BK: I'll find that thread, thought you were talking about something outside of TSA forum, thanks.

I linked you the thread in the top of my last post ;).

Mad: Never heard of RockNRolla, will check it out.

Standard Guy Ritchie fare but it features Elba, Gerard Butler, Tom Hardy, and Mark Strong on the edge of them getting famous.

Mad: Sons of Anarchy - didn't try it since I don't give a shit about bikers, but you say it's good stuff?

It's The Shield from a biker narrative. I did grow up loving biker biographies so that might have biased me but it's one of the writers from the Shield and it's... very similar in terms of how they construct the narrative. Plus lots of cameos by various actors from the Shield which gives it a nice reunion feel.

EDIT: Even Chiklis in one of the latter seasons now that I think about it.

From your guys advice, review and such I think I will too. Love a good murder mystery and hear this is one of best all-time. Hopefully get a few in tonight and will post my thoughts tomorrow.

Maybe revive the TD thread I linked TH in my last post.

EDIT: I've been thinking about rewatching it.

MSJ: I will bet my family's lives that you will love TD ( not mine, though - my instinct for self preservation is remarkable, the cowards credo  :D )

Just read this entire thread ... phew! No mention of True Detective? The first season was AMAZING. I liked the second season as well, but wasn't well received.

True Detective on HBO -- If you like Bakker, you'll probably like this. Only like 20,000 page views ;).

I didn't bother to watch Black Sails for fear they would cancel that too - but see some enthusiasm for the show in this thread, so maybe I'll check it out.

I thought the first couple seasons of BS were good. Haven't watched the last two yet.

Luther awesome ( didn't know Idris was British, LOL )

Have you seen RockNRolla?

Loved all these ( got tired of typing awesome ): Dexter, The Shield, The Wire, The Fall, Goliath, Queer as Folk, Penny Dreadfull, Preacher, Mr. Robot, Taboo, Hand of God, The Leftovers, Sherlock, The Killing, Boardwalk Empire, Ripper Street, Lost.

Those are all pretty good shows: The Shield, The Wire, and, maybe, Lost being in a different category. You should watch Peaky Blinders. Also, we have a Sons of Anarchy thread around here somewhere.

Omg, dude, not another fucking forum ... I got my hands full with this one.

I think BFK meant another sub-forum ;).

And I don't want to hear all the crying and whining about how "bad" the second season was.

I honestly don't think we talked about it much. I know FB and I liked the second season. The first one had a couple special things going for it, like Fukunaga directing all the episodes, the choice of equipment, the online fervour, the base novelty.

You and FB should talk, you both have excellent taste in television.

It's available to the public soon (links - don't scroll down for fear of spoilers). I haven't read any of the shorts except Bakker's yet.

Omg, dude, not another fucking forum ... I got my hands full with this one. And I don't want to hear all the crying and whining about how "bad" the second season was. I, admittedly a member of a very small group, loved the second season as well ( for those who don't know, this is an "anthology" series like Fargo where each season is a completely unique story with new characters - so, no, it doesn't "ruin" the first if you don't like it ). It's what I call ( just made this up now ), the "false chronology error" whereby the order of things impacts your perception of them individually. If the second season came first, I believe it would have been well received. But since it wasn't the epic masterpiece of the first season, then it has to suck, right? The first season was a gem of extreme rare quality - something that SHOULD be hard to duplicate given its high art ( anyone guess the reference? anyone? ). The second season was great, Vince Vaughn was a demon, loved it - but yes, no, it was not as good as the first, which very few tv shows out there are as good as the first season of True Detective - so it's FALSE to compare the two. I ramble, sorry, but you hit a nerve, LOL.

Hey, Tao!

You should check out the "True Detective" thread on "The Forum Of Interesting Things". I'm sure there's a way to copy a link directly to the thread, but I can't remember how to do it. Maybe if I roll a wino, it'll come back to me.... ;)
