THEY'VE ONLY BLOODY CAST TIM RIGGINS!
read it as the detective(s), was looking forward to a reminisce about the 90s jasper carrot sitcom
RUST: The world is a cold and dead place. The biggest mistake in existence was human consciousness. Does nothing but set up false mythologies and illusions to waste your life endlessly pursuing -- through work, through relationships, through drugs and alcohol... (takes a drag from a cigarette)... at least a dog only chases its own tail in a literal sense (throws cigarette from car window)
JASPER CARROTT: Ar I dunno mate, the world always surproises me, loik y'know. AR, did YOW know, fr'example that Biiiirmingum 'as more miles of canal than VENIIIISS.
JASPER CARROTT: Ar it's true, 'n all. It is
but on balance this should still be pretty good. Got a lot of time for Farrell.
in an attempt to receive that critical reappraisal.
"The only problem with the third season premiere was, not so much Thicke's acting - which was passable enough - but his frequent looks directly to camera, mouthing what our editorial team has deciphered as 'Paula, look! I'm the True Detective now! JUST LOOK AT ME PAULA' and 'I'm actually *anti*-rape. Honestly. I've donated to charities.'"
though, for something that got so much acclaim, the last two or so episodes started to make what had been so thrilling and strange into something that was just too conventional; and the focus shifted too much onto the mystery (which became sort of mundane and less interesting as it became solved) and a bit unfortunately away from the two central characters and their relationship.
Certainly be interested to see the new season, though. I read stuff about it being influenced by Crying of Lot 49 so, in my head, I'm partly imagining similarities to PT Anderson's forthcoming adaptation of Inherent Vice, which I'm also anticipating eagerly
i've reached mcconaughey saturation
that the end of season one tailed off a bit. Still excellent overall though. And Tim Riggins!
Christ what an ugly dude.
but my wife wasn't such a fan. Then we got into.
Then they finished it so badly, not just rushed but with such a batshit, pulled-from-the-bag resolution?! It's a shame.
I take it from what I've heard that this will be a completely separate story? If they're taking a nod from the original book http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King_in_Yellow then we should still have references to The King in Yellow and Carcosa (sp?). The first four stories in that book work this way.
as far as im aware.
Im sure he will borrow/steal from different books for the second season.
I loved it from episode one, excellent modern southern gothic/neo-noir. Without a doubt my favourite show.
As far as this casting goes, never seen Friday Night Lights but basically everything he's been in has been shit. I think they should sack the casting person and start again as it's starting to sound like they are casting a spoof for MTV.
your opinion on Tim Riggins is pretty fucking redundant pal
hated the ending so much.
True that the series peaked in the middle, but it still kept me interested right to the end.
I think people were expecting some mystical thing but really it was jsut a gritty 'realistic' ending. When I cite a 'problem' up thread I'm referring to it peaking in the middle.
and went on to the bit where they suddenly had everything sorted out and go for a finalé.
But personally I really disliked how they set up so much stuff that they then just left unresolved, to a ridiculous degree. Like to pluck one example, his kid drawing the stuff. This wasn't even close to a red herring, it was just... some bullshit. They manage to achieve the level of nonresolution bullshit in six episodes that took Lost several series.
I'm not saying everything should always be tied up neatly. Imo this went *way* pass that.
Also the writer is a pseudy yellow dungarees twat who actually believed in all the empty bullocks rust spouted lol
Apparently the autocorrect on this phone is actually my auntie Carol in digital form
I almost missed this :o
where can I watch it?
netflix and Amazon instant video
then I'm going straight to season 2, only watching it for riggins
looking at rust's time undercover with that biker gang
was some of the best tv ever created. Obviously wrapping up the ending and living up to that was gonna be impossible. Finales rarely make the best tv but i was pretty satisfied with it overall and didnt feel let down.
is definitely my favourite ever TV action scene. incredible.
Looks like my mate Luke.
Cowardly and actually felt like some pressure from the studio to put a pro religious spin on it.
First 4 episodes was some of the best TV ever.
it's made by HBO, don't be absurd.
It just felt so much of a cop out, the tropey southern white trash villain and Rust essentially finding god that I just don't see how they got to that without outside influence.
Rust see's into the light at the end and feels the eternal love of his kid, we're not all alone, the lights in the sky?
Pretty blates pal.
can't really remember exactly, but it like just seemed to be him becomming more accepting of his daughter's death and that maybe there's a possibility for a more positive existence, which seemed like the logical conclusion to his character arc esp after a near-death type thing? dunno, it definitely used a lot of religious awakening cliches but it seemed to not use them in a completely traditional way to me.
then again I can't remember that well and I may have been wanting it to not to be purely religious. I dunno.
also, despite hating religion, definitely spoke in mystical terms. plus he was having hallucinations.
i didn't see it as a stretch that he reconciled the tragedy in his life in a vaguely (and it was vaguely) spiritual way. it made sense.
hate colin farrell and john carter is bland as. vince vaughan is probably the best one there. imagine that ffs. vince bloody vaughan.
Half is to pity your stupid wrong opinions
because you're projecting your opinion based on previous stuff they've been in. i mean ffs this show had matthew mcconaughey in it.
both farrel and vaughn have been charismatic and good in projects written by people who are good.
