    I really liked Succession too. Some great characters — Kieran Culkin was hilarious. I gave up on Barry — not that good in my opinion.

    Anybody else watching Escape at Dannemora on Showtime? Good stuff — I always was fascinated with Escape from Alcatraz and this is similarly awesome. It’s worth watching for the beginning scene of episode 5 alone.

    True Detective Season 3 looks like it's going to be great.

    Did you watch both episodes? They aired two on Sunday night.

    I agree it looks good so far. Definitely back to the roots of the season 1.

    Only watched the first one and planned on watching the second last night. Then had to work late instead.

    I like the way they are structuring things in the 3 different time periods, and how things seem to bleed between them for the main character.

    The first episode seemed to be going toward the exact story line of the West Memphis 3. If you have seen the documentary about that case (Paradise Lost), it is really close to the same story line. Even down to them commenting on the kids Black Sabbath shirt.

    season 2 was garbage because it was distilled pizzolatto self indulgence. the only reason s1 is the best tv season of all time is that mcconaughey and woody are what they are and fukunaga could tell pizz that his circlejerk first year mfa dialogue was just a starting point. it’s funny that it takes basically a silent protagonist to get us back to good true detective.

    Watched ep 4 last night. Starting to pick up steam. There's a lot that has to happen between now and episode 8 to connect all the dots. Should start rolling.

    Purely nitpicky tangent: the show has done a very good job aging the characters between the 3 timelines. Except for 80's Roland and 90's Roland. If anything, 1990 Roland (with his real hair) looks [I]younger/I] than 1980 Roland with the fake blonde wig.

    interesting. can't decide whether i'd prefer a connection. the chicken farm stuff seems like a red herring, but who knows.

    the wife/hays scenes are getting tedious. we get it, she’s a tourist and he’s moody and dealing with some vietnam shit.
