True Detective [HBO] (spoilers)

Post by grillis » Wed Jan 29, 2014 6:43 am

whos scoped it? new series starring mathew mcconaughey & woody harrelson as a detective duo investigating an apparent ritualistic murder in a small louisiana town. lots of interesting imagery and everything seems really deliberate.. will compile some theories in a few posts. suffice to say this thread will contain spoilers for those who have not watched the show/latest episode

I posted this in the Recommend a series thread.
3 Episodes in and it is great.
Each episode has just been better than the first.
Great acting and a compelling storyline so far.
The characters have totally engrossed me so far.

Highly recommended.

yep i read yours and ronins posts from the tv series thread, figured it deserved it's own thread..

have to agree with ronins sentiments:
Rönin wrote:McConaughey is fantastic and I officially regret having ever discarded him as a B-list romcom actor.
really keen to see him in his role in 'dallas buyers club' after this.. seems like he's got into some method acting or something.

if you weren't aware already the series will take an 'anthology' format with a completely new cast/story for next season.. will be interesting to see how that pans out

I'm interested in the future of the show.
I read a while back about the cast/story change.
Looking forward to it.

I'm not sure how far you've watched but it develops nicely as each episode progresses.

I was reading about the temperatures being close to -8.
Coldest Superbowl match or something.
Concerns for the players and such things.

Okay so I really think Hart's daughter are seeing someone from the cult at school, first the dolls, then the sex drawings and if you look at the scene where Hart comes home to Rust having mowed his lawn there's a drawing of the spiral (same as the back of the victim + birds) hanging on the kitchen wall.

Ep.4 will probably be mostly action, there's talk of a gunfight with the crazy gasmask creep at the end of Ep.3

His daughter is certainly a bit disturbed.
Some of those images in her dairy are rather disturbing.
All those shlongs at her age.
