Let me first qualify that headline by saying, yes, we’ll have galleries of any outstanding celebrity breasts at the Oscars tomorrow morning. In the meantime, I’m not about to sit around sweating another boring Hollywood circle-jerk while the bar for dramatic television is being set. So on that note, here’s an antler-horned cornucopia of True Detective theories and articles for you chew to on before after Act 3 starts tonight. And before some idiot asks if HBO’s paying me for this, let me tell you the secret to Internet marketing that won’t cost you a dime: Make something so good people can’t shut up about it. Which is why if you’re in charge of marketing for the Heroes: Reborn, kill yourself the first chance you get. /rustcohle

    I tried watching this. It’s a well made show but I’m not really into it. Kind of reminds me of the style David Lynch used in the late 90′s/early 2000′s.

    But props to Woody Harrelson to get Alexandra Daddario to do her scenes totally naked. Even to the point where you can play with tv setting and see the hair and roast beef after straddling Woody.

    Please. We need Courney Stoddens’ posts.

  4. I’m getting caught up using the HBOGo on-demand app. I knew I should be watching it, but after Fish first ejaculated all over everything the other day, I got into it.

    What’s dumbfounding is how anything of genuine depth that tries to reach beyond what seems like a prescribed level of what the entertainment industry thinks people want to see, is immediately devoured like a prime ribeye among people constantly fed saltine crackers. They really could raise the bar considerably, still make as much or more money, and not make nearly as much crap.
