    I attempted to watch the first episode of this on HBO GO the other night, but did so really late and I was already beginning to fall asleep. It was obvious from the beginning that this show has a lot of potential. I plan on catching up in the next few days.
    fuck.

    I find most Detective shows awful. I am thinking of giving this show a chance since everyone is saying how it's the best show ever.

    just disagreeing with the statement that a bat to the back 'doesn't really hurt that much". that's all.

    but that single six minute shot at the end of the episode was pretty remarkable and left me in awe.

    True detective is not like any typical detective show you have seen before. The whole season is focusing on just one case and each season will feature a new cast. This season is set in a time line that spans about 20 years (1994-2012) and will jump from the past to present.

    How many times have you actually been present when someone took a swing with a bat, or swung one, or been hit by one, praytell?

    Zack, please don't start watching this show. Just because I'm afraid of how mean I'll get at whatever you come into this thread to say.

    I think epidose five is my favorite one yet. It's headed down a big and windy road and I like it. I do not think it is Rust.

Get fucked. Hitting someone in the HEAD with a bat and actually having it count is hard enough--if you swing from the side the chances of it glancing off the round shape of their skull are so high you rarely land an unconscious-rendering shot unless you're lucky enough to catch them at the base of the curvature. Hitting someone in the back with a bat--unless they're hunched over and their spinal bumps are popped out and you tag one of them dead on--does very little. It's not hard to get up from.

    Here are some other things that don't actually happen in real life that you douchebags probably think are real: if you stick a knife in somebody's stomach, they just STOP COLD AND FALL DOWN. YEAH. THAT'S THE END OF THEM. There's no way in hell they keep coming.

    Oh go suck a dick. One asshole speaks up to comment on how it's awfully curious that the character was able to get off after being hit across the back with a bat, I mention that it's not that unrealistic, and I get a bunch of sarcastic cocksuckers in response just because none of you have any clue what actually happens when you bludgeon someone.

    Do you have any other criticisms of the show that aren't so pedantic? I know you're right. I have seen meth heads take an asp to many o places and get up. I just don't see the point in cluttering a potentially useful thread bickering with noob idiots.

    It wasn't a criticism of the show. It was a criticism of the idiot commenting on it. The show is fantastic.

    I am largely on board with this interpretation of the significance of all of the above:

    The more I think about it, the more I think this might be the ultimate "meaning" of the series: that at some indivisible level, life is story. Much ado has been made online about all the references on True Detective to the Yellow King and Carcosa, as if they were aspects of a coherent satanic theology to which Ledoux & Co. subscribed—a puzzle to be unraveled eventually. But it's telling that the Yellow King is a reference to The King in Yellow, an 1895 collection of horror stories by Robert W. Chambers that itself references a forbidden play called "The King in Yellow"—a play that in turn "induces despair or madness in those who read it." It's also telling that Chambers borrowed the name "Carcosa" from Ambrose Bierce, and that H.P. Lovecraft later borrowed it from Chambers.

    In other words, the important thing about the Yellow King and Carcosa isn't what they signify to Reggie Ledoux. It's what they signify to us. They call attention to the story-ness of the story we're watching. They tell us, as Pizzolatto put it to me, that Dora Lange is "meant to stand in for the universal victim for this type of show"; that Ledoux, with his comically archetypal 666, pentagram, and swastika tattoos, is the universal serial killer; and that True Detective is a form of metafiction.

    ^^ That's a great article. I like the idea that the audience occupies the "fourth dimension" in this scenario. My respect for Nic Pizzolatto's storytelling has grown exponentially with each episode.

    thanks for setting me straight. at least now if I ever find my "sheltered fucksack" self submersed in a situation of genuine violence, and a person is about to swing on me with a baseball bat, I can just sigh in relief…….just a bat, whew.

    on a side not, will anyone else be somewhat disappointed if it does turn out to be rust?

    Not from getting hit in the back, he wasn't.

    This is the True Detective thread. Not the "Poll: How much does a swinging bat hurt" thread.

    Sundays episode was so good! Shits getting a bit darker now...

    I think in true Memories of Murder or Zodiac fashion, we won't find out who the killer is, and it won't ultimately matter.
