I sent this over to the Water Cooler as the Creative Media Section is more meant for original artwork, photoshops, wallpapers, and gifs created by site members.

 

I have been watching True Detective, its a very dark narrative so far and i'm very much enjoying it. What I also like is that each season will be an entirely new cast and story line. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will only be in the first season's 8 episodes. 

 

For those unfamiliar, True Detective is a new HBO original series for 2014 and plays out like a cross between the movie Se7en and Law & Order style detective narrative drama. It's not for the light hearted, has a bit of a twisted aspect to it and can be portrayed as mildly disturbing. 

 

As with any live airing program, let's minimize spoilers as some catch up on episodes later in the week and others have not begun watching it at all.

Thanks I didn't notice the cooler section, my mistake... Yea I heard about the cast and story changes for next season, at first I was a bit disappointed but then thought about it a bit and it makes sense somewhat because of the story... They both skilled the acting this season, for sure will be hard to top... Last nights episode had another epic cliffhanger left me dying to see more lol... Did you watch the episode? I'm very sad next Sunday is the finale "/...

I still need to watch last nights episode, I generally watch on Monday through the xbox on HBO GO when it comes up. 

 

American Horror Story does something similar, each season it's a new set of characters and an entirely different story line, although a lot of the cast remains the same. 

 

I can only guess who they might get for season 2, I anticipate more great and well known actors to match or top what they have been doing this season. 

 

It's tough getting into shows like this that have so few episodes per season, the BBC version of Sherlock is another example as it's only a 3 episode season but each one is two hours long. I'll continue to watch True Detective after this season, i'm enjoying it thoroughly so far and i'm eager to see how it all concludes.

One of the best scripts I've ever seen in a television show.

 

The attention to detail in both acting and directing is just phenomenal.
