    Anyone watching this? It has Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey (this first season). The last episode was one of the best things I've seen on TV, maybe ever...

    E! OnlineBest. Scene. Of. The. TV. Season.

    As if True Detective wasn't already one of the best new series of the year, they had to go and top themselves in the Sunday, Feb. 9 episode, when, in a stunning display of filmmaking, they ended their fourth episode, "Who Goes There," with a six-minute scene that was filmed in one take. Yes, you read that right: a six-minute long shot of a robbery-gone-wrong, with Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) running away from the scene of a failed drug bust through a housing project into Hart's (Woody Harrelson) car.

    They're doing a good bit of character development on the two main characters and it paid great dividends tonight.

    It's currently getting a 9.4/10.0 from users on IMDB and is ranked third for TV shows by rating!: http://www.imdb.com/search/title?title_type=tv_series&user_rating=9.0,10

    I thought it was just going to be a sort of copy of "The Killing." And it was. But the first episode wasn't bad, actually. That's all I saw on the "free" HBO weekend last month.

    Amazing show! Brilliant script, great characters...and reminds me a lot of Hannibal.

    It's also cool seeing Matthew McConaughey play a not-so-McConaugh-ey role (plus he's hot too).
