New Season, New Faces

Even though a new season of Game of Thrones is upon us, HBO isn’t pulling any punches.  The cable giant released a trailer for the second season of their crime anthology, True Detective.  Gone are the Texas drawl duo of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, replaced by the likes of Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch.  Like Mad Men episode preview, the trailer does a great job of revealing little about what we’ll see in this upcoming series, other than an increase in city vistas and thick mustaches.  We’ll see how the change in scenery affects the quality of the show starting June 21st.

    I’m super excited for this, but that is the grossest mustache I have ever seen.

    I have no right to have an opinion on this, because I don’t have HBO and even if I did TD is too moody for me to watch. But this is the internet, so I have an opinion. Must everything be set in LA? There are a zillion other cities in California alone and 48 other states with their own crime-ridden cities they could have gone to. Get an imagination, Hollywood! Besides, Mannix was already set in LA, and I think he’s already solved all the crimes there.

      At the bachlorette weekend I went to last week, I was having a conversation with one of the girls about accents. I (clearly) have a Minnesota accent, and she is from NYC. We both have accents. She kept saying that she thought she sounded normal, and I was trying to explain that everyone thinks they sound normal to themselves because thats what they are used to hearing. Her next reasoning was… “But we sound like everyone in the movies.” I said “yes, because all movies are set in NYC!…no wait…half the movies are set in NYC. The other half are set in LA. Thats why I have an accent. You’ve never had a movie that sounds like me!”

      This seems like a general enough opinion that it doesn’t matter whether or not you’ve seen the show.

        I guess what I’m saying is that where it’s set will have no effect on whether or not I’ll watch it. (Also, I shouldn’t complain too much because Battle Creek is literally half a hour away, and I haven’t watched that thing either and it’s on network TV. I’m the worst.)

        • mordonez says:

          Battle Creek is OK! It’s clearly a network cop show, but somewhat light hearted, with decent characters. If you watch one (if it’s on your on-demand or cbs.com or whatever) watch the most recent one, with Patton Oswalt playing essentially Rob Ford (the fun lovin/crack smokin mayor of BC).
