Last April, AMC premiered its newest show, “The Killing,” which turned out to be a critical darling. On paper, the show sounded wonderful. It seemed like the second coming of past hit “Twin Peaks.” Both shows were set in the dreary Pacific Northwest, and they both focused on the murder of a popular high school girl who actually had quite a few secrets.
“Who killed Laura Palmer?” was the question that many Americans wondered over 20 years ago. Laura was a high school prom queen who was discovered dead near the local sawmill in her quirky town of Twin Peaks in the Pacific Northwest. She had a secret and deceitful life that few knew about, one that caused her to make many enemies.
