Is the second one still not worth bothering with, or was it really that pants?

First one was magic, Vince Vaughn was class in S.2 but the programme was nowhere near as good as S.1.

Rewatched second series recently and found that it stood up a lot better the second time round now that the weight of expectation has worn off.

Watching the second series then the first series would be the way to do it.

Yeah second series underrated.
Anything with Rachel Mcadams is worth watching.

That and the bit where they go to Reggie Ledoux in the first season are both incredible bits of television.

True Detectives not on a par with 1st series, Anyone feel the story is not going anywhere? this may be down to being entranced by Carmen Ejogo

to be fair it's never going to match series 1, I like the slow burn of it though.

Started off as a comedy and got darker throughout - was good though.

Mum Scully is fitter than X-Files Scully.

Show is so so but Gillian is BANGING.

It's exactly the same formula as The End of the Fucking World. Half Skins and half Wes Anderson movie.
