    So, Cary went ahead and made his own True Detective season two?

    Finally seeing ads for this and I'm getting excited. I read the books by Caleb Carr and they were fantastic. Hopefully this show will be just as good when it starts on TNT January 22. :)

    It's been killing me because I've heard about it for so long and it never showed up. Now we finally have a start date. :)

    I can't wait. It's a shame its not on netflix. I wanna binge it rather than keep going back to it for 8 or 10 weeks.

    Saw this last night. So good! Great atmosphere and Brühl just kills it.

    It's okay. I'm not really taken with any of the characters but it's early yet.

    Was anyone else struggling with all the accents?

    I really don't like the actor who plays Roosevelt. He has no charisma or energy and I've always imagined TR as having a lot of both.

    Yeah, the Roosevelt guy is definitely the weak link in the cast so far.

    At the end of the episode, how did the killer get through that hole in the roof? It did not look accessible from the floor.

    I can't stop thinking about this show. It's caused me to go on a Daniel Bruhl movie kick.

    I'm enjoying this quite a bit honestly. I have never heard of the source material, but I really like the actors involved, especially Evans and Brühl. It has a great atmosphere and I'm not going to lie there have already been more than a few moments in both episodes so far that have made me squirm and feel uncomfortable, but in a good way.

    So far they've done an excellent job. I am optimistic that it will hold up all season. I'm hoping they go on to do the second book as well. :)

    Brühl got snubbed for an Oscar nom in Rush. That year was really crowded but he was excellent in that film.

    I'm glad to see Dakota in something popular again. It seems like Elle is in far more films than her nowadays but she's always been my favorite Fanning.
