True Detective, End of Season

And there it is - the end of first season of True Detective. And what a season it has been! Right from the very start, the captivating characters of Rust Cohle and Marty Hart lead us through eight magnificent episodes and delivered a satisfying finale. Satisfying? Yeah, I had a few ideas that would have made it even better, but I don't think the majority would agree with me. And I don't want to spoil the end, in case you are a reader that hasn't seen the last episode yet or hasn't even started watching at all. Just trying to avoid spoilers!

What happens next? HBO is working on season 2 already, but we will see a whole new story without Rust and Marty. Both Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey have confirmed that they will not be coming back and I am thrilled with that decision. It's just that this entire season is a masterpiece of its own and it should remain as it is - without unnecessary sequels that often spoil the original. Just think of the Matrix... trilogy... why did it have to be a trilogy?

That's it. The thing I both love and hate about HBO's shows is their length. Love - because it's actually perfect, not stretched out for commercial reasons, and hate - because... well, those are great shows and we get to miss them! Fortunately, it's almost time for Game of Thrones - only 27 days left to go!
