Damn you HBO, as if I needed another reason to waste time on HBOGo.
Hmm this looks awesome, even for a 8 episodes gig. I'm wondering how the hell they nailed both Conaughey and Harrelson for main characters.
Just saw the first preview of this tonight, daaaamn this is going to be good.
TV stars are the new movie stars that's how!
matthew mcconaughey is the serial killer
Awesome shots, I'm really curious to watch Harrelson / McConaughey pairing with each other.
This looks like a potential hit show. HBO is so good...
This show looks like it's going to be amazing.
I thought I read somewhere Harrelson/McConaughey are going to be on one episode. I wish I remember where.
PSN: Araxen, Xbox Live: Araxen II, WiiU: Araxen, Steam: Araxen
1 season, not 1 episode. Each season is going to feature different detectives.
This show smells win on so many levels, I just hope it won't disappoint.
Upcoming Nude Scenes - UPDATE: True Detective S01E02 (Alexandra Daddario-Breasts. Ass; Possible Merkin)
"Very good news on the Alexandra Daddario front! She does indeed go topless (and more) in True Detective.
The shots from the trailers don’t lie, she doffs her top in Episode 2 of the series after handcuffing Woody Harrelson to a bed… but it gets better. She then gets up off the bed, turns around and bends over as she takes off her bottoms showing a great shot of her butt and very brief/dark full frontal as she turns back around. A front runner for nude scene of 2014 already. They’re real and they’re spectacular."
I am waiting.
Super excited about this. 2 A list actors and a HBO budget.
Liked the first episode, looking very solid.
Good shit, looking forward to the next episode.
I like the actors but I kinda hate both of their characters. Will keep watching but I'm not hooked yet.
Really liked this first episode. Being Louisiana born and raised, I think they caught the atmosphere perfectly.
First episode was very good, in my opinion. Nice little hook at the end to leave you wanting the next episode.
Going to give this a few episodes before I judge it, I just hope it doesn't becomes another cop show, full of unlikable cops figuring out who dunnit
"Cause it's Thursday and it's past noon. Thursday is one of my days off and on my off days I start drinking at noon and you don't get to interrupt that"
The premiere made me want to go rewatch 'Frailty'...I really enjoyed that movie.
Thought it was really solid. They're already hinting that they didn't really solve the crime with it being repeated recently, at least that's what I gathered from the newer cops showing Rust the picture.
Also Rust is one wierd fucking dude, if I was Harrelson's character I would have just punched him in the mouth in the car after a while.
Slow moving story
My pickle's been tickled
From what I've read, they will use a different cast and different story line each season. With that in mind, there's no telling what they will do with the characters since there is no season to season investment.
hi guys, i will be joining this thread very soon.

this show is very good. I wish I had discovered it after an entire season was already out
good show, it starts off a bit slow and they threw a few trope red herrings in there but its pretty decent, helped a ton by the good actors they casted. i guess the religious governor is the first person of interest, way too early to tell if he is the killer. im also guessing the black detectives suspect Rust is involved somehow. this show also made me want some Lone Star, i used to like that beer when i hung out in biker bars, but never a fucking can beer. bottles all the way.
It's the brainfucked baseball uncle.
My initial thought when they showed Rust the picture and his response was that maybe they had been pressured to make an arrest and get a conviction, but that they kind of knew they didn't have the right guy.
Jay O. Sanders but I can't see him listed anywhere.
I must have missed it but how did they become interested in searching / interviewing the peeps regarding the missing girl that supposedly ran off with her dad ? Was that an ongoing case they were involved with or something they wanted to look into in connection with that murder at the tree ?
It's totally throwing me off that McConaughey is the weird oddball and Harrelson is the straight/normal one. Just the exact opposite of their typical roles. Especially since the last couple movies I saw recently with Harrelson were Out of the Furnace and Seven Psychopaths. I like it though.
The way Harrelson and McConaughey contrast in the first episode is certainly interesting. On the surface, it makes me think maybe McConaughey is the killer but then I think it mostly points to the fact that the case made him lose control of it all but it's still too early to tell. The show has me hooked and I'm already wishing it was a Netflix seasonal release so I could buzzsaw through the entire season.
McConaughey is in no way "the killer" imo. If it is anyone atm it's Woody. I have no idea who the killer might be but I bet we met him in ep1. My guess for why they haven't talked for 10 years? McConaughey sleeps with Woody's wife after she finds out he is fucking giant eyes mctits.
Another reason I don't go to the movies anymore...HBO makes far superior entertainment. And great stories usually need more than two hours to tell.
I'd be shocked if we have already met the killer in the first episode. This is HBO afterall, and not a season premiere of Dexter. McConaughey is most defintely going to bang Harrelson's wife. She was giving him some serious googly-eyes after he opened up to her about the death of his daughter.
I am so fucking excited about the rest of this season. I also find McConaughey's character very intriguing. Can't wait until next Sunday!
I like that this show plan to do entire stories in a single season. It will not only keep it from dragging, but allow them to land bigger actors like this, since they don't have to commit to a multi-year show.
True Detective (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Louisiana, 1995. Detectives Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rustin "Rust" Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) investigate the ritualistic murder of former prostitute Dora Kelly Lange, found with a symbol painted on her back and wearing a "crown" of deer antlers. A twig latticework, like a Cajun bird trap, is found with her body. Cohle is convinced that this is not the killer's first victim, but Hart is skeptical. Their investigation brings up the case of Marie Fontenot, a little girl whose disappearance five years earlier was not investigated. Another report is brought up, of a little girl who claimed to be chased through the woods by a "green-eared spaghetti monster." Hart invites Cohle over for dinner, unaware that it is Cohle's deceased daughter's birthday. Cohle reluctantly accepts but, losing a battle with alcoholism, turns up drunk. Hart and Cohle follow up on the Fontenot disappearance with a visit to Marie's uncle Danny. In a dilapidated playhouse, Cohle finds another twig latticework.
Seventeen years later, Hart and Cohle are interviewed separately about Dora Kelly Lange by Detectives Thomas Papania (Tory Kittles) and Maynard Gilbough (Michael Potts). Hart and Cohle have not spoken in ten years following a falling-out in 2002. Cohle is shown a photograph of another girl whose body has been found posed in similar fashion to Lange. Papania and Gilbough want to know how the killer could have struck again if he was caught in 1995.
I thought it was very good. It's one of those shows that's pretty dialogue heavy and you need to pay attention to what's being said. It's also one of those shows that probably wouldn't be as good if it didn't have two A list actors headlining it. It's amazing how McConaughey has resurrected his career from chick flicks.
My hunch is the killer is either Woody or someone we haven't met yet.
Yeah, I misread Astro's first post. Disregard my unnecessary math lesson.
This looks to be a great show.
It was alittle different then what I was expecting and to be honest I am still not sure if I liked it or not. I have been trying to figure that out all week. Matthew McConaughey's character is really interesting though and I thought he did a great job playing the 2 different sides of the same person. The younger Rust who was trying to stay sober and come to grips with his place in the universe and then the older Rust who clearly gave in to his alcoholism after what we can assume was some deep shit that happened. I will definitely watch it next week though and I hope this is a slow burner where each episode gets better and better.
Really liked the first episode and both McConaughey / Harrelson are really good, especially McConaughey. I also like the atmosphere / ambiance, they're doing a very good job at depicting Louisiana. Felt like David Fincher's Zodiac, in some way.
Lester from The Wire will be the killer, but it will turn out to be a larger conspiracy involving the church. Woody will doubt McSkeletor because of his bias against religion, but will eventually admit that he's right. The whole thing will be buried because of the connection to the governor.
Just watched the first episode tonight. Good stuff.
He actually looks more natural in the 2012 scenes with the scraggly meth hair. The beanpole look seems odd when he still (somewhat) has his shit together.
He was in Oscar mode for Dallas Buyers Club (before? after? during?) and it shows here too. Maybe that's why he switched characters - he already had to look like he had buttAIDS for this other role anyway.

post your dream cast for the new pair of detectives in season 2
William Shatner and Nicholas Cage
Michael Shannon and John Goodman.
Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio
I think they're also planning on having a single director for every season instead of multiple ones like most other shows. Cary Fukunaga directed season 1.
I want to add David Lynch to my Jonah Hill suggestion.
Goodman would be a great Southern Hard boiled detective.
Those fucking gifs did not do her justice. Holy fuck.
Suddenly I want cake.....
Mark Ruffalo and Edward Norton
Another solid episode and quite possibly the best pair of tits on an HBO show yet!
You really do need to pay attention to the dialog on this show. I was watching it while cooking dinner and out of sorts from the 49ers losing and I kept having to rewind things. I think I will watch the whole episode again when I'm not distracted. I didn't miss the tits though. Kind of the type that will get fat and saggy in her 30s but for right now she looks fucking amazing.
What's the name of the girl with the rack again? Holy fuck is she hot.
So I've yet to watch this, I have both episodes DVR'ed. I'm debating on letting it run its course and just watching them all at once.
Watch them now, then watch them all at once when they're finished.
