True Detective | Season 2 airs Mondays
Really psyched for this. Woody Harrelson & Matthew McConaughey in a southern gothic police procedural. All 8 episodes directed by Cary Fukunaga. Going with the "one & done" anthology format seems like a stroke of genius. Can't wait.

Steve - the drunken racist who ends up owning Hostetler's livery - from Deadwood is also in it.

Finally caught up on this and loved it. It looks amazing even managing to make the grim shanty type towns look beautiful. There's some fine writing in it and it's really crisply directed and would need to be considering there's only 8 eps all up. It also seems to be a move away from the whole rooting for the anti-hero trope that was starting to become a thing in tv.

Love seeing Harrelson and McConaughey work off each other but the acting is top notch all round.

The Handsome Family theme is an actual song of theirs isn't it? Regardless, stick it with all the other great opening tv show themes. And x3 on the Black Angels closing: fuck yes.

The music - by T Bone Burnett - throughout the show was great too: not overpoweringly emotive just moody.

---

If I have one criticism, and perhaps it has more to do with my hearing than anything else, is that I felt the accents were indecipherable at certain points. I think they possibly should have re-shot or re-recorded these parts (admittedly there weren't many) because even after rewinding and turning up the volume, sometimes 3 or 4 times, I still couldn't make out what was being said. That's probably just me though as I have a seriously knackered left ear.

Mate, totally fucking agree. Southern accent + mumbling = NFI what was just said. Happened a few times for me, too. Luckily I have a very vivid imagination and filled it in with sentences that I thought would fit, most involving unicorns and ice cream.

Glad I'm not alone.

And @ unicorns & ice cream. My imagination stretched to, 'this is probably how I sound drunk - fuck me, people are only smiling and nodding their heads and humouring me when I drink.'

It's a slow burner, but I'm really enjoying this. Some amazing landscapes, which really add to the eerie feel of the show.

I am in love with this show.

Is anyone else getting serious early Twin Peaks vibes? Like, when it first started and was mysterious as all fuck and had just the right amount of creep?

I'm now a McConaughey convert. Motherfucker is incredible in this. Those flashback scenes, his face...masterclass. And when he's talking about his daughter and marriage falling apart. Damn.

+1 for that chick's chest puppy appreciation.

Caught the first episode. Fucking impressed with Matthew mcconaughey. Need to check out that Dallas something or other movie I've heard talk of.

His 'the world sucks' diatribe was fucking depressing, almost completely over the top, but felt utterly believable coming from his character.

Sooooooo at the current rate of every episode being better than the last, I estimate that the finale will cause both my testicles and brain to explode simultaneously.

Still can't get over the fact that Matt Mc can act like a motherfucker. Kept that a secret!

Two of his first big roles were in Dazed & Confused by Richard Linklater and Lone Star by John Sayles and he was great in both which were completely different kinds of roles. Then after Contact he started getting every rom-com lead and phoned it in. I admit a kind of forgot about those earlier roles too because he was Mr. Beige for so long but the talent was always there. And now he seems to be willing to forego a big pay day for good stuff. Not including True Detective these are the films he's been in since 2011:

The Lincoln Lawyer
Bernie
Killer Joe
The Paperboy
Mud
Magic Mike
Dallas Buyers Club
The Wolf of Wall Street
and later this year Nolan's, Interstellar.

Not all of those roles are stretches for sure but they are all pretty interesting films (I haven't seen Mud, Paperboy, or Interstellar obviously) and are of a type of those he first started in.

I guess a lot of actors make hay while the sun shines regardless of the mindcrushing dullness of the material but they don't generally get paid the big bucks to play oddities and grotesques.
