As for the "man with the scars" and spaghetti monster description...tying in with the school who Tuttle (wearing a yellow tie in the preview, btw) supported.

Basically, I have no clue what is happening.

As far as Cohle or Hart being in on the killings, I don't buy it.

In one of the "Inside True detective" pieces on HBO, writer Nick Pazzolto (sp?) said he would not classify either as "anti-hero". He said he would call them both genuine Heros because they really are just trying to do what's right.

is this show like one of those "epic mini series events" that HBO does occassionally like JOHN ADAMS and that show David Simon did before THE WIRE - or is this going to last a few years instead of a few weeks?

One story line per year with new actors every year.

so hypothetically they could have George Clooney and Denzel as the leads next year with a different storyline and no MM or WH and it still will be called TRUE DETECTIVE?

Right. It is an anthology series, similar to American Horror Story.

 

“One of the reasons I wanted to do an anthology format is I like stories with endings,” Pizzolatto said Thursday (Jan. 9). “I like a good third act. And continuing serial dramas, they tend to have really good beginnings and really long middles and then sort of have to hustle to develop an ending. And I like the idea of telling a self-contained story.”

Damn this show is deep. Marty's oldest daughter is a big key. She is marked by the Yellow King it seems...whoever that is. She made that weird spin wheel symbol painting and those sex drawings so somehow she has been corrupted. Does remind me somewhat of Frailty and the Gods Hand Killer.

Just watched the first two episodes again. This series is meant to be rewatched. There is so much to pick up on after learning what's going on.

Watching the post show on HBO ON Demand is cool...You learn things you may not know.

One wow point: Cole drinking the beer is significant. It makes anything Cole says inadmissable in court.

Yep, I saw that segment too.

I didn't catch it the first time, but when Cohle ask for the beer he says, "What, you want this to be admissible?".

Up to Ep 5. Didn't quite get the end church scene or at least what it was inferring.

Awesome show though. Their dialogue in the car rides is fantastic.
