    fgg...me either...but I hate waiting 7 days to find out what's coming next.

    Are the two one in the same, is the theory of dissociative identity order correct? We will see.

    I keep going back and forwards on who the two detectives in 2012 are after - Hart or Cohle. Considering its only got 4 eps left, should be interesting to how it pans out.

    Oh, wow, D'jinn, I'm so thick, I hadn't considered that they might be going after one of them!

    Loved the latest episode, such intense scenes! And Hart getting in deep shit with the missus and the mistress, about time!
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    The first two episodes were really slow and a bit boring but the last two..wow. And although I despite McConaughey (and I hope he won't win an Oscar this year) he is doing such a great job here.

    It's weird and truly scary. I wouldn't go too deep on this one. A 'fan' I will not be.

    It may not be - they could just be wanting to get a first person view of the events, but just get the feeling that they after either one of them for something. Whether to find out if they botched the first investigation/ got the wrong guy/ one of them is doing it, I dont know.

    Loved ep.4 - and while it could be a little gimmicky, that tracking shot at the end was excellently done. Just am so glad they're fast tracking the eps over from the states so I've ep. 5 to watch tonight

    ETA: that I09 article! Knew the whole Yellow King thing was somehow familiar, just didn't know what from.

    Im on the fence on the weird shit that crops up - considering the unreliable narrators, I wouldn't be surprised if at least some of the weirdness (the bird spiral etc) were a continuation of Cohle hallucinations.

    I'm not a fan of McConaughey either, but he is doing an amazing job on this show. He is creating a very, very vivid character. What I find interesting is that he seems a lot more animated and less spacey when being interviewed by the two detectives, than in the past when he is teamed with Harrelson. Almost like he snapped out of his affectless haze, but is still the bleak quasi-nihilist that he always was.

    We have only caught up through episode 3, but I liked the producers' explanation of Harrelson's and McConaughey's characters, and the ironic parts about them. Particularly, Cohle's feelings about religion. Basically, they said that he is an agnostic/atheist, but he believes in a transcendent plane. Something like that. And that while he doesn't believe in religion, he searches through various religions and works of philosophers to try to come to grips with an understanding of how we fit into this world.

    Good show last night, dismissed MM and WH are one person with dual personalities. The interview between Maggie and the two investigators was convincing. Two more episodes, how will end?

    "If you get the opportunity, you should kill yourself."

    Rust and Maggie...geez. I always suspected something would happen between them, but that was just...sad.

    I still have no clue how this will end, but feel like once it does, I should go back and watch it again.

    I'm definitely going to re-watch the episodes. In a show as saturated as this, it's easy to miss little details, even a color of someone's shoes (Breaking Bad was notorious with this regarding the color of Walter's shirt).

    And at least there are only 8 episodes to get through, not 5 seasons...!
