    WHAT?!?!?

    You should listen to the good place podcast for last week

    I should ask, is this any good?

    Yes, very

    It is essentially episode commentary and it's hosted by Marc Evan Jackson and it has fake ads read by the cast

    Also the latest episode was guest hosted by Jason Manzoukas (hope I spelled that right)

    It is the third-worst TV season I have ever seen
    1. Last season of Dexter
    2. Last half-season of BSG
    3. True Detective season 2
    4. Last season of Sons of Anarchy

    It's been a while since I could recall anything but the ending, so I won't say the last season of Sons of Anarchy is worse

    I liked S2 of True Detective just fine. However it was trying to follow one of the best seasons of dramatic television and it did not have the chops to be that act.

    Had it's moments tho

    Conversely, S1 turned my dislike for Matthew McConaughey into grudging respect.

    I've loved Matthew McConaughey for a very long time, so when we entered the golden age of McConaughey, I was ecstatic.

    Matthew McConaughey's six-minute stretch in The Wolf of Wall Street is electric.

    He's out of his damn mind and loving every moment of it.

    i found true detective season one completely incoherent

    perhaps if i'd known that at the start rather than having to waste my brainpower throughout i would have enjoyed it more

    remember the
    long tracking shot / house raid? did that have any relevance to the broader plot whatsoever?

    the whole season felt like a series of episode-long narrative cul-de-sacs

    it was a case study in all style, no substance

    Yes actually.
    The entire story up until then had been building and amping up the pressure. Cohle had relapsed and hart was getting worse in just being the shittiest person. The case was building into something more horrific than anyone expected. For the viewer all the mysteries and plot were becoming a sunken nightmare. That whole part mirrored the cramped, clostrophoic feel of the show at that point, and when it ends, there is a tangible release from both the characters and the audience. Well until a nick cave song smashes on

    I made the mistake of watching the while season a few months ago while tripping on acid and this part left me a spiralling mess so I may not be the best judge though

    but you can underscore theme and tone while developing important narrative strands

    Umbrella is basically Game of Thrones but nobody is good so it could be really interesting.

    They uh don't exist post Racoon City though.
