Does Rachel McAdams' character eat the booty? The guy she was with was like "I didn't know girls did that!"

it was knife play, a rack of knives and duct tape were on the wall.

I like keeping the tropes of one detective being questioned, and then flashing back that were used last season. Obviously, Farrell is being set up as the Rust equivalent, but that could be a bait and switch.

:facepalm: You're doing that thing where you think too much.

Why the hell did they hire the director of Fast and Furious 3-6 to replace Fukunada?

Only a guy with a thin man's belly would have gone onto imdb to check that out then logged in here to post it. It's a lame observation. Look forward to better from you next week.

I think Farrell's cop could sink to the depths of hell like the Bad Lieutenant. His bad ass-ness in the first episode is surely only a taster. Having him sink without any redemption would be awesome. And what a great character for an actor to play.

I don't think Ferrell is dead. Not enough blood. Still, two episodes in and the pieces are still being shaken out of the box.

 

What is Black Mountain Security?

Why so many Russians?

Does Vince Vaughn know how to emote at all?

Shit though I didn't see that pizzolatto had done a Q&A earlier https://medium.com/@TrueDetective/q-a-with-true-detective-creator-and-showrunner-nic-pizzolatto-8cc72b62c1a

 

He said

 

It’s not, I’m afraid. There’s definitely bad men and hard women, but no secret occult history of the U.S. transportation system. That was a comment from very early in the process, and something I ended up discarding in favor of closer character work and a more grounded crime story. The complexity of the historical conspiracy first conceived detracted from the characters and their reality, I felt, and those characters are ultimately what have to shape the world and story. So I moved away from that.

 

 

 

I had stayed away from all interviews, behind the scenes, trailers and so forth and so I missed it. I was waiting for that stuff damnit.

 

Characters are mildly interesting and cinematography is good, but I feel like a TD season needs that extra.

what is honestly the appeal here? a run-of-the-mill crime procedural is suddenly elevated to "must watch tv" because mcconaughey spouts empty meaningless philisophical twaddle? oh he has a drinking problem but he's actually really smart. those twists and turns of character development are so obvious and trite it fucking puts me to sleep. hes an alcoholic so he has troubles. the other guy is having an affair cause his job is tough. the dude's daughter died so hes a loner who thinks a lot instead. he doesnt own a lot of stuff or w/e. what is original or interesting about ANY OF THIS? This is intro to screenwriting 101. amazed this got on HBO honestly. people are talking about pizzolato as this exciting newcomer. well he's a newcomer thats for fuckin sure. pedestrian writing that tells instead of shows - would also make sense that he was a failing novelist instead of a screenwriter - very poor understanding of visual storytelling other than "character sees something audience doesn't reaction shot" "reverse shot of thing character was reacting to" "roll credits"

 

I'm talking about season 1 obviously. how is season 2 any different

Yeah cause The Wire really suffered from no occult history of Baltimore gangbangers.

 

Character driven drama can be some very rewarding TV.

There's still plenty of weird shit to wrap your head around, and a good mystery is always worth your time - and this is shaping up to be a good mystery.

Of course there will be those who say they can see the plot coming a mile away - if so, please post right now how you think this season will shape out and let's see how prescient you really are.

I'll take a stab at it for the lols:

 

McAdam's character ends up being the most disturbed and ends up plunged fully into the City Planner guy's sex pervert orgy world

 

Vaughn becomes a full on bad guy and gets too deep into it with whoever is behind the murder (probably the police chief guy who's drunk all the time)

 

Kitsch struggles with his past but ends up solving the whole thing

 

not sure I should even mention Farrell as he might be dead already. He'll be the curve ball probably.

 

City planner ended up being involved in a sex cabal with other powerful politicians and gangsters, the cult dad provides girls for their orgies, of which McAdam's becomes one, bringing all her past abuse full circle and she knifes her dad and he bleeds out.

i get a weird feeling from the show the guy who made it is a born again christian possibly, only based on the fact that he seems to find sexuality inherently dark, or at least thats my impression of every time its in the show. The scene of mcadams watching porn online was really strange

yeah, velcro isn't dead. he was prob shot with birdseed or rocksalts.

 

motorcycle guy found out the dead guy vince vaughn worked with was withdrawing 4000$ every month.
