This year’s genre television gave us high highs and low lows—sometimes on the same show! In no particular order, we’ve rounded up the year’s best moments, along with some of the absolute worst. SPOILERS AHEAD.
True Detective’s chaotic, absurd second season wrapped up last night, but if you didn’t watch—or gave up early into the show’s run—we collected the best scenes from the entire season into a neat, two-minute compilation. This is all you really need to know.
19. “That’s one off the bucket list. Mexican standoff with actual Mexicans.”
For weeks, fans have been analyzing every frame of the True Detective season two intro in the hopes of learning something about the show. Last night, it actually paid off.
The second episode of True Detective ended on a massive cliffhanger, making much of last week interminably frustrating for addicts like me. Fans were able to stop holding their breath last night when things finally played themselves out last night in the third episode. But it wasn’t an easy resolution.
The second episode of True Detective went out with a big, big bang last night. I have no idea how to start processing the explosiveness of its ending without spoiling the entire thing, so I’ll just say: if you haven’t watched it yet and don’t want to know what happened, stop reading this right now.
I never really did care for Family Circus. Something about those strange children, with their gaping maws and their coal-black eyes…
As much as I enjoyed True Detective, I couldn't spend more than a couple of minutes in the company of Matthew McConaughey's Rustin Cohle without going completely insane. Pete Holmes demonstrates why.
Who would have thought that pulling key dialogue from the first season of HBO's True Detective (which ended last night) and matching it up with Looney Tunes, the results would be pretty neat.
This PlayStation Vita commercial is nearly two years old. If you live in the United Kingdom you've probably seen it before (I don't, and haven't). I post it tonight, though, because of who made the clip: Cary Fukunaga.
You all about that hit show True Detective on HBO, right? They solve crimes. They talk all the time and get on each other's nerves. They meet some weird folks. They're a dog and a rabbitty thing. No, wait…
What's gonna happen on True Detective? Who's the Yellow King? What's Rust been up to all these years? Your guess is as good as mine. If you DO have predictions, I hope you'll share them here, and also check out this great Wired feature breaking down some of the most popular theories.
Do you watch True Detective? You should be watching True Detective. It's really, really good. It's on Sundays on HBO, and they're just over halfway through the first season. I thought I'd see if anyone out there is watching it, and if so, what you think.
