Notes and observations

‘The Killing’ tries my patience

I got home late Monday morning, like around 1:15 a.m., from work. After taking care of Café World and FarmVille on Facebook, I settled in to watch the season finale of “The Killing” on AMC.

Let’s face it, we’re all just marking time until “Breaking Bad” comes back, but “The Killing” has been a suitable replacement. Still, like with “The Sopranos,” the season-ender turned out to be a terribly frustrating endeavor for me.

The city councilman who’s running for mayor is the prime suspect in the death of Rosie Larson – or is he? The two detectives (more like defectives) who have been pursuing this case are more at odds with each other, and the revelation that a key piece of evidence against the councilman is fabricated shows that nothing is cut and dried.

As “the Bunk” would say on “The Wire,” we’re stuck with a “stone whodunit” and while the city councilman was busted at his triumphant campaign rally and the female detective got to say the magic words, “You’re under arrest for the murder of Rosie Larson,” we’ll have to wait until after “Auld Lang Syne” to find out if he really did it.

In the meantime, “True Blood,” “Breaking Bad,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and other great shows will be back, meaning my TiVo will be busy.

We truly are in a golden age of great TV.
