I just dont fucking understand..

I watched the first 40 minutes and shut it off.

A lot of talking happened, they went to the crime scene, now theyre after a murderer.

OH WOW!! BIG FUCKING DEAL. What pulled someone in on episode 1? what was it? That 2 detectives are LOOKING FOR A MURDERER that does weird shit to the corpses?

Why would anyone move onto episode 2? I know people only watch it because people say its good. Yeah sure maybe it does get good at episode 4 or 5 but who in their right fucking mind would move on after episode 1?

What if you were on vacation watching TV and you were just channel switching and you landed on it and the channel was some random canadian channel. Episode 1.

are you really telling me after watching that first episode you would go home and search up episode 2?

this makes no god damn sense. Are you really telling me you were pulled in on episode 1 of 2 detectives looking for a murderer in some RED NECK TOWN?

jesus.. fucking christ.. man

Don't bother watching The Sopranos or The Wire, then.

how? how could anyone watch 2 detectives looking for a murderer out in the country and think its unique or special? I watched breaking bad because of its storyline of a teacher trying to cook meth and teaming up with a young punk. Thats unique. How the hell does someone watch 2 detectives doing their job and think its a good show?

I didn't think it was anything special until i actually progressed through the series. I personally love cat and mouse games with serial killers in detective shows, so that kept me hooked. I love Se7en, Zodiac, Hannibal, etc. Not to mention Matthews acting was phenomenal. The only person getting in the way of Matthews emmy is Cranston.

So you couldn't give the show a fair chance? 40 minutes? Why not finish the whole first Episode at least? You can't even say you watched Episode 1.

I literally just finished watching Season 1 for the first time, that is what I have been doing for the last 8 hours. The show was good but overrated. So funny thinking about the people wetting their panties for Season 2 here in OT, was this the ground breaking shit everybody was taking about? Top notch television by HBO but I was expecting more.

I didn't like it. The acting was good but I had no idea what was going on or what the heck anyone was saying due to Woody Harrelson not possessing the ability to talk like he doesn't have something in his mouth and the fact that MM's character talked like he was half asleep so I had no clue what either of them was saying and I got tired of rewinding every 10 secs to try and find out.

It has an 85% on Rotten Tomatoes though, shouldn't you love it?

also lol'd at calling it "overrated". Just going to disregard all your opinions from now on

Why should I love it if it has an 85% on Rotten Tomatoes?

Why lol'd? I didn't say the show was bad, I say it has been overly praised. Now if I don't think True Detective is the greatest thing since sliced bread there must be something wrong with me, figure that.

The first episode is probably the worst one of the series, the same thing goes for game of thrones, you have to get passed the first episode to just understand all the characters, it get ALOT better.
