First: I’m not a big fan of Harrelson or McConaughey. So that’s a turnoff for me. Second: I hate blue ray discs that can’t remember where you left off when you stop play.

I did like the raw drama, the gritty plot, the daunting situations, the scenery and the music. I’ll give it 3 ½ stars for those points.

Best series I've seen since Breaking Bad. Woody Harrelson & Matthew McConaughey were fantastic and I don't usually like the latter's actors work. Brilliant, needed to watch next episode each time until the end.

Brilliant, well-acted and thought provoking. My attempt to slowly savor this show was unsuccessful. Addictive in the best possible way!

This is almost without a doubt the best performance that Harrelson and McConaughey have ever given. A Time To Kill was probably the only other project I thought Matt did as good a job on. It just doesn't see like they get very good material often. True Detective is just a consistently solid, exceptionally well written, directed, and acted series. This is a serial show for anybody who doesn't know, with each episode feeding into the next. I hate the one-off type shows like CSI, Bones, etc, because they rarely ever develop the same character or plot complexity as serial shows like The Killing or True Detective. Unless a viewer were to find the subject matter offensive (this season deals with women & child rape, torture, and murder), it's hard to believe anybody would dislike this series.

This series tends to focus as much on the characters & their own personal dramas as the actual crime the plot centers on. In fact at moments I wanted more focus on the crime(s) and it's effects on the victims & community rather than on the detectives personal lives. I hate to say it, but there we're times where this series felt a bit like it was about Harrelson & McConuaghey being Actors with a definite capital A (seeing that these 2 were executive producers, this makes sense). I'd say if your into drama & like crime shows then this would be for you. But if you like crime shows more than dramas, this series may be a bit lacking but still passable entertainment.

Is this the best show on television, EVER! I'll leave that for you to decide. I, obviously, loved it. Well written, well acted, I suppose its what we expect from an HBO series. But this one is even a cut above the rest.
