I see an Emmy sweep coming. One of the best seasons of TV I've ever watched.
I haven't seen it yet. Couldn't. The show broke HBO, literally. HBO Go and their website crashed from the overwhelming numbers that went to watch it.
I just finished watching it on Go...
Loved the finale. Great closure for both characters. Loved how well Harrelson and McConaghey played so well as each other's foils all season, even during tense situations towards the end.
Looking forward to seeing what new characters the writing team comes up with next season. Also, can't wait to see if they can bring in more star power for the leads.
Next season has a lot to live up to.
Gonna take me a few days to decide how I feel about that finale....
Wow. I'm still reeling from that. No spoilers, but uh, that knifing was nasty. Damn. Amazing and solid performances all the way through right to the end. McConaughey crying at the end just about tore me to shreds.
I think he finally found hope for once in his life, at least that's how I took it. Fantastic show from beginning to end. Makes you damn uncomfortable and makes you think. It better win an Emmy, it just better.
Yesssssssss there is a actual thread for this here. I was about to be letdown in this community like I was when I found out Mad Men doesn't have a thread here (WTF GUYS) but at least y'all gave one for this show. One of the best opening seasons ever. Doesn't even feel like a tv show, feels like a movie broken into parts.
Sad it's an anthology series and the characters get switched out but I love that this means the story won't be hampered by any pulled punches or plot armor to keep characters in stasis for years on end.

True Detective Season 2 taking shape_
1 of the new Rumored leads for 2015 - Bradd Pitt
( All new cast- new case)
I don't mind Pitt, but I really hope the first big 'rumor' of Christian Bale & Denzel Washington for the new season turns out to be true.
Whatever happens, I'm very interested to see how they approach a new season of this one, and actually love the idea of new casts per seasons.
Season 2 cast announced:
Detectives: Collin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch ( Lone Survivor )
Villian(s): Vince Vaughn
Location of crime: Southern California
RETRO KIMMER'S BLOG: TRUE DETECTIVE SEASON 2 STARRING LINEUP ANNOUNCED!
No interest (will watch).
Vince Vaughn as the villain. Ok that can actually be pretty good. I mean aside from being in comedies, his other typecast was being as that creep villain like in Domestic Disturbance and (sadly) Norman Bates in that shot for shot remake of Psycho. Now I haven't seen those films but it's worth noting he has played villains before, I'm sure he can do well here.
It should also be pointed out that at this time, nothing is official and this random dude's blog should not be taken as such..
Yeah, I noticed that too... after I posted a reply. Deleted, and sitting tight again for some actual official news.
It looks great so far. I hope it's great because most of these actors could use a comeback.
I know Vince Vaughn will be great here.
Some GORGEOUS new character posters revealed, and some new info from the show creator...
