It's hilarious that she herself draws the comparison between her show and The Sopranos, then says what a compliment it is to be in the company of The Sopranos.
After Sunday's controversial, ambiguous first-season finale of AMC's The Killing, star Mireille Enos told THR, "There has been an Internet revolt!" Some pundits wonder if it won't slow the hot show's Emmy momentum just before Emmy ballots are due (June 24). But in an interview with THR's Kim Masters soon to air on the KCRW show The Business, showrunner Veena Sud says she knows the controversy is a big deal, but she thinks it's terrific.
"I'm flattered," says Sud, "and I guess surprised a little bit. But certainly it's a good feeling to know people are watching and talking about the show. I mean, the last time I felt this personally myself, and saw this type of reaction, was when The Sopranos ended its run [with a shockingly abrupt, ambiguous, mostly despised 2007 finale]. If the show can be in that company, it's a deep compliment."
