    I'm hoping this show is smart enough to avoid having Cohle be implicated as a suspect. It almost seemed to be hinting at this with his visions. I'm hoping it's just the more straightforward plot of throwing him under the bus for the incorrect arrest.

    I'm amazed at the flashback Rust and present day Rust. He looks like he's 20 years older and not just with makeup - it's in the eyes and posture. Just a totally depressing but well played character.

    I was thinking this yesterday too. Like wondering if they shot the future scenes months after the past scenes so he had time to get himself messed up looking. Being a TV show, I assume they shot one episode at a time and weren't able to do this? I know this show was written and shot differently, so who knows.

    I think there's some stellar make-up work going on there, but it does seem possible given how this show is being made that it is instead scenes shot much later.

    Yeah, it was all one director, so they probably shot it movie-style as a single unit. It wouldn't make sense not to, with the money they could save.

    Everyone likes Woody's girlfriend. :D

    Totally hooked on this show now. It delivers in spades imo.

    I much prefer Woody's wife.

    Then again, I've much preferred her to just about anyone since Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

    Oh, I actually agree. She's smokin' hot in very subtle and sultry way. Loved KKBB.

    But she didn't get nekked. :)

    Stil getting caught up on the first couple episodes, but when the theme first came on, I thought it was going to be Del Shannon's "Runaway".

    First few bars are exactly the same.

    That scene about Rust threatening to apply a couple of pounds of pressure to snap Woody's wrists -- Is there really a hold like that?

    I couldn't quite see what was happening but certainly under the right conditions a double wrist-lock could mess up the wrist pretty badly.

    I didn't any nudity :confused:

    This show is really great. I'm enjoying it. I am, however, pretty sure I have lung cancer just watching Cohle smoking...

    Yeah no nudity in #3. I'm enjoying it too. It moves slow but that's ok with me.

    I feel like the story really progressed in Ep3.

    I'm really enjoying this show, which is strange for me because it is really slow and methodical pace.

    So, wait, was I the only one that saw Woody's wife semi-nude in this last episode? Maybe it was wishful thinking but I though when he said he didn't know what he was doing, she kissed him and they went into a sex scene?

    Anyway, still liked the girlfriend better...but she is no more. She was only slated for the first 3 episodes. :(

    I really like the story, too. We have to wait for two weeks for the next installment.

    I didn't see anything in that sex scene that would not be seen in a bikini...

    As to the girlfriend, it seems that once she...ahem...did his thing a little, that was his line in the sand...it's a darn shame, too.
