    Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. Looks pretty solid. Starts in January.

    If there is a second season of True Detective, it will tell a different story, with different characters—the plan is for this to be an anthology show, à la American Horror Story. Addicts of America’s standard multiseason series format may be disappointed by this news, but I’ve been convinced for a while now that miniseries—lately rebranded as “limited series”—are TV’s best bet, artistically speaking. So I’m glad that this show will have a beginning, middle, and end over the course of eight episodes. And if HBO had to go down the antihero road again, I’m glad McConaughey and Harrelson are behind the wheel.

    That trailer was pretty awesome. Looks like it's shot really well also, and apparently it's the same director the entire season, so that look and feel should remain the entire time.

    Only thing that bugged me was the "bad guys" line early on. Little too on the nose in this time of "anti-heroes" all over TV.

    Will watch though, love the idea of an anthology series on HBO with these types of creative forces behind it.

    Looks like a good one, but what I'm most excited for is it's possible Alexandra Daddario might show off the goods (1:04 of video).

    :jizz:

    And I just realized that Shameless comes back that night as well. Could be a very good night of TV if True Detective lives up to its potential.

    Seems like it's gonna be really fucking good. When these 2 get involved with an hbo project like this, the expectations should be high.

    I love the idea of it happening over so many years. Interested to see how fast or slow that happens.

    Saw Sepinwall tweet this last night and wondered if it was about True Detective

    Beginning January screener binge. Based on what I’ve seen so far, it’s gonna be an awfully good (and busy) month.

    Then he tweeted this and I figured he had to be

    Matthew McConnaughey is sensational in HBO's "True Detective." Woody Harrelson great too. Remind me again why they don't team up more often?

    Let the hype truly begin! Getting more excited by the day

    :blessed: unless you are Jennifer Lawrence, you pretty much have to get naked to get a role these days.

    Wasn't a fan at all before this year. Completely sold me after Dallas Buyer's Club(good in Mud too), can't wait for this show.

    Nope, seen a good amount of his others(2 for the money, dazed and confused, u-571, lincoln lawyer).

    In love with him, Idris Elba, and Mads Mikkelsen this year; they've been phenomenal.
