    They really should have kept it in the miniseries category. I have no idea what they were thinking. McConaughey for SURE would have beat Benedict Cumberbatch. Easily.
    I guess they wanted the exposure and buzz... and if they actually WON against BB, well....

    But I feel bad that the performances by McConaughey and Harrelson could not be rewarded more tangibly. They were that good. And yeah, Cumberbatch is good, but this was a step beyond.

    Way beyond. It wasn't even close. I was mildly miffed and I usually don't care about awards shows but they were amazing.

    Those characters include a world-weary detective (Farrell), a dogged sheriff (McAdams), a soldier-turned-cop (Kitsch) and a veteran crook (Vaughn). Pizzolatto says that having a four-person, as opposed a two-person, ensemble necessitated a shift in the show’s structure.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Since each seasons is its own storyline, you can just watch this season from scratch without missing anything. Season 1 is self-contained.

    1/3 excited, 1/3 wary, 1/3 pessimistic. Not sure how it can surpass season 1, but keeping my fingers crossed.

    Default Season 2 has started

    Anyone watch the opener yet? (It just aired last night.)

    Reactions have been mixed but extreme - either you like it or you don't. Since I had already come to the realization it was not going to be like last season, I've been taking it on its own terms and so far have enjoyed it.

    I like the tone, the grit, the anchoring shots (lots of views to get a sense of the wide open and sometimes barren landscape). I also like the music choices + the opening credits sequence. The whole show feels satisfyingly bleak. I think the actors are all fine; Vaughn might be the least believable performance, but again, I was expecting him to be the weakest link. He's acceptable in his role so far. Farrell and McAdams seem to be nailing things; Kitsch hasn't had a lot to work with yet.

    "This is my least-favorite life..." is pretty haunting.

    I keep forgetting how tall David Morse is. I hope he gets more air time, he's a favorite character actor of mine. I just did a height check on him and Vaughn, Vaughn edges him out (he's 6'4", Vaughn is 6'5"). Then it's fun to see them around Rachel McAdams, who is 5'4".
