Hol up man what Wayne son do with the address? He gave to his snow bunny side piece?

And I thought Wayne was faking with his condition to get some info to see if that was the girl.

If Marshala and Deacon Frost has season 1 story with their backgrounds on the show.
Good season not as epic as season 1 but better than 2.

My thoughts exactly. I actually re-watched season one before this so my expectations were rather high, but I was not terribly disappointed by the acting or plot. His wife is BAD too:pimp:

Had some down time this month and went through each season in consecutive weeks.

S1 some of the greatest television I’ve ever seen. Rust Cohle was well written, exceptionally performed by MM. Tremendous villain reveal in episode 7. That stash house scene looked like one continuous shot. Just incredible television. Loved that the ending wasn’t really happy since there were still others in that video that will never be caught.

S2 was bloated. Lazy way to write off Colin’s character (he wouldn’t still be riding around in that charger or going to visit any family after being on the run for weeks/months & now with $1 mil in his trunk). They never dove deep into Taylor Kitsch’s military background, and him essentially choosing to walk into a potentially fatal ambush over coming out as gay is absurd. A lot of Vince Vaughn’s lines were also written terribly.

S3 was a great return to form. Ali & Dorff had great chemistry. Dorff’s character had some great lines :lol: I’ve loved Carmen Ejogo since she played Coretta Scott King but her character was infuriating at times :lol: she spent a large chunk of the season completely oblivious to how the case affected Wayne. Also at the end I can’t believe Wayne didn’t record something for himself the day prior write more hints on that paper to jog his memory before he went to go see Julie. Didn’t line up with his character at all. Otherwise, exceptional portrayal of how difficult these cases are to deal with.

Deborah Ayorinde tho. My god. I need her.

S4 probably not happening until 2020 at the earliest but I’ll be tuned in if it gets the green light.

It has to be a go right?

Like you said, S1 at is a the top of the genre. This past season was a return to form.

They have something with the anthology format. Take the time in between seasons. Deliver good work. It could never get old.

They should be able to deliver that content every 2 - 3 years. When they get greedy and try to move too fast for the profits is when we get S2.
