Got to admit, I'm struggling to work out what on earth is going on.
Couldn't get into Season 2. Haven't returned.

I was the same. Season 2 was unwatchable for me. Tim Riggins let me down on that one.

I vaguely remember a scene where he was riding a bike in front of a bad green screen and that was the end

I now realise I recorded Episode 2, not Episode 1 and started with Episode 2, then streamed 3. No wonder I had no idea what was going on. Watching Episode 1 now.

It was a great Episode 1. My my IQ3 recorded Episode 2... and I thought I was watching Episode 1. Episode 2 is the worst of the first three episodes, but the experience was even worse as I missed the entire set up from Episode 1. Episode 3 is very good too.

True Detective season 3, huh? It's been a while - season 2 aired in 2015.

I want to watch it at some point, but I think I'm going to have to clear my backlog first. It's a pretty big backlog...

Is True Detective on Netflix?
I'm due to start a new series now, I'm torn between TD S3, Haunting of Hill House or House of Cards English version (all completely different choices I know..)

New season of True Detective is fantastic so far, loving how the story is unfolding over the three timelines and Mahershala Ali is killing it!

I'm watching MKR and then MAFS on Nine Now or recording. Last season of MAFS was the best season so far, quite compulsive.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Maybe not as brutal or gory as season 1 , not far from it though.

Just watching MAFS from last night on Nine Now. When the families get told... you know, when there are TV cameras and lights in their house... why are they so surprised when people tell them... "I'm getting married to a complete stranger." Have they not watched TV in the last five years? Did they not suspect ANYTHING?!
