are you asking me out newbaby?

YABU. The American version pisses off next week after they show the "feature-length final episode" and it has been far better than all this red or black celebrity big brother nonsense.

I love 'the killing'. Missed the (danish?) original (apparently fantastic) but was surprised how gritty the US version is. Really enjoying it.

I've got both recorded on hard drive to watch. DP into the us one but I missed a couple early on and never caught up.

Might get to watch it now dd1 is back in nursery grin

You are totally unreasonable, OP! The Danish version is the best drama I've ever seen on television.

Oh and there's going to be a new series too, soon!

The original Danish version has been showing every Sunday-Thursday for the past 2 weeks, and another two weeks to go! I am hooked.
Missed the re-run of Spiral 1 tho, on Saturdays, AGAIN! humph.

Tonights episode was AMAZING. The performances were breathtaking.

Gonna watch the Danish version on DVD when this one ends.

So, to surmise YABU!

I keep forgetting to record.

YABU. It's great. If only DH would deal with subtitles we'd watch the Danish one too. Do they actually work out 'who dunnit' next week?!

Moodykat someone has hinted to me that they do but that we might not find out until the second series! Not sure what to make of that. Second series - great! Leaving me waiting - big fat no!

My DH will go mad if it doesn't conclude with an answer! He has the patience of a 2 year old!

I think I've narrowed it down to two people - they would have been I'm v. close contact with her but haven't been investigated. One especially...

The mum's sister (or aunt as it's otherwise known)? That's who I think but DH thinks I'm mental.

Watched the Danish version on DVD earlier this year, very good. We got so sucked in, hardly noticed it was subtitled at all.

I've not seen the US version though, maybe someone can tell me how they compare? Is it worth watching both, how close are the plots?

We are addicted to the Danish one. Watching it on I player and we have great catch up nights over the weekend. The performances ate amazing, particularly Nanna's parents.

Ifancyashandy Sat 10-Sep-11 08:23:07

You been looking at my crib notes Moodycat?! grin

Why did she have Roses school books in her car, hmmm?! But how it happened (if I am we are right), Lord only knows.

Pawsnclaws Sat 10-Sep-11 08:34:00

I loved the original. But the ending was a huge anticlimax. Won't say any more as I dont want to spoil it.

Moodykat Sat 10-Sep-11 08:39:33

Shandy- it's got to be something to do with councillor Richmond still too I reckon. Just not sure how!

picnicbasketcase Sat 10-Sep-11 08:44:40

Watching Danish one at the moment and I'm pretty sure I know whodunit but I'm really enjoying it. I was advised not to bother with the US version because not only was it not as good but also apparently they don't reveal who killed her at the end of the season anyway, in that curious way they do to ensure a second season.

DH saw the thread title over my shoulder and though I'd written it.

Currently watching the original Danish every blummin' night.

Its dark and subtitled and rubbish.
