True Detective S3

After S2 was hammered by critics (I thought it was ok), the first 2 eps of S3 were released last night and the show looks to be back in form. Mahersala Ali is the lead and absolutely killed it, like he does every other role. However, surprised by how good Stephen Dorff was in a supporting role. Itís also a cool idea having the story unfold over 3 difft timelines.

Forgot all about this starting already. Thought it looked really good in the previews, so I'll probably watch the episodes tonight.

This season is much more in line with S1.

I like it so far. A couple things bug me a little. One is a bit of a nitpick but it seems like the director wants all the male characters to talk in a raspy/chainsmoker-voice, which I think is corny. The other, so far the crime plot seems a bit too close to season 1. Perhaps they're playing it safe after season 2 was torn to shreds by viewers and critics.

Also, I hope the Native guy blows those rednecks to sh!t

This week’s episode was uploaded early bc of the SB. This final scene is fantastic. Stephen Dorff holds his own with Ali.

I may have to give it a try. I enjoyed season 1. Season 2, not so much.

Itís not quite on the level of S1 bc thereís no Rust Cohle, but the plotline and overall acting is much more in line with S1 than S2.

Each episode gets better and better. Itís a shame thereís not more people talking about this, bc it is turning into a pretty damn impressive season.

I feel like it's meandering a bit. Weird for a season that's only 8 episodes. I think they could have gotten the story out in 6.

Everyone is accustomed to the NFLX binge fornat. This is a slow burn, but if youíre paying really close attention, thereís almost no wasted screen time. For example, in tonightís episode during the scene where the wife is interviewing the girl at the runaway home, thereís a split second cutaway to the landscaper. If you look at the co name on the truck, youíll realize itís a character weíve seen before, and this could be a giant clue in solving the plot.
