^^GoT still reigns supreme, but this is the best thing on television at the moment.

last episode was a snooze fest. i could not care less about Frank's goings on.

the attempt to be Lynchian at the beginning made me feel physically embarrassed for the show.

maybe i was in a bad mood i'll probably binge eventually and like it more.

I thought the last episode was the best so far.
This still had nothing on season one, but it is still good tv

Im starting to thing they will tie all the cops in somehow dealing with their ghosts and demons and it all comes down to them and Vince's character as well.

It's been a good show so far...not sure i like having so many characters to follow compared to season 1..but hopefully it picks up the pace this episode.

The only thing I'm not liking so far is it's only 8 episodes.

That's some bullshit. Last night's episode was crazzzzzy

Also I can't believe how many haters there are for season 2. Get over yourselves. Personally I prefer that they went away from all the scenes (last season) that were just Q&A in the interrogation room.

This show is directed beautifully. Everything about it is cool. The lighting and sets are all awesome. I really love the booth in that seedy bar where there is always live music in the background.

The shit hit the fan last night tho

Also, this is the most range I've ever seen from Vince Vaughn. He's killing this role and shattering that typecast he's had for years now.

I hate shitting on people for enjoying art I hate, so praise away. Hopefully it continues the positive momentum of the last 20 minutes of episode 4.

(That said I'm saving that Vaughn quote, Ribs )

I don't get all the crazy hate I've been seeing for this. The plot hasn't been very clear so far, but that hasn't completely ruined the show - its just made it hard to follow at points.

My biggest complaint through 4 episodes is Vince Vaughn's character. I don't think Vaughn has done a bad job, I just think his character is pretty terribly written and the worst of the 4 major characters this season.

I actually think Vaughn's character is pretty good. He is devolving. he was one deal away from being 'totally legit', and now he is back in the pits. I think this season is definitely a great season, but they have overdone some things...

That singer at the bar. Sheesh. I am ready for someone to say "Is she always this way?"

Everyone's cool with her being the only music because the last guy was the one doing the show's intro and they don't want to risk going back to that shit again.

^^^ I love the way Vaughn is devolving.

After watching the latest episode...starting to think this all revolves around the land and those blue diamonds that were found in the safe deposit box.

Vince got pushed out because someone else wants the land for the diamonds...someone with more connections and power...Vinci perhaps?

Agreed. Having a hard time following a lot of what is going on so far.

So did the state trooper actually have sex with that other guy or did he just crash at his place?

I by no means will stop watching. These last episodes hopefully lean more on Farrell and McAdams. You couldn't convince me at gunpoint that Vaughn hasn't been terrible.

Much better tonight.... except for "in this economy?" Haha.


Hoping Vince's wife gets offed soon so we don't have to suffer their scenes together anymore...kills the momentum each time.

Would be cool if these parties ended up being a west coast carocosa/yellow king deal.

^^BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BBBAAAABBBBBYYYYYY. WHAT HAS THIS ALL BEEN FOR?!?!

this show has been really hard to follow and I just can't take Vince Vaughn seriously, as much as I wanted him to succeed in a role like this.

Rachel McAdams has been incredible - I hope we see her cut some fools before it's all over.

for me the only reason this season is so confusing is because they go rapid fire on numerous character and location names constantly, but they never really gave you a good enough introduction to the characters for me to be able to remember all their names. Without looking it up i couldn't even tell you any of the main character's names besides Vince Vaughn's. Once i figure out who or where the fuck they are referring to in any given conversation, the actual story isn't hard to follow.

The plot pattern is a bit too similar to season 1 for my taste

Oh here these bad criminals are the culprits, oh no it actually rich white guys having sex and torture parties, let's investigate outside authority


Still on board though

I rewatched episode 1 of season 1 and it would have sucked without Woody Harrelson. He anchored the whole thing.

I actually watch intricately detailed shows with subtitles too..maybe it comes with age?

Anyways, this season sucks compared to 1...too much dialogue and not enough action.

Everyone said this past episode was good but...the teeth knockin was the only good part.

More action, less talking...bring back the weird and crazy.

Bandwidth is used like that a lot where I work.

And I know I am a complete True Detective homer but I enjoy a lot of the interesting lines they throw out this season. One of my favorites was the last episode when Ray is talking to Ani at the dive bar and says something along the lines of, "It was good to see you, I didn't realize how much you had been on my mind"

Look, if you're the"bandwidth" guy at work describing your availability for a conference call, I get it. It's your work phrase. You might also say "let's huddle up", for example. And that's cool. Every job needs those guys. But if you're trying to pass as a believable character in a drama, describing you're emotional investment in a topic such as adoption, I'm just gonna say it sounds laughable to use the word "bandwidth" there. That's all I'm sayin.
