    Yeah, I hope this propels him a little and he starts getting some good roles. Honestly, I'm not sure I've seen him since Blade.

    This season is top notch. The black fella with the cloudy eye that showed up to the 1990 bookreading - that’s not the same guy that Ali & Dorff questioned in the 1980 trailer park?? I could’ve sworn that guy had a buggy right eye whereas this one had a buggy left eye?

    Anyway, great show

    Yeah, that guy was OLD in 1980, older than this guy is in 1990. Someone told him that because of the factory there were lots of people with injuries. The owners of the factory are seriously coming into play now.

    Got it - thank you for confirming. And agreed the factory seems like ground zero at this point...they are connected to multiple pieces of this puzzle. Of course that then means that mommy junkie probably didn’t OD in vegas; she was murdered then posed. Also feel like they really want us to 2nd guess Dorff at this point...especially him making that remark to his dog about being self sufficient right before Purple showed up. Regardless, what a fun season!

    Only two episodes left. I don't want it to end. I hope the quality of season 3 means that there will be a season 4.

    I saw the finale. I thought it was great. A really good ending to the story. And your spoiler is something that I did not think about, but it is certainly a possibility.
    This was a really good season, Both actors were incredible. I wonder since this one did so good, and a lot of people liked it (washed the second season away for me),
    if they will try a 4th season.

    That'd be my guess. At least for the time being. A moment of supreme clarity and then into the darkness. A lot of people complained about the pacing and structure of this season, but I really enjoyed it.

    I thought the whole season was great; pretty much loved every episode. Ali continues to be a heavyweight champ and freakin Dorff out of nowhere just straight up slaying as well

    As for your spoiler, you may be partially right. I thought it was kind of the whole Time is a Flat Circle thing that TD loves. Season closed out with two kids biking down the street just like it began. And in every timeline Purple is a tracker of some sort, even if he’s just tracking for his own memories in 2015. (To your point)
    He signed up for ‘nam bc of the 10k his mom would get if he didn’t return, but instead he learned a valuable skill that he’d need for the rest of his life, personally & professionally. Walking into that jungle ended up defining his entire life

    A truly solid season. Great acting on the part of the stars and all concerned. Not quite as dark as season one, but satisfying never the less. I hope they continue along the same track in future seasons. Anyone heard anything about continuing the series?

    Yea, I did love the part at the end with two kids riding their bikes at the end. Like it's going to happen all over as again as you (Earl) mentioned about the flat circle theory and things just repeat. I thought of that as well. Like you said, he was tracking the enemy in VietNam, then he was tracking bad guys as a police officer, then he was tracking his memories as an old man. A very good season and I really hope it comes back strong like this again.

    That finale was fantastic. I thought the entire season was handled perfectly. The ending was beautiful, yet heartbreaking. I was seriously getting the chills during the whole scene where Hays shows up at Julie's house.

    Ali won his second Oscar in two attempts the same night the True Detective season finale was airing. I think he should make room on his shelf for an Emmy. The beauty of winning an Oscar is that you can then call your shot. The producers first approached Ali to play Dorff's character. Ali said he was playing the lead or he was out. The rest is history.

    Every new season of every decent show is always your new fav of all time, Kris! lol

    But, this was a very good return to the formula that works for this show. While I think season one was slightly better in that it was a little more twisted and gruesome, this season was top notch as well. The acting was exceptional and maybe a bit unexpected given that the main characters weren't of the same caliber (?) of McConaughey & Harrelson (Box office wise I suppose), their performances were a breath of fresh air. I hope they continue to produce the show and continue with the intricate and macabre stories that are well worth watching.
