Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on January 16, 2014

true-detecTrue Detective is an HBO series or miniseries or something about Louisiana state cops investigating a twisted murder. The general tone seems to be foreboding.

It’s the long-awaited reunion of the male leads of EdTV*, but is sadly missing Jenna Elfman. Several Wire people show up in smaller parts. Michelle Monaghan is also in this, which is nice. It seems like she’s never in anything, but apparently she did a lot of work in 2013 that I just didn’t see.

Anyway, it’s kind of interesting. The case they’re investigating is somewhat intriguing, but mostly Matthew McConaughey’s character’s weirdness is what had my interest. About three times in the first episode, Woody Harrelson says something along the lines of “you can’t say shit like that, it freaks me out.”

* – I have never seen EdTV.
