Question: I just read the news that Sandra Oh has decided to leave Grey's Anatomy at the end of the season. I'm sure a lot of fans will be upset or disappointed, but I actually respect her choice to leave and am grateful she has given so much notice to the writers so that they will be able to find a way to write her out effectively, which Grey's has not always had in the past. However, the broader question here is how much longer the show should run. I can't really imagine right now what it will be like without Christina, but there was also ...

The Killing: Just How Evil Is Peter Sarsgaard's Ray Seward?

The Season 3 premiere of The Killing introduced viewers to Ray Seward, an inmate who is 30 days from being executed for brutally murdering his wife. But did he actually do it?

The Killing: Does Season 3 show signs of life?

Like almost every element of the show, Seward (an incredibly creepy Peter Sarsgaard) remains a mystery. The enigma surrounding the character is initially based on a series of contradictions. After bashing a prison chaplain's face in on the premiere, Seward proudly takes credit for his wife's murder and recounts in graphic detail the strength it took to kill her. But throughout the episode, Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) finds proof that suggests that Seward's wife was possibly murdered by a serial killer who's racked up more than a dozen other victims while Seward was in prison. Similarly, Seward talks about his son to manipulate a prison guard, but flatly denies having a child when being questioned by Linden.

Is it all just a series of mind games? Yes and no. "In that atmosphere, if you are not built like Vin Diesel, you've got to find a way to make somebody who looks like Vin Diesel fear you," Sarsgaard tells TVGuide.com...read more

The Killing: Does Season 3 Show Signs of Life?

[WARNING: The following story contains mild spoilers from the Season 3 premiere of AMC's The Killing. Read at your own risk.]

AMC's The Killing is back from the dead, but did the rain-soaked crime drama learn anything from the mistakes that sent it to an early grave in the first place?

Summer TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

To recap: After debuting to much fanfare two years ago, The Killing seemingly squandered its promise — it was to re-invent the stale crime procedural genre with a deeper, character-driven exploration of a single case — by introducing numerous (and often senseless) red herrings that kept the show's not-quite-three-dimensional heroes chasing their tails.... read more

Weekend TV Playlist: The Killing, Richard Pryor, Orphan Finale

In the killing fields of the ubiquitous TV crime drama, there are shows that attempt to expand the formula with depth of character and a hauntingly fatalistic tone, while many others cling to the comfort zone of wrapping each case within a tidy hour, just another routine day on the job. AMC's The Killing, back for a third season of dark brooding after narrowly escaping cancellation, is ambitious to a fault. And its fault lines showed throughout the first two erratic and indulgent though often absorbing seasons, with an overextended inquiry into a single murder case that frustrated and annoyed viewers with its obvious red herrings and stubborn lack of resolution until long past interest had waned.
