My advice would be to watch the Danish original instead, with subtitles (reading ain't that bad, honest). It's far more subtle and moving than the AMC version. Both from an acting and filming perspective it's more naturalistic and so it involves the viewer and evokes more attachment to the characters.
AMC have given us what is (IMO) one of the best shows of the decade with Breaking Bad so I know they are capable of some amazing output. I just wish they'd directed their energies into making something more original than this remake ofForbrydelsen. You can of course argue that it makes the story accessible to a much wider audience, but in doing so it dilutes it.
I'm not trying to be a snob, I am entertained by much more 'low-brow' shows I just think that a classic should be left alone and creative energies harnessed for more original concepts.
Anyone else feel this way?
