True Detective

A friend of mine just gave me the blu-ray. I totally missed it when it aired this winter. I'm going in blind with no idea what it really is about. Any fans of the show?
I've heard nothing but great things from this show. It's on my list of shows to actually watch. I mean, it's HBO, so I don't expect anything less than amazing. . [

I'm bored and trying to fill the gap until the new shows start again in a few weeks, so I'm giving this a go. About to watch the pilot right now!

It's my favorite new show of the year!

Aaaagh, this gets me pumped Smile

I was wondering who would you cast in season 2 of True Detective. The rumor is it's set in California (not LA) and it supposed to have three leads, two males and one female. I would cast a combination of Christian Bale, Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Mary-Louise Parker, Rachel McAdams and Carey Mulligan. 

Idris/Mary-Louise and Rachel M. Screw the rest. Bale needs stick to Batman which is cut short.

I read that Season two will be Vince Vaughn, Elizabeth Moss, and Taylor Kitsch.
I can't post the link because I DON'T KNOW WHY IT'S EITHER MY PHONE OR THE WHISKEY.

There are still some mobile posting issues that I hope to resolve. Either way, you should be focusing on the present and not the future. You just started!

I simply performed a cursory Google search to make sure the show was worth my time.
And saw the Season 2 cast info and thought "oooh an anthology!"

Shhh I'll report back later Wink

The show is absolutely amazing, you won't regret your decision.

Two episodes in, and it's okay .
Kind of a slow start, but the hype is too much for me to ignore, and there's really nothing else for me to watch right now, so I'm definitely gonna keep going.

I'd say it is a slow burn, much like The Leftovers in that regard.

Caught up through Episode 4 last night. Holey smokers was that last scene intense. It got all the way to the credits when I went, "Wait...was that all one shot"?  So I rewound and sure enough, hot damn that was one long *** take from the time they enter into the crackhouse or whatever it was, all through the shootouts and when Rust was dragging Ginger around, up until they got into the car with Martin.


Impressive!

I like Elisabeth Moss and this she is a phenomenal actress, but I want to see how Rachel McAdams fares in a role like this.

Well I finished the series last night, and I've gotta say, I give it a resounding.....Meh.

I wish I would've been as captivated by it as others seem to have been. It was generating good buzz so I had high hopes. There was really only one or two episodes that I actually could get into. I found myself most times having to rewind and watch the same scenes (and even entire halves of episodes) over and over again to even get what was being said, who they were referring to, etc.
 

The only good thing for me is, being that this is an anothology series, I'm not writing off Season 2. Depending on the actors they get, I will more than likely check it out, and just hope that Season 1 was a fluke for me.

Hmmm....

 

You must have watched this version:

 

Rather than this verision:

 

BTW: True Detective is now doing on encore on HBO (started last night).

What can I say? At least I'm not one of those people that doesn't like Breaking Bad. Now THAT would be embarassing!

I loved Breaking Bad when it was good and before it was cool to like Breaking Bad. I just bailed when I started to nod off watching episodes.

I feel the same way about Breaking Bad that you feel about True Detective. Don't get me wrong, I like the show, but I feel like people hype it so much and I just don't understand all the praise.

'True Detective' Season 2 Female Lead Shortlist Revealed

Looks like Rachel McAdams has some competition including, but not limited to, Jessica Biel, Jaimie Alexander, and the newly reported frontrunner Rosario Dawson. I was excited to give this a try when McAdams was initially announced, but Biel or Dawson will just as good as well. Male leads have been locked for a while with Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn. Season two's cast is shaping up to be pretty good, but I still need to check out season one!

Flipping through older articles, this one caught my eye:

'True Detective' May Only Get Three Seasons

Just started this tonight, and I'm loving it so far! Albeit I'm only an episode in though (internet is acting 50 shades of ****** up tonight...), haha! Harrelson and McConaughey are a great duo and I have high hopes for the season, even though OPD scared me a bit! Will definitely binge it this weekend!

Wait until you get to the fourth episode, it's definitely the best one.

Can't wait! I'll definitely post my thoughts throughout!
