The Watch

I enjoyed your deep dive on season 8, and was glad the three of you could point out so many strengths to the season and episode. I however did not enjoy the finale, but not because I did not appreciate the ending of the story, but because I found the...

True Detective Finale – Great Acting, Strangely Unsatisfying
