnit. I am tired of getting the runaround week after week, and to you people that keep saying, “Well in real life, crimes don’t get solved immediately either & I like the reality”…. Well screw you too. There is little ‘reality’ involved in this case, it is discombobulated & all over the board. The storylines have become a tangled web of I don’t give a damn anymore.
!!!Spoiler Alert Ahead!!!
Rosie is not Stan’s daughter. She also apparently hates her parents and wanted to get away from them, maybe becoming an escort herself & befriending the son of a man Stan killed years ago.
Mitch is hiding out in a hotel pretending some runaway is her murdered daughter, sleeping in the same bed (WTF) and completely shunning her responsibilities as a mother to two other kids.
Terri has her hand in something off, between being a
prostitute escort & doing the father of Rosie’s boyfriend who is claimed to have been doing Rosie too, trying to be a mother to the boys, oh yeah and can’t forget waiting for Stan in bed and kissing him, yeah her sister’s still husband.
Richmond is in a wheelchair and seriously pissed off because, oh yeah, he’s been framed by his mayoral opponent.
Gwen left him to go try and be the daddy’s girl she so desperately craves but that won’t work out so she comes waltzing back to help Richmond again. Surprise surprise, he lets her back in… business only though. Uh huh, sure.
Holder, the only character I actually really like is given little this season except being given the treatment of a worthless human being. Being called ‘dirty’ by someone he truly trusted and then initially shunned by Linden for that exact reason. I always feel a little bad for him, his major shining moments are with poor moody, brooding Jack.
Linden gets accused of allowing her emotions to rule. To that I respond, “What emotions?” I’m sorry Mireille Enos, but that character is sooo one dimensional it’s ridiculous.
Bring in the family of a man Stan murdered, an Indian reservation & some bigshots …..
And this season everything gets thrown together in a big jambalaya pot and shaken not stirred. Bring in the mob and hey we’ve got a party. Wait, they’ve done that so everyone’s here, now let’s congo.
All in all, let’s get this show on the road now. You’ve spent more than enough time still working on last season’s objective, “Who Killed Rosie Larsen?” and nothing substantial is coming out of each week’s episodes. Mitch’s storyline is almost stand alone, except for the fact that she is operating on the guilt of letting down her daughter. The custody arrangement for Jack has nothing to do with the story. And quite honestly weirdness abounds.
