Lost Slander! and a Little True Detective

Hey! Guys! I know you’ll never read this email because the season’s over now but I HAD to write in defense of Lost. While I wasn’t precisely a lover of the finale, much like so many others, the showrunners did NOT pull an “it was all a dream” thing. Everything...

True Detective Podcast

Gentlemen, I discovered your True Detective podcast a few days after the first episode of season 3. It’s fantastic! I couldn’t wait to listen to your thoughts and opinions a few days after each episode aired. I felt the need to write in today after listening to L.J. O’Neil’s email...

True Detective S3 Finale

Guys Thank you so much for doing this season! I probably would have missed it completely as it wasn’t even on my radar. Great season, fantastic acting, and amazing visualization in the whole season with a dark visual undercurrent. You didn’t parse this out, but when Hays comes face to...

True Detective And Thanks

Gentlemen; Thanks very much for your podcast, most recently for True Detective season 3, but also for West World and Game of Thrones, which I have also listened to and enjoyed, and look forward to in the future. You guys are quite good — funny, insightful and, refreshingly, critical of...

The Watch

TD S3E8: A Waste of Tinfoil

Hey Guys, Can I remind you guys that this is ‘True Detective’ not True Love or True Life… if the story’s mystery is a MacGuffin then we all wasted a lot of tinfoil over the last 7 episodes. I agree with your assessment of episode 8 —if we were watching...
