    It's confusing much of the time (for me anyway) but I still dig it, anxious to see how it turns out.

    So if it comes back, it will have the same writer and director? I thought they were going to change everything each season.

    That's my understanding, everything changes with season two.... cast and crew.

    No, just new stories and characters. Same writer and director.

    Guess I was wrong about Fukunaga (he said last summer that running a show was too much work and he wouldn't be back as director for the second series). But I've never seen a hint that Pizzolatto wouldn't be back, and everything they're saying now is that the delays in picking it up formally are down to him not having the story ready yet.

    MM's acceptance speech was kind of jarring considering his character's "pessimist" views. I know, I know, it's called "acting" but I noticed the irony, especially since his speech was so far to the other end of the spectrum.

    According to Wikipedia at least, this is Pizzolatto's baby (he's signed for two years), but the director will change. I guess I was half right.

    How much can you change a show and still have it be considered season 2?

    "Okay, next season will have new cast and crew, a new director, the story won't be a continuation of what came before but will be a new plot with new characters in a different setting. But the writer will be the same. It's season 2!"

    If the story still fits the title "True Detective", then I suppose that is your answer.

    Yeah, it's a bit different. One of the articles I read about it called it 'a movie on steroids'... seems apt to me.

    Personally, I like it. I don't want every show to follow this format, but I think it will work for some, especially if the writing is good and they have a good story to tell.

    I know, and it works very well for AHS (and I'm looking forward to the same being true for True Detective). But AHS uses many of the same players, season to season, so it's not quite as extreme as the concept here.

    I know it would seem too much of a cop-out (and I don't think this is the reveal), but it's still possible that Rust is the big bad, right? I mean, just because he told Marty he stole the pictures and VHS from Tuttle's doesn't make it so -- like almost all of the other evidence in the mystery so far.

    We've not seen anything that definitively proves it's NOT Rust, or am I forgetting something?

    Is the yellow king the same person as the killer?

    wow...torturing the sheriff is a big leap. How do you recover from that?

    Not sure there's going to be any recovering.
