Fucking show keeps getting better and better. I just finished last night's episode and god damn does this shit get intense. I am still shitting myself over the long take in episode four.

My wife started watching it. Not really feeling it. It's a bit too depressing for me. We're 2 episodes in.

Haha yeah it's pretty dark. Stick with it though, it doesn't exactly lighten up but the tempo goes up a bit and it gets super tense in the next few episodes.

At least make it through episode four, that one is easily my favorite so far.

It's on my "to watch" list.

Check out Black Sails on STARZ, it's a prequel to Treasure Island. Four episodes in and it is one of my favorites. They signed it for a second season before the first episode even aired.

I dig true detective a lot!

My wife got the chance to see 30 minutes of the first episode 2 weeks before the premiere (she edits promos in HBO latinoamerica) and tip me to DVRit

This last episode was like "not penny's boat" to me. top production values; last week 6 minute secuence (the drug house heist) was a master piece in cinematography. looking forward to find out more about the yellow king.

Black Sails is a cool character/actor driven series about the pirates of the caribean with real and fictional characters... with a spectacular intro credits sequense by imaginary forces (masters of the credits sequences)

...

so yeah I'm a post production nerd

That six minute long take at the end of episode four is what put the show over the edge from great to great to amazing in my opinion. It was just done absurdly well and that scene was so tense on its own merits, throwing that in there just made it nuts.

Really like it so far. I'm a big McConaughey fan though so I might be a little biased. I like the depressing/Louisiana/deep south thing it's got going for it. It's like watching a TV show based off of Eyehategod or Crowbar songs

Its basically just two great actors 'chewing up the scenery' and its awesome.

Best new crime show I've seen since 'Hannibal'

Really like Hannibal too. Shouldn't the new season be starting soon? (looked it up, Feb 28th) Also like Bates Motel series. New season of that is coming March 3rd.
