    True Detective is fantastic, but if you get your hopes too high for anything other than references to strange fiction you might be disappointed. Good, old fashioned, real evil is at the heart of the show and it is far more frightening than any mythos.

    I love puns. I loved this strip. I also think True Detective is one of the better things to come along in some time.

    I like the strip, but the Jerry icon is just horrifying.

    I appreciate the effort, but Jerry's is still worse.

    I thought it was a brilliant strip, personally.

    Did Mike and Jerry just discover Know Your Meme? Between this and the Ackbar comic from last week you'd think the next comic is going to be about Rickrolling.

    Is this all you post about?

    The casting for Mother Hydra and Father Dagon might be tricky, but I have faith in Hollywood.

    I've been considering watching this show, but I generally find it really tough to get into mystery shows. Lost basically drove me away from them forever due to that ages old debate that I'm not trying to renew, just clearly state how I came away feeling after the show.

    How fantastical is this show? I see lots of references to the Lovecraft mythos, but I asked a non geek friend and he said there was no mystical stuff in the show (this was a couple episodes from the end). Is it one of those red herring shows where there's no way you can try to figure out what's going on, because the show is going to pull a moment of, "Haha, we distracted you by showing you stuff that wasn't the case. Here's the REAL answer!"? (Which is most detective/mystery shows, so it's obviously something good that's just not FOR me.)

    What is this I don't even.

    @Darkewolfe‌ I'll spoiler this just to be safe, but I don't really consider any of it to be spoilers in a meaningful sense.
    There is nothing supernatural in the series. The show may focus on two detectives and a murder case but the show doesn't function as a mystery in the traditional sense. It doesn't structure itself with build ups followed by big reveals. Events just sort of... happen. Things rarely progress they way you'd expect them to, but there's never any shyamalan-esque twists. Some people got caught up in the Lovecraftian references and cult conspiracies and were disappointed that the finale barely addressed those things, but the show was never really about that. It is intensely focused on the two main characters, their philosophies, their deeply flawed natures, and the world they inhabit. If that sort of thing interests you, you will probably enjoy the show. The final scene can be hit or miss with people, but it's nothing compared to the LOST final scene.
