Fwiw, and given that there are a) clearly differences, particularly with regard to the killer and b) as a result I reckon you'll miss the pay off from the last five minutes of the Danish version which, honestly, makes all 20 hours worth it, I'd seriously suggest buying the Danish series :-)

From the Wikipedia page:

In contrast to the original Danish series, executive producer Veena Sud explained, "We're creating our own world. We are using the Danish series as a blueprint, but we are kind of diverging and creating our own world, our world of suspects and, potentially, ultimately who killed Rosie Larsen."

Basically they made the season finale Seattle's version of a Kennedy assassination.

And while I thought the show had it's lulls, closure last night would've earned them a committed fan to the show.

I just don't feel like I need to invest in this show any more. I may. But if I see I missed the show, come here on Monday and see there are 15 more posts, I'll read them not worrying if the killer is revealed.

If the killer isn't revealed by the end of the second episode in the next season, there shouldn't be more than 10 people watching this show any more.

I am not watching next season. This may sound funny because I watched the show this long, but I dont like being strung along. I was expecting closure last night and got a bunch of crap. If they reveal the killer (still probably the councilman how can it not be?) ealry next season I will still not watch it and if they do not reveal the killer until later I will not care either way anymore. I missed the first episode of Falling Skies which I was really interested in trying to get into because of last night. Now I missed the 2 hour season opener and unless I get VERY lucky and just happen to turn on the TV when they air the encore (if they have one later this week) I will never get into that show because of last nights crap.

We all sound like those people who swear they won't watch American Idol anymore because so and so was voted off.

We'll all be back.

Well...I will be back next season...

I was looking for a resolution, but instead we have a new season with the ending to this case and a new case to begin...

Which is better than no series at all next year...

I suspect most of us "Morans" will be captured again next year...

Even though we are now mad at the world for being human and needing closure...

I am not really pissed off at all. I like the way they tell the story and they added a couple of new layers like how the councilman isn't so noble and who exactly is Holder working for (a drug dealer? the current mayor? another coucilman? that billionaire?).

I don't think Belko was aiming for Councilman Richmond to silence him, I think he was doing it out of revenge for destroying his "family". I don't think Belko killed Rosie, I think he really loved her (but not in a sadistic way). I like the Stan Larsen character a lot too. He's trying so hard to do the right things.

I don't always need a resolution. They left me wanting more. In fact, I will be honest, I was a little pissed off at how Dexter ended last season.....all the little problems got totally wrapped up. I would have liked to have seen Debra find out who he really is and then leave it for this season. The way Dexter ended the season before with Rita's death was fantastic.....you talk about wanting more?

I'll be back next season, mostly because there aren't that many scripted shows and AMC has done a really good job with Mad Men and Breaking Bad of resolving most things but leaving you hanging on some juicy stuff too. The Breaking Bad ending last season was brilliant.

But Dexter always resolves the main story arc (Rosie's killer) and leaves the side effects to be dealt with the next season (Ahmed survives? Mitch comes home? The Councilman? The Mayor's girlfriend? Sarah's engagement? Holder's lie?)

There was plenty of interest left that a cliff hanger wasn't needed.

I will go into next season fully expecting there to never be a resolution. I won't last long if that appears to be true.

I bet they resolve it within the first 2 episodes and the next investigation involves Holder and another murder.

I really wanted Deb to catch Dexter - I was seriously disappointed when she didn't.

String me along....just be entertaining in the process. That's what they did with me.

Please stop putting this garbage show in the same conversation with Mad Men and Breaking Bad.

Please stop telling me what to do....

Deal. You stop comparing two of the best shows on tv with this garbage, and I'll stop telling you what you do.

I don't think its nearly as good as Breaking Bad (which I think is way better than Mad Men), but I also don't think the show is garbage. This all depends on how they start out next season - I don't think they'll string it out more than 2 or 3 episodes before another case comes up.

It did seem like they scrambled the ending together really quickly almost as if they really didn't expect a Season 2 until the last minute and decided "wow, we need a cliffhanger".

Twin Peaks didn't reveal the killer until Season 2 as well and that show was great, even when it got really really weird instead of just weird.

I really, really, REALLY hated the way the Sopranos ended - at first, but after some distance of a few weeks I realized how brilliant it really was.

i was not upset one bit. as far as i was concerned, i loved the series so much, i can't wait to see more. ]

this gives me time to really theororize and break down the first season, then finally see how it pans out.

Just to be clear, I thought the show was garbage well before the finale. I thought it started off great, but as soon as the episodes started becoming a never ending string of red herrings, it really went downhill in my mind. But this kind of stuff is all subjective, so there is nothing wrong if you happen to find it interesting. I just found it to be lazy. I'm more upset with myself for continuing to watch it under the assumption that we would at least get some closure on the season. I think a lot of people felt the same way, but clearly there are others that didn't.

I liked the sopranos ending, but I can certainly understand why many didn't. At the very least, the sopranos gave us multiple seasons of excellence. The same could be said of other great shows with controversial endings like lost or bsg. It's really difficult to nail a series finale. The difference to me with those shows is that their cliffhanger endings were, in my mind, a way of planting a new seed of mystery after concluding a particular story arc. None of those shows were billed as a series devoted to resolution of one single mystery.

I read this elsewhere, but lost was not billed as "what's inside the hatch?" they didn't end each episode of the first season implying the answer, and then saying "just kidding!"

I don't know. Just trying to explain what I don't like about the killing.

The Sopranos left you hanging for sure. Heck, I saw the last episode on whatever cable station shows it on advertising TV, and it still got me again.

But, that said, it made sense. It wasn't the end of their lives. It was the end of the show, but their lives went on after the show ended.

Actually, I was able to live with that one.

Oh, I disagree with that. I think that was the end of Tony Soprano. Remember before the last two episodes (during "previously on the Sopranos") they showed Bobby Bacala saying to Tony "you never hear it coming". I think the end, was the end of Tony and since the show revolved around Tony, everything went silent and black.

Agreed on your interpretation. First episode of that season Bobby even says he thinks it all just fades to black or something like that. It faded to black. And it made you wait for credits. It also abruptly ended on a shot from tony's point of view. He dead dawg.
