TRUE DETECTIVE - Season 3
« on: January 14, 2019, 07:35:57 AM »
Anyone planning to watch? I watched the first episode last night....it was pretty good. It has a very cool vibe going on....definitely more of a vibe in the line of season 1.

The way they are telling this story is pretty neat....it's taking place in three different stages of time. There are (2) episodes available to view but I got sleepy.

I'll definitely watch, but I don't think I am gonna renew my HBO sub until the whole season is done. Netflix has spoiled me, where I just want to watch the whole season at once.

Totally get it. I think it's spoiled a ton of people. It's nice to be able to watch a whole season of 'whatever'. But, I don't mind going back to the 'normal' way of watching every now and then

Honestly I gave up on S02 and never finished it. It never really clicked for me like S01 but i'll give this a chance.

As I mentioned....I've only watched (1) episode BUT.....it has the 'feel' of season 1. The way they're telling this story gives me the sense that this is going to be a pretty good season.

Season 2 felt 'forced'....the story was pretty bland.....it just never felt 'real'. Season 1 felt 'real' and that is what I sense from even just one episode of season 3. It feels 'real' and it's grabbed me right off the bat.

I didn't watch but I plan on checking it out.

I like both, sure it's fun to watch an entire show quickly, but also some shows are just great to watch and over analyze until the next episode.  Game of Thrones is a good one and so is True Detective.  There's typically a lot going on so I like to rewatch and then read into it.  You typically don't take the time to do that when you binge watch and therefore often miss out of the small details.

Yep. This is one of the downsides of the binge watch. SO much info. at once it all kind of muttles together and you may miss some of the finer nuances of the writing/acting etc. etc.

Saw the first two episodes and while it's trying to get back to the feel of Season 1 the leads just aren't as interesting as Rusty. The story feels a bit tame at the moment and I'm not really drawn to the backstories. I'll likely check out another episode or two but if it doesn't really pick up I'm not sure I'll continue with it.

I enjoyed the first two episodes. After the first episode I though they were loosely basing the story on the West Memphis Three case but after the second episode that seemed less certain. Interested to see what develops.

Aw man....I’m the opposite. Not that I think that there’s a character on the show that’s on par with Rust Cohle.....that was a performance that will never be matched.....but I do think the story is interesting and the actors/actresses are doing an excellent job.

The tone of the show is much better than season 2. I accept the fact that Season 1 is the gold standard to which any season will be compared to....but this season thus far has held it’s own quite well.

The way they let Wayne Hays break the 4th wall during the flashbacks, was that something they did in previous seasons because I can't remember but somehow it's feels familiar?

First two episodes were amazing, Ali and Dorff's acting was flawless. I'm a little hesitant to speculate anything on how events unfold since I find most of the joy of watching this show is not having that much of an idea of how things will unfold. I like the story tidbits we have so far and am very intrigued with the timelines. Great start so far.

No....this show hasn’t done that. But I like it.....it drives home the fact that we’re seeing a memory and not ‘reality’......which also adds the aspect of everything we’re seeing there may not be 100% accurate. Which...I think is an underlying theme. A lot has been made of memories and recalling those memories.
