The Old Man

I just finished watching Season 3 of HBO's True Detective. I was absolutely hooked, the acting was really excellent and the atmosphere and storytelling were really compelling. This is definitely a series to be savoured late at night.

Each season of True Detective is a stand-alone anthology with an ensemble cast, so you don't need to have seen the previous seasons. I love this format, very much like the brilliant Fargo, except in Fargo (which deserves its own thread) there are a few tie-ins, nods and references to previous seasons and the original Cohen Brothers film. The downside with the format is that when it's such a great series and you really get to like and feel for the characters, you get hooked and just want more.

Anyhoo, I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for more crime drama with that certain MillenniumisticTM feel!

Wow, in the 3rd season.  I've heard about this show, but have never watched an episode.  Now you have wet my whistle.  :like-that-when-I-got-here:

Thanks for the heads up Old Man.

We need an "Old Man" emoji.

I don't usually gravitate towards detective shows, Old Man, so haven't seen True Detective, but am curious as to why you think it's Millenniumistic? 

That could tip the scales for me, which would be good since the one show I'm watching these days finishes its season next week.

I like Fargo, too:)

I think late night is usually the best time for many serious tv watchers as there are fewer interruptions or distractions.  Good TV shuld require some attention and concentration.

I loved the first season.  I haven't seen season 2.  I have seen parts of season 3.  I will probably rent it when it comes to DVD/ blu-ray

      Hi! Curiosity brought me home! 
      It it seems like masks are a great way of protecting oneself from the COVID-19 Coronavirus by protecting others, and hopefully the follow suit. 
      But also, it could be a great way of sharing your fandom.
      I’m sad to see there aren’t masks to buy, but I thought a black mask with the white  ouroboros would be a good start. A partial ouroboros like on the masthead for M-TIWWA would be good too, especially if it had some series quotes like, THIS IS WHO WE ARE, THE TIME IS NEAR, THE TIME IS NOW, and others. 
      I checked the store and didnt see any there. Is anyone thinking of doing this?

      (Spoiler alert) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luther_(TV_series)
      DCI John Luther (Idris Elba) is an obsessed and sometimes violent police detective who doesn't always do things by the books as he investigates serial murders while entangling himself with crime figures and a beautiful pyschopathic murderer woman Alice Morgan  (Ruth Wilson) who becomes obsessed with Luther.   There has been 20 episodes over five different season/ series with the fifth season leaving a cliffhanger and bringing the show full circle.   It is a dark crime thriller written and created by Neil Cross.  It delves into the same gritty dark areas that Criminal Minds and Millennium get into.  John Luther often leaves his superiors in the dark and gets his partners involved with the bending of the law while working the case.  Luther  is brilliantly played by Idris Elba and I hope a sixth season is getting made soon (instead of a feature film that Cross and Elba want to make (where they tried to get a prequel film together years ago after the first three seasons aired).
