Most Wanted: AMC’s ‘The Killing’ Murders the Top Spot!

Image

This week marks the end of one of the best new shows of the year, and I’m sad to see it go. Fortunately, it’s just been renewed for a second season. Also, a new epic series makes it debut this week and could be the cable version of Terra Nova (hint!). A veteran show that you’ve seen a lot in the last few weeks will make yet another appearance on the list, but trust me, it’s warranted. What should you look out for this week? Find out on the list! Down below:

1. The Killing Season Finale

This fantastic drama mystery has kept me guessing all season, and we’ll hopefully find out who killed Rosie Larson in this week’s season closer. In last night’s episode, the final minutes were shocking, with Linden possibly finding who killed Rosie, and I never would’ve guessed it—**SPOILER ALERT!** it’s Seattle mayoral candidate Darren Richmond. And while you may have guessed that it’s him, this show has so many twists and turns that you can’t be sure, even though the evidence is stacking up against Richmond. We’ll see what happens when The Killing’s amazing first season wraps up this Sunday at 10 on AMC.

2. Falling Skies Series Premiere

TNT’s epic new series is getting great early reviews, and I’m definitely going to give it a shot. The Steven Spielberg-produced action drama takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where aliens have invaded the earth and are practically the dominating population. The armies are wiped out, and it’s up to the residing humans to fight back. I have no idea how they came up with this show without spending a ton of money, but it somehow landed on cable. It’s not a serial in that it wasn’t like FlashForward (fortunately,) and aims to be more like The Walking Dead in terms of being in survival mode. We’ll see if this show flourishes of flops, with the 2 hour Sunday premiere on TNT.

3. Friday Night Lights

After I saw Matt return to the show, I couldn’t think of a better development this far into the season. We’ll see what happens with them this week but going back to Matt I started to think: “What if Landry came back to Jess, since she’s so frustrated with Vince? Now that would be one hell of a plot.

4. The Voice Live Show #2

Last week was a great show, and I can’t imagine who will get eliminated tomorrow night. We’ll see which two (yes, TWO contestants!) will get axed from the show, and who landed in the bottom with them, which could give us a look into who could get eliminated the following week. If I had to pick two, it would be Lily and Xenia. Lily has a voice, but is way too picky and risks it all to hit a note that just can’t be reached; and for Xenia, she just doesn’t have the vocal range to stick around for the rest of the season.

5. Green Lantern

This new superhero flick has been in the works for awhile now (it was on the cover of my first EW issue!) and it’s just now making it to theaters. Ryan Reynolds plays the legendary title character, who gets special abilities from a special ring, and uses it to fight crime. Will it stick with audiences at the box office? We’ll see…

Thats it! Come back next Monday for a brand new edition of the Most Wanted List!
