I just watched the first episode. I loved it. Just well put together all around. Ali was phenomenal, especially in the scene where he finds the boy.January 20, 2019 at 12:54 am #1202740377
Episode Title: “The Big Never”
Synopsis: Hays recalls his early romance with Amelia, as well as some cracks in their relationship that surfaced after they married and had children. Ten years after the Purcell crimes took place, new evidence emerges, giving Hays a second chance to vindicate himself and the investigation.

The mystery is deepening and taking some interesting turns. This was a nice showcase for Stephen Dorff. I kept wondering in the premiere why Roland wasn’t around in the middle timeline, and here is the reason. It says so much about this era in general and the toll of the Purcell case that Roland has progressed in this way but Wayne hasn’t. Mahershala is just fantastic here. Every time frame has him in a distinctive character pitch, which I find fascinating. It looks like Carmen Ejogo will get more to do than I previously thought as the token female “lead.” And as I suspected earlier, there’s more to Scoot McNairy than meets the eye. I’d watch out for him in supporting actor. Pizzolatto’s writing is less ponderous so far this season, but definitely his own style is still easily detected.January 21, 2019 at 7:27 am #1202741704
“The Big Never” was really good. My grade: A. It’s definitely better than season 2.January 27, 2019 at 2:43 am #1202750049
Episode Title: “The Hour & the Day”

Loved the fourth episode. For me this is on par with the stunning debut season. Will this run for Drama Series like the 1st or Miniseries? What do you think the chances are for True Detective in all categories at the Emmy’s?January 28, 2019 at 1:28 am #1202752320

It was incredibly naive of them to send the first season against the final season of Breakingd Bad (still gets me angry how Matthew walked out empty handed despite his brilliant performance), but this year running against their own final season of Game of Thrones will be just shooting themselves in the leg. However even in miniseries they’ll have to go against their own Sharp Objects, and with no ACS in sight, bot shows has a decent chance. When I think about it it’s really interesting what they’ll chose to do. My bet is on miniseries though. This way ideally for them Adams can win actress and Maharshalla actor, which is highly plausible

“The Hour & the Day” should be a directing contender for sure. My grade: AJanuary 30, 2019 at 10:03 am #1202755531
Eligibility rules for drama v. limited changed after TD Season 1. Season 2 actually ran in limited and was nommed for sound mixing, it just wasn’t on most people’s radars because it was such a flop. I expect Season 3 will also compete there and will (hopefully) have a much better showing.
I think nods for Ali and Ejogo are all but guaranteed but there is plenty of reason to believe that this season will go above and beyond and land a similar nomination haul as S1.January 30, 2019 at 10:06 am #1202755534
Is Ejogo lead or supporting? Gonna watch the season once it’s over.February 1, 2019 at 2:07 pm #1202758357
Episode 5 is now up for streaming. It’s another good one in a consistently good season. Ali and Dorff are awesome in this episode.February 3, 2019 at 11:16 am #1202760262
Another thrilling episode. This was when the ensemeble cast really exploded. Scoot McNairy has this highly sympathetic sequence with Stephen Dorff (again, who knew?) that could easily be his Emmy reel. Mamie Gummer is doing the level of work here that would make her legendary mama proud. Carmen Ejogo is getting more and more to do as this progresses, which I didn’t quite expect. All eyes are on Mahershala Ali right now, and for good reason. This will likely turn out to be better work than either (going ahead and calling this now) of his Oscar-winning performances, and I say this being a faithful supporter of his stellar work in “Moonlight” (let’s not get into “Green Book”). I see that David Milch was a co-writer with this episode. The writing was definitely more pointed and profane in places lol, but Nic Pizzolatto’s stitled, overly formalized prose is still echoed all through this series. Can’t wait to see how this all ends!
