Warning! Spoilers ahead!

“Those moments, they stare back at you. You don’t remember, they remember you.”

Rachel McAdams’ character says this at one point during the episode. What was she talking about? I don’t know. And that seems to be how this season is going to be from here on out. I’ve had more hope during previous episodes but now that we’re halfway through I don’t see things getting much better.

Keep reading if you don’t mind spoilers or (like me) you don’t really care too much. Continue reading

True Detective Season 2, Episode 3 Review

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

I actually meant for this to be my first post of the week but eh, you know how things go. People get Playstation 4s and put them to use. Gotham needed saving and I had to answer the call in Adam West’s Batman suit.

Staying on topic though, this episode had a little more going on for it. I’ll get into though since intros for something that will have spoilers in it means I just drag these out while saying absolutely nothing. Continue reading

Warning! Spoilers Ahead!

I’m not sure I’m going to be doing this for every episode but the debut of the gritty crime series feels monumental enough in its own right (at least with the people I know) to not only watch when its initially airs- something I never do- but to give some thoughts on what was done right and what was done…boringly.

“‘Boringly’?'”you ask? “It’s only the first episode!” Well allow me to answer your question with another questionWhere was Matthew MaConughey?!? Looks like I win. Continue reading

MBTI: Marty Hart and Rust Cohle- ESTJ and ISTP

Posted in MBTI Artisans, MBTI Guardians, MBTI Stuff with tags , , , , , on 06/20/2014 by Taylor Holt


As common as ESTJs and ISTPs are in fiction, it’s rare that they’re written as well as they have been on HBO’s True Detective.

Though combative and depressing, detectives Marty and Rust are two characters that see the job through to the end, much like their respective types. If they don’t kill each other first, of course. Continue reading
