    Saw previews for it during the Winter Classic yesterday -- looks interesting.

    Oh yay! I just saw the previews for this and now I am going to have to subscribe HBO. Woody and Matthew on the same screen! You know they're stoned!

    This does look good. One thing I hope for it: please, no humor whatsoever. I think many of us here probably agree that Breaking Bad is one of the best projects to have ever come across our television sets. The one thing that kept it from being perfect, in my opinion, was any of its attempts at humor. The show would occasionally get into slapstick-mode (recall the time when Marie needed to get Hank out of the hospital) and would take me out of the spell.

    This upcoming project looks as if it will be played straight. Sort of like No Country For Old Men. To the best of my knowledge, there was no humor in that film, was there?

    Woohoo! - I got a deal with DTV and got HBO on the cheap just for this series!

    I am so looking forward to this. It has real potential and I hope it delivers.

    Tonight sister wife! I'm making red beans and rice in honor of it being set in New Orleans and such. I'm just a fun gal like that:grin:.

    Oh hell! I almost forgot. I'm Golden Globesing it for the night, but I think that comes on after. I will definitely record it! Thanks for the reminder!

    Whew - I'm glad I reminded you then! I'm going to need someone to discuss this with. I think it's going to scare me!

    I have so many things I want to watch tonight! Sister Wives is on too, but I'll just have to catch that on rerun. ;)

    I think it looks so good. I will be so disappointed if they mess it up.

    Did you watch "The Making of True Detective"? I'm totally crazy about Woody (you know why!) and Matthew (he's sort of like a young Paul Newman and a young Marlon Brando swirled together). It looks pretty intense. I think HBO does a good job with most of their stuff. I loved Six Feet Under and Carnivale.

    OH MY GOD! Me too! I own Carnivale on CD (what there is of it.) I was crazy disappointed when they didn't go on with that one. And Six Feet Under -- brilliant. I bawled like a banshee at the ending.

    Funny! Me too on both. I love that Sia song and the youtube that goes with it. Best ending of a series ever! And I was so bummed when Carnivale didn't come back. I toyed with writing a few episodes for myself, just to give it a proper ending.

    Dexter before he got all serial killer. I couldn't watch Dexter, the concept of a killer that you actually like and understand really freaks me out.

    Oh man yes, I warred with myself over this in the beginning... and then I guess I just maybe... sold my soul? :sad:

    Did you end up watching it? I did watch a few with my husband, he watched the entire series, but it really disturbed me. I think True Detective is going to be kind of freaky scary like that.
