So the season 2 finale is Sunday. It flew by because it's only eight episodes. True Detective and Ray Donovan are my favorite shows right now. True Detective is complicated and fast paced and I should watch each episode twice but I don't, so I was confused on a few things. I found an article that breaks down the episodes and clears up all the questions I had. I'm excited for the finale. Last Sunday's episode...Damn.

Read this if you have any questions. It covers up to Sunday night's episode, so don't read it if you aren't caught up.

You're just about the only person that I've heard say anything positive about season 2. The first season was a must see for us but all the bad press regarding season 2 as it debuted and as the weeks progressed has suppressed any desire to watch it in lieu of other shows we follow.
YMMV

Well, I'll admit I didn't love it from the get go. It took it a few episodes to find its stride. I considered giving up on it around episode 2, but I'm so glad I gave it a chance. It's a complicated show, but awesome, IMO.
