ozmissage: (The Killing. Linden/Holder.)
I signed up for Sarah Linden less because of what fandom thinks of her (because really, The Killing doesn’t have anything resembling a real fandom…there are five us and we meet in a broom closet every week to eat stale donuts and discuss when Linden and Holder will make out who killed Rosie Larsen), and more for how the mainstream media approaches her. Go Google “Sarah Linden worst”, I’ll wait. I’m planning on talking about the general suckiness of the media when it comes to this show/Sarah in more depth throughout the week, but I want to start out by addressing this “brilliant” bit of journalistic deduction from a recent Jezebel article:

"Sarah Linden, didn't bring any of the internal drama to the table that we get with our troubled patriarchs (or even their complicated female friends). It didn't help matters when the show tried to raise the stakes for Sarah by making her a workaholic with a whining son and fiancé; audiences have long grown weary of stories portraying women as incapable of having a work life when home life calls, especially when said women have teenage children who can feed themselves."


She's a complex lady, sweetheart. )
