The problem with The Killing

Watching The Killing makes me appreciate how good 24 was. Admittedly, 24 has not aged very well and even at its very pomp you could find plot holes big enough to fly Air Force One into and scenarios that were so silly they probably belonged in surreal comedy sketches. 484 more words
