    All the character development is why I love it - like a slow burn - cant wait to see what happens.

    This mafukka only has 8 episodes? In a season, or there wont be season 2?

    I understand they got some actors who aren't exactly TV people, but C'mon. 1 season?

    That's the point man. They may have another season but it will be a new story and characters and everything. Think "American Horror Story". But this way they can get sweet actors like Matthew McConaghuey and not shitty washed up ones like Gary Sinise and other guys on TV shows. It's a great idea to bring in some huge talent for a single season of television where they are the stars. Also just new stories and new everything every year or so. That's refreshing and nice.

    i am about to start season 4. Stringer just got killed so my current favorite character is Slim Charles.

    The Wire was written and created by a retired Baltimore PD detective.

    I don't think this show is slow at all.

    I just want to know what the guy walking around with the machete and the gas mask is going to do.

    This show is wild.

    BOOM!

    Hook, line and sinker.

    I am all about this idea. Hope this starts a new trend, and I hope John Malkovich gets on the screen as much as possible before he dies.

    I think Woody Harrelson is the killer. With something so slow there has to be a big twist ending.

    we are creatures that should not exist by natural law...

    We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self,

    that accretion of sensory experience and feelings,

    programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody,

    when in fact everybody's nobody...

    I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming.

    Stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction -

    HBO invested a ton on something they know is good. They're not wasting a show to go against the Super Bowl.

    Also, each show will pick up new viewers. You're not picking anyone up when it's running against the Super Bowl.

    Why couldn't he have killed someone back when everything was taking place and then kill again in 2012. I still haven't watched the 3rd episode but in the first 2 it kind of paints Mcconaughey as a bit crazy and makes watchers think he's probably the killer but that would be too easy and predictable. Also when they're being interviewed in 2012 it seems like the cops are more then just asking them about the case and more interrogating them because they know something and think Macconauhey is the killer but its really Harrelson.

    hmm would they interview them like that though? Rust is given beers and has a knife - surely that wouldnt be allowed if he was suspect?! and Hart is just being interviewed in a side office in his department by looks of it.

    Long shot guess that Hart's father-in-law is the killer! Somebody on IMDB posted saying that Hart's wife is involved in some way!

    I think both of the detectives in modern day are covering for Maggie Hart.....
    There are subtle hints that she is having a tough time psychologically
    Her daughters are somehow witnessing the satanic rituals, and drawing pictures of it....the daughter distinctly draws a picture of a guy with a beard having sex similar to the "spaghetti monster"
    Cohle is attracted to her, because he is hunting her

    In the first episode she knew where the body was before the actual press conference...she claims she saw it on the news.

    She chastises her daughter with a cryptic "you are turning something beautiful into something ugly"....at least I thought it was cryptic
