    Finished that first episode of True Detective.

    Then watched the 2nd. The 2nd was much better. It's at least getting interesting now while nothing happens.

    Hopefully it picks up a bit- but the 2nd ep at least was good enough to warrant a 3rd episode watch.

    Can't say that for the first episode. (Yeah yeah... you can establish characters while having things happen. So can it!)

    This is the beauty of True Detective. The first three episodes you think you're watching a certain kind of show then WHAM, episode four explodes into something else entirely! It just starts happening and doesn't stop..

    On the rewatch I realized how much insight of Rust's motivation is revealed in the first episodes. He asks Marty "Do you believe in ghosts".. That scene alone defines what is haunting Rust - and I had barely noticed it the first time though.

    The Munchausen By Proxy scene "If you get the opportunity you should probably kill yourself.."
    Great stuff..

    Yeah, 3rd episode was good. Glad I gave it a chance through the first 2.

    Some of these scenes are beautiful, too.

    I watched all of season one of True Detective in 3 sittings, I thought it was great. I've also noticed that HBO has pretty much all of their original series available on demand on Xfinity. I missed Deadwood during its original run so I'm thinking that might be my next show to try out.

    Yep. I just started Deadwood too for that very reason.

    Vikings is probably the best show on TV right now, at least until GoT starts back.

    Everyone needs to watch.

    HBO has so much stuff on demand...

    I'll be on to The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire next.
