Premiere Particulars: True Detective

true detective 2

After a long year-plus of nervously waiting for the second season of HBO’s True Detective, it finally premiered a little over two weeks ago. I say “nervously” because I think pretty much every fan was on edge about some of the casting choices. I mean, Colin Farrell? Taylor Kitsch? Rachel McAdams? Vince freaking Vaughn?! Continue reading

Has it been a mere two weeks since I last geeked? Maybe. Do I care? Nah brah. Guys, there’s just so much going on right now. Mainly a surge of trailers. I mean, where the heck did all these trailers come from?! We had nothing and/or little scraps of info, and then the last two weeks have just been an explosion! Continue reading

Series Spotlight, Pt. 1

Hiya, folks! Remember when I said I was going to bring you a new post yesterday? Yeah…sorry about that. Haha. Little crazy around here as of late. Anyway, I was originally going to make a top 10 list out of this post, but I think it’s the kind of thing that I could easily make into a regular feature. I have my Song and Screen series for movies, but it doesn’t seem fair that I’m ignoring TV, no? Especially since this week marks the beginning of several shows I’m SUPER excited about (read about those here)! Continue reading

TRUE DETECTIVE: THE ONLY POST YOU NEED TO READ ABOUT SEASON 1

For all of the True Detective info you ever could want.

Isaacs Picture Conclusions

Over the last couple of months a few of us sat around watching TV together and collectively jizzing each week after the conclusion of that week’s episode of True Detective, the phenomenal HBO mini series that brought us the likes of Rust Cohle, The Yellow King and some of the greatest character acting I’ve EVER seen. Once it was all over, we reckoned it would be too time consuming and LONG to try and detail all eight episodes so we sent BRIAN out for a carton of smokes, two suitcases of LONE STAR beer, three bottles of Clan MacGregor Scotch Whisky and some potted meat. When he finally fucking got back, we drew up a fire, did some shots (body shots???…….maybe……) and did some writin’ about what we thought of the first season. THANK YOU to everyone who participated!!! I know that was a long commute for some of you!!!

So I usually try to address TV premieres very soon after the original air date, but I’m a little late on this one…heck, it premiered a month ago; “late” is putting it politely. Basically, I hadn’t even heard about this show until I started seeing positive reviews for it, and now that I finally decided to check it out, here we are—four episodes in. Continue reading
