True Detective Review – “Night Finds You” – Knocking on the devil’s door.

The investigation into Ben Caspere's murder begins on True Detective.

Guys, this show is dark. I don’t know if you knew that. I mean, I’d like to think it’s not the case, but I imagine that people in this world can’t go to the bathroom without ominous, industrial drums clang-clanging in the background. Continue reading


I’m having trouble dealing with Heroes Reborn.

True Detective Review – “The Western Book of the Dead” – Send in the clowns.

Colin Farrell stars as Ray Velcoro in the second season of HBO's True Detective.

Waiting for the next book, for the next season, is just what we do. It’s a part of life.  Continue reading
