Got HBO weekend before last. Binge watched True Detective and the first season of Game of Thrones since. Good stuff.

Very curious to see what is going to come of season 2 of True Detective.

Well, after a couple of false starts for me, I finally got through the series this weekend.

It really could have used subtitles for the whispery mumbles of McConnaghey and the "shlursh" from Harrelson (e.g., Sho here'sh what I'm tryin' to shay to you ...").

I predict several nominations/awards for these guys for great acting.

I had subtitles on for most of the episodes as yes, a lot of dialogue is muddled (and a lot of it is very obtuse, so I wanted to get the full gist of what they were talking about). I also found it slow the first few episodes, but I thought it picked up nicely with the episode where they were bringing in the drug dealer into the equation and they had the big shootout.

Just a little thread bump - I didn't watch this when it was on because I was so behind on everything else, but I watched it all in the past week.

Damn. Great show. McConaughey and Harrelson absolutely killed it. I did feel like the show lost a little something once they kept it completely in the present day, but by that point I was so into it that I didn't care.

I watched like the last 5 episodes of this show over the weekend. I thought it was pretty good too. Once McConaughy went undercover with the biker gang, it really got awesome.

That was the turning point for me as well. That episode was totally awesome. I was close to pulling the plug before that one. IRC the next episode was only so so, but from that point on it was great.
