    Crap, I heard about this show today and made a mental note to watch it, but I didn't realize it was on HBO.

    It's the only good show on right now. Easily the best intro.

    one of the best shows in many years. im sad theres only 3 episodes left, but im sure theres plenty of rabbit hole to dive into before it ends.

    Started watching it about 20 minutes ago. Been laughing at the banter between McConaughey and Harrelson, it's just too funny.

    When did McConaughey get to be a good actor anyway? I wasn't much impressed with him years ago, then I saw him in Killer Joe a few years ago and was blown away. He really stepped up his game.

    I'm a big fan of Michelle Monaghan, and even Kevin Dunn is in this. Cool.

    Haven't you heard? It's called "the McConaissance". Yes, it's actually a thing.

    But yes, he is amazing in TD. I think it's the most truly comprehensive performance I've seen him give (although I haven't seen Dallas Buyers Club yet). Woody is pretty great too.

    I rather like the show so far. I do yearn for a bit more plot focus, though.

    I kept looking at him in the opening clip of the current time sequence ("OMG? Is that really him?") Yeah, it was. He really seems to be inhabiting someone else's skin. The earlier timeline, he looks a lot more like I know him to be.

    Yeah, in the first episode, i thought the acting was really good in terms of just feeling "real". But I'm not really sure where it's going, why I'm watching those interviews, what they had a falling out over, etc. I find the characters real, so I keep watching, but it's kind of slow right now. Then again, that's like real police work as well. *shrug*

    Still laughing at the metaphysical discussion(s). Marty Hart is just a good ol' boy who loves his fam, local boy serving the law, doing the cop thing; but Cohle is something else. Hart's reactions were just so great (like "WTF? You can't go around spewing this shit everywhere, you're gonna FREAK people out -- what's WRONG with you? And how'd we end up sharing a beat?" etc.)
