True Detective Slow Burn - Day One
Given that True Detective ends this coming Sunday, and that is 7 days away, and that there are 7 episodes of True Detective thus far, I’ve decided to finally begin watching. One episode a day (and two on finale day). I’m prone to binge watching (I finished House of Cards in less than 48 hours) so we’ll see how well I’ll stick to it.
Today’s Episode: Episode 1 - The Long Bright Dark
Desire to watch next episode: 6/10
So, I watched the first episode today. I was told I may spend the first half of it wondering what the point of the conversations was. Quite the opposite, I caught on to these characters almost immediately. I enjoy the writing, as strange as it is thus far. I’m intrigued, but definitely not hooked yet. Desire to watch is a 6. If I had to wait a week for episode 2 I could with little issues.
Like some days you might say something stupid, and that’s the part of you that’s still ten. Or maybe some days you might need to sit on your mama’s lap because you’re scared, and that’s the part of you that’s five. And maybe one day when you’re all grown up maybe you will need to cry like if you’re three, and that’s okay. That’s what I tell Mama when she’s sad and needs to cry. Maybe she’s feeling three.
Because the way you grow old is kind of like an onion or like the rings inside a tree trunk or like my little wooden dolls that fit one inside the other, each year inside the next one. That’s how being eleven years old is. —
