"True Detective Season 3 <—- Binge or bust"


          

Netflix has me so spoiled with consuming as little or as much of a series at one time that I’m actually pissed I’m gonna have to watch this season over a two month spaN.

One....miserable.....week...at...a...time.. I’m just too hyped for this shit!,

Any chance HBO will get with the times and start to release full seasons at once through their HBO GO platform???

Gave the web time to dig into some of the references of each episode. That concept didn't really apply to Season 2.

Part of the fun was having to wait and guess for a week. Sweet sweet torture

the storytelling and narrative line up so well and so precisely when you do it all in one hit. made me appreciate it a bit more.

I didn't give Game of Thrones a shot (and somehow missed ALL the spoilers) until I think right around the start of season 4, and I really enjoyed how intimately familiar I was with all the plots in motion but then that season was a great year for the suspense that comes with waiting a week.

Same with True Detective, I shrugged it off for whatever reason until right before the season finale when hype was at an all-time high all over the internet, so I binged the full season right up to the broadcast time for the finale...which was awesome since I didn't have to wait two months to be kinda let down by how it all ended.

I watched Succession week by week though and I have to say it was a great pleasure to see that show get better and better and better right up to the finale, it was like a fantastic dessert after a long week every time.

This early theme that the women in Hays life - if not people he’s close to generally, like his partner - have used his suffering and memory issues to their own personal gain. The Ringer’s recaps point to a lot of references to works involving yellow kings, unspeakable evils, Carcossa and other things that defined lots of season one. Will be curious to see how that develops, hopefully subverting several of those allusions as it goes.

Ali is awesome, loving Dorff and Scoot as well. I never saw Halt and catch fire but every little role I’ve seen him in had me wanting more.

One theory that caught my eye skimming the reddit reaction thread was the idea that Hays’ daughter may have died and he can’t remember / has blocked that out, which is what frustrates his son so much about that moment at dinner. It’s definitely track with what it’s like to deal with parents fighting dimentia. Adding to that, what if his wife isn’t dead but simply left him due to his obsession with the case and inability to move on once he retired and she found her own success?

I want more. Now!

Obviously Prince Ali is owning this shit. But they're doing a very good job at setting the tone, creating an atmosphere, and not crowding shit too much.

wife and I first noticed him on that show 'The 4400', dug him on that show first and he's obviously been KILLIN it ever since. Dude ALLWAYs brings that 'something extra' to ANY project.... not in an overt 'look at ME!' kinda way, but rather in an understated/subtle yet still profound/powerful/memorable way. Still my favorite part of Luke Cage season 1....

so yeah, we're all-in on True Detective 3 so far...
