    Just watched episode 4 last night: outstanding. I have to say, its making a lot of shows look like a load of amateur nonsense.

    CZ: it’s HBO in the US, airs Sunday night, so you can pick it up Monday morning…. erm…. from a number of websites.

    Not heard of this but now I’m intrigued.

    erm…. from a number of websites.

    Just found one πŸ™‚ that has this and about 150 other shows! Thankfully I only have the time to watch the odd episode here and there.

    yep – great, great show

    Had to rewatch the closing sequence from ep 4 immediately it was so good – 6 minute continuous steady cam shot

    Pretty good show all in all. Just about to watch Ep 5 πŸ™‚

    Their first suspect is a right freak – looks like the result of an unholy communion between the lead banjoist of the Hillbilly Pig Buggerers and a weregimp.

    Sky box set and ready to record. Really looking forward to this series.

    Just watched ep5. It’s shaping up, getting more intense.

    Love the lighting, the music. It’s awesome.

    Agreed, new game of thrones starts soon – not sure I can be bothered with it now I’m hooked on TD.

    It’s my favourite show on at the mo… McConaughey and Harrelson are both terrific.
    Wife and I have given up on a few shows recently, but this is a keeper πŸ™‚

    Well having only got as far as 4 so far I was wondering how they could keep going. Down to the pits of Hell it is them – Can’t wait πŸ™‚ Though one thing I can’t see is how to hit the usual quota of 5 seasons – maybe the new rule is do one and do it well.

    Only watched a couple of episodes (recording from Sky Atlantic). Excellent stuff. McConaughey and Harrelson work so well together. I’ve always been a big fan of both and I’m glad to see McConaughey get back into roles like this and Dallas Buyers Club (in which by all accounts he is excellent, even though I haven’t seen it) rather than some of the rom com shite he’d been doing. Nobody does southern drawl like those two. πŸ™‚

    No chance of there being another season. It’s all about what happened in ’95 and ’02. Like you say, do one and do it well.

    Watched Ep 6 last night……. blummin amazing. Mrs Batfink is hooked as well.

    Apparently (might have read it around here somewhere) “true detective” is a theme/format/style – subsequent seasons are going to have different characters in different cities etc etc.

    I have to say, not sure how they are going to follow MM and WH – hopefully they are setting the standard for who comes next. As long as it’s not Nicolas bloody Cage.

    Interesant. But S2 and beyond would have to go some to live up to S1, especially bringing in new characters etc.

    Nothing on IMDB about any more which is my normal go to for “it’s going to happen” stuff

    I refer my honourable friend to 8 posts back πŸ˜‰

    EDIT: That’s the limit of my spoilerising.

    Only watched the first episode on Sky atlantic but It’s fair to say Im hooked. Also add Ray Donovan and Southland to the recent crop of top notch US dramas and you can see why folks rave about U.S Tv.

    ok, fair enough!

    Not exactly the BBC news website, but:

    Season 2?

    So many levels going on in this, Soon as ep 8 is finished I’m going to watch the lot again! πŸ˜€

    looking like 7 and 8 are going to be explosive!

    Yep – reckon the last 2 episodes are going to be huge

    Definitely going to rewatch the whole thing after the season is done

    I love the fact that subsequent seasons will feature different plot, setting and characters – it means anything could happen to any of the characters in this season

    So it’s an 8 episode series then?

    Quite unusual for a US series, it means they had a full story from the beginning rather than writing the first few episodes and waiting to see how it does before completing the plot.

    I have been waiting for it to finish so I can mainline the whole series in a weekend.

    Best TV show I’ve watched since Breaking Bad. Really enjoying it. Wondering how it can all get tied up nicely with only two episodes left though…

    Also add … Southland to the recent crop of top notch US dramas and you can see why folks rave about U.S Tv.

    How many times do I have to mention Southland? It’s on the last series now, I think. Brilliant stuff.

    Watch e02 last night. It’s tense. Well acted. Gripping stuff.

    With that to watch and the second season of Banshee to get through…. Some decent TV for a change.

    Banshee was a just one writer’s big wnak fantasy I thought. Atrocious.

    I didn’t know anything about this series until a friend of mine from school posted a very long steady cam shot from episode four on Facebook. It’s over six minutes long.

    Turns out he is the (steady)cam operator for the show and that long take in episode four is his work.

    Pretty cool huh.

    I knew when I saw the intro with The Handsome Family singing Far From any Road…that it would be amazing…and it is…

    Oh yeah! Absolutely loving it, a superb piece of work. Just exactly the sort of thing that Rennie and Brett would jump at having one of their songs attached to.

    I’ve watched episode 8 today and without going into detail spoilers etc but I feel let down.
    Conclusion to the case was great I just felt that the post case mop up was unnecessary anyone else feel the same?

    It’s been great TV but ending came off as Dexter weak (ok not that bad but weak) instead of Breaking Bad awesome.

    Was Ep8 the final episode??

    The Yellow King, mentioned in the programme, is available from Amazon for Kindle for free; it’s actually called The King In Yellow, by Robert W Chambers.

    Yep Ep8 is final episode.
