@King of Carrot Flowers the third Is it even low-key? He's always seemed like a really good dude to me. He just gets a bad rap because he's passionate on the basketball court.

@Legendary_Dork @dollarbillrussell @TempBoy Brandon I don't even know what I'd say the best film was this year. Her and The Master were probably the last two great movies I saw. I'm still blown away by how good the Fargo series was.

@Legendary_Dork @dollarbillrussell @TempBoy Brandon Except no one with a valued opinion is calling Godzilla the movie of the year. That's just like you COULD say Backstreet Boys are the best music group of all time. You could, but you'd be wrong and no one would take you seriously.

@Legendary_Dork @TempBoy Brandon If you genuinely think Guardians of the Galaxy is the type of movie that deserves best of the year honors then your opinion on movies doesn't count. There's usually a pretty big difference between a movie being fun and an all-time great.

@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] @ThunderWins @Crow I don't understand why everyone is sleeping on Golden State. They had one of the best defenses in the league last season and a wealth of offensive players, with a coach that ran no system. As long as the defense can stay elite, and with Kerr implementing an actual system, that team will be scary. I think it will be OKC, SAS, GSW at the top of the West.

@Tvaddic So who's gonna play instead? I understand going to college players, but I'd think they'd still be selecting stars at that point. I can't imagine USA basketball is planning on running out rosters composed of the Matt Bonners and Steve Blakes of the world.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third TL;DR I felt like they took an extremely complex and intelligent show and completely dumbed it down, while leaving a ton of questions unanswered, so that everything could end neatly.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third I'c currently at work at the hospital where any hospital scenes were supposed to have taken place. However, I never heard anything about them filming at Lafayette General, so I'm guessing they filmed somewhere else and then edited the signs on.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third The show turned from a dark, twisted slow burner into a CSI Miami episode where everything fell into place. McConaughey's character completely abandoned what he'd spent the entire series being. They explained absolutely nothing about the religious cult aspect, for instance, like why that black lady would start freaking out just form the name Carcosa. How had so many people bought into this religious ideology? And seriously, the bad guy ends up being some random dude that was only in the series for 15 seconds up to that point? I understand going for the surprise aspect, but they spent the entire show crafting this extremely detailed mystery, only to seemingly throw it all out of the window in favor of shock value.


If you want to know why people didn't like the final episode, just search for "True Detective finale" on Google. Here's a few examples from an article in The Atlantic:


  • So all that stuff with Marty’s daughter Audrey was just … coincidence? Or a red herring? A way of suggesting that there’s capital-E Evil like whatever went down at Carcosa but also run-of-the-mill perversion that harms kids all the time? Then why have her set up those figurines in precisely that way?
  • We’re supposed to believe that Dora Lange was not just one of Errol’s victims, but was taught about someone called the Yellow King and read passages from Robert Chambers’s The King in Yellow? That’s some pretty involved mythology swirling around that ended up being essentially irrelevant to the case’s resolution.
  • Was that tangent involving former CID colleague Steve Geraci important in any way to solving the case? Please tell me it wasn’t there just for the cynical purpose of having a character insist he was just doing his job, “chain of command,” blahedy-blah.
  • So Rust was depressed and possibly prepared for suicide as he entered this final showdown. But now, despite the heartbreak of feeling he was denied a spiritual reunion with his daughter, despite the guilt of knowing he ran across the killer 17 years ago and that an untold number of victims died since then, now things are different and he can live with himself. Because…?


Once again, I don't think it ruined the series, it was still really good. However, I spent the first seven episodes thinking that it was possibly the best show I'd ever seen, to simply feeling let down by the ending. Don't spend an entire season building up complexity and a distinct atmosphere if you're just going to drop it all the final episode to wrap everything up neatly. I feel like it would've served them well to stretch it another 2-4 episodes and give a little more explanation.

@King of Carrot Flowers the third Is episode 8 the final episode? If so, prepare to be disappointed. It didn't ruin the series, but it turned into a lost episode of CSI Miami.

@The McAdams Bros @Turf is always Greener Kyle Anderson doesn't offer the team enough immediately to warrant giving up a roster spot. One of the whole draws of Huestis was leaving a roster spot open, while still having a guy in the system to develop.
