  • True Detective: Season 3

    Anyone here a fan of HBO's True Detective show? Well, the premiere for Season 3 was out yesterday with two episodes aired. I really like the story and acting. Mahershala Ali's acting is lights out, and the way the plot is unfolding really builds up the tension nicely and keeps me on the edge of the seat. It's going to be a great show to watch!

    Anyone here agree with me?

    I loved Season 1, was bored by season 2, and no longer have HBO, so I will have to wait until it hits Amazon, but I will watch it.

      I agree on all your points. Ali is a joy to watch and the story-telling quite fantastic, with the way they are using three time periods in the same episodes.

          I am going cold on GOT. I loved the books (except for the last one), but the diverging storylines have soured me on the TV series.I'll eventually watch the final season, but I feel no pressing interest.

              No, it puts you in an excellent position to enjoy the series. Having read the books, I can't help but find the HBO series jarring and thin. Frankly, only Peter Dinklage does his character credit, and he has a much smaller role in the series than the character has in the books.

              I would recommend the books; the first in the series is a little rough as Martin gets the setting going, but it is worthwhile.

                Looking forward to watching it via DVR. Liked the first one, did not watch the second because of the poor reviews, have heard good things about this one.

                  I agree. Season 1 was very good. Season 2 was very hard to follow. With major plot twists that seemed to come out of nowhere and make no sense.

                  But you have to give them credit. At least each season is original and not a squeal.

                  Hopefully Season 3 will be better than 2..

                    That's what brings me back to Season 3. Season 2 failed to endear any character to me, and quite frankly the plot lost me, but it stayed true to the format.

                    Season one really dug into me, glaring plot errors and all. We all have a case where you come away feeling like you scraped the surface of something larger. I've watched it three or four times, and will again. Other officers I know have had the same experience.
