Jesus Christ, that was incredible watching. That tracking shot has to be one of the best I've seen in a long time. Really captured that chaos that persuade.

I've only watched the first one, talk about a slow burner. No spoilers please but is it worth going on with?

This is going to be on Sky Atlantic on 22 Feb. Need something to fill the void now that Breaking Bad's gone.

Even the intro is absolutely quality, had the tune stuck in my head all day and I don't even mind. Is it a song or is it just for the show intro?

The only thing I have bad to say about that episode is that in the final scene it seemed like Ginger was going along a little too willingly.

Pistol-whipped a couple of times and he's just doing as he's told while Cohle is holding his collar. No fighting back, stumbling or being pushed around. Granted, him being discovered by the locals would be really bad, but he'd just discovered the guy was a rat. He should be fuming, especially given Cohle obviously needs him, so can't kill or injure him.

I definitely wouldn't class it as 'family viewing' in the traditional sense. It's dark, bleak, uncomfortable but completely riveting viewing but if tha's what your family likes then yeah go for it.

Really enjoying the series so far it isn't a show that will deliver big action sequences it's all about the characters.

That final 7 minute long take was the best scene I've ever seen on TV. Wow.

I know season two is going to have a completely new cast but one problem I can see on the horizon is what an incredibly tough act McConaughey and Harrelson are going to be to follow.

Imagine if they got Christian bale for season 2 or someone of that calibre again.
