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...

Finale

I loved this season. I don’t have anyone around me who watched the show AND is willing to dig into it. So I have to share with you guys. Observation one, Wayne in varying ways said more than once that he doesn’t live in his past. His life is in...

Wayne Died in the Finale

Hey Guys, I listen to a few TD3 podcasts, and nobody picked up on what I thought was a pretty clear allegory to Wayne’s death. In the 2nd to last scene, Amelia more or less come to “fetch” him with some dialog that could be interpreted in a few ways,...

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...

Family was the thing

Guys, We got a great end to a great season. Sometimes a soft/subdued ending is better than a hardcore “guns are blazing” type ending. I think that the finale really focused on family: Hoyt – in his warped way, all he wanted to do was to help his daughter and...

True Detective Finale – Great Acting, Strangely Unsatisfying

Hello. I’m writing you because, of all the commentators I’ve seen, you seem most to combine intelligence with the experience to evaluate things in a realistic manner. Most commentators, even ones who are obviously bright, just don’t have the sense of history, or, apparently, real life, to interpret things except...
