True Detective......more (or less) HBO awesomeness

very stoked for this, esp after Woody's performance in out of the furnace, which was an outstanding turn in a mediocre movie.

also McConaughey has grown on me with his performance in killer joe + mud.

have very high hopes for this show, expect nothing less then continued greatness from the GOAT channel.

premiers jan 12.

Re: True Detective......more HBO awesomeness

I've read that this will be more like a miniseries, so Woody and McConaughey are only going to be in the first season. That's a bit disappointing, but either way, the trailers for this have been so strong that I'll definitely be watching.

Re: True Detective......more HBO awesomeness

Does look good. I love TV deep south stuff for some reason. Rednecks, moonshine, houses on stilts, an abundance of rifles. Something about laid back people who dont take any ****

True Detective is an upcoming American television anthology[3] drama series on HBO created and written by Nic Pizzolatto, with the first season directed by Cary Fukunaga.[4] Season one stars Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin Dunn, Tory Kittles and Michael Potts, and utilizes multiple timelines to trace two detectives' hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana across seventeen years.[4] The premiere season will debut on January 12, 2014 and consist of eight episodes.
Could be outstanding the way they are going to tell it over such a long period.

McConaughey is one of those actors I can never see as whatever character he's playing, he's just always Matthew McConaughey. I'll still probably tune in tho.

Yeah, it's an anthology, not a miniseries. They're planning on having a season 2 but with new characters and actors.

Because of this, on another network I would be worried about the awesomeness of the show going forward after season one. But on HBO, I bet they can pull top list talent season after season.

It's great to see HBO trying out the British model of short seasons attracting bigger name talent. Looking forward to it!

HBO isn't one of those networks that releases/leaks premieres early, huh? Cause I would love to have this one now.

He was really good in Mud as well. MM and Leto should both get nominated for Dallas Buyers Club.

Can't wait. Good timing because once Masters of Sex ended I've been dry on tv shows.
