Discuss True Detective

You'd think that with a popular TV series, this forum would have all kinds of post. There has been no one posting anything, and the premiere of season 3 was last night. This place ought to be poppin'.

Oh well, maybe one day tmdb.com will reach imdb's traffic.

Really nailed it Invidia!

Also just checked and in this area ON DEMAND has 2 EPISODES of S3 available now.

So apparently what Salt & Limes watched last night must have also be the 2ND EPISODE of TD???

Which also means the first eppy of the show was first aired LAST SUNDAY???

Which probably also means S&L hasn't seen the first episode of it yet either and incorrectly assumed the 2nd one was the first one???

Actually, the first 2 episodes of season 3 aired on Sunday 1/13/2019. They decided to air the first 2 episodes the same night.

In entertainment, like in life, good things happen when we learn from our public mistakes. At least that seems to be the moral of the story for Nic Pizzolatto, the driving force behind HBO’s “True Detective” anthology TV series, which premiered the *first two episodes of the third season on Sunday, January 13. *

Yes I too wish more traffic. Bummed. Love reading many thoughts on shows

Honestly, I was so completely turned off by season 2 that I have completely forgotten about this series. How has this season been so far? Worth for me to sign up my HBOGO account?

Yes MN this season has been EXCELLENT so far, and, imo, it's also worth it to sign up if that's what you need to do.

It also looks like there's more than just one character or the ONE detective who is dealing with certain ISSUES that involve children and one's relationship with them.

In other words, it also looks like there's at least 3 or 4 characters who are dealing with very similar or the same kind of ISSUES.

But that probably also won't occur to you until you get HALF WAY through the story to EP 4.

Here's the GIST of it:

DECTECTIVE WAYNE HAYES (PURPLE HAYES) has ISSUES with his MISSING daughter

TOM PURCELL has a MISSING daughter named JULIE.

The TRASH MAN also has 2 MISSING children.

Mr. HOYT (who we haven't met yet) had a GRAND CHILD and now runs an OUTREACH ORGAINIZATION for KIDS.

In the last eppy there was also a VERY TRIPPY scene where PURPLE HAYES (who also served 2 TOURS in VIET NAM) had a bunch of VIETNAMESE GHOSTS standing behind him. His job when he was over there was also to TRACK and HUNT them DOWN in the JUNGLE (where he SCALPS them) before the other US soldiers went into the area.

So that's also the reason why the GHOSTS were there HAUNTING him.

Ok, I trust your tastes Invidia. There is a reason why we keep bumping into each other on movie boards since the IMDB days. grin . I will sign up for it tonight and start watching. I was going to sign up HBO for Game of Thrones but that isn't until April but I will give this a whirl. I really liked the first season but the second season was hot garbage.
