Have you started watching True Detective?
With Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson?
If not…what are you waiting for?
This is without a doubt the best new series out there.
Both Matthew and Woody (I think I can refer to them just by their first names 'cause we're tight like that) are brilliant.
Matthew is exceptional. I didn't think this guy could really act until I saw Dallas Buyers Club and this series. Now I think he is unstoppable. His role is a million miles away from the typical stoner boyfriend roles from his RomCom days.
I am addicted to this series. I would have to say this is as good as Breaking Bad and MadMen for me. Those are my favourites of all time, so you know this is pretty special.
Philisophical, character driven intense drama with very dark undertones is how I would describe it.
Here is an example of the profound dialogue you can expect throughout the show,
“I can see your soul at the edges of your eyes. It’s corrosive. Like acid,” he growls. “And I don’t like your face. It makes me want to do things to it…There’s a shadow on you, son.”
One of my favourite bits about the series is the attention to detail starting with the opening sequence which is simply an exquisite piece of artwork all on its own.
Skillful and haunting images with music to match. Just see if this doesn't get the hairs on the back of your neck standing up just a bit…
