True Detective S4

My expectations were low. I love Jodie Foster, and if this were even passable slop I'd have been locked in for the entire season. I made it halfway through the first ep before wanting to turn it off. Getting through both eps felt like a chore.

Plot is old and done before, no matter which way they take it. Acting is embarrassingly bad. Writing is so obviously shitlib female I can't even begin to take it seriously. And if it weren't for all that, it's too dark, literally. I get it's night for a long time there, but the darkness of most of these scenes is akin to orange Mexico.

2/10. I can't continue with this shit.

    Episode 2 got kind of good around the middle, but I think the writers realized that and corrected their mistake

      The worst thing I can say about the show is how much I think about the writers while watching it. Also, it's just as easy to imagine the upper management at HBO who greenlit this from the start, and okayed the finished product. They cannot help but slap you in the face with it, subtlety is not in their cards.

    >I can't believe I fell for a white boy
    >She’s gonna kick your pink ass
    >Wouldn’t have happened if she was white though

    I can keep going but I'd rather just forget I even tried to watch this non-pizzalatto slop.

    It's just poorly done. It never feels as scary, tense or oppressive as it should, even though it's set in this isolated frozen town of permanent night.

      Disjointed, awkward and bad. Even smoking hot Jodie's GILF sex scene was weird and not hot at all. How can you make a bad sex scene with a GILF this magnificent?!?! It's maddening.

        This too. For a grandma this hot that sex scene was bad. If Brian De Palma were directing my balls would be shriveled prunes from all the ropes I'd have shot by now.

    Anymore I just can't watch female written shows. It takes all of about 5 mins to notice and then the immersion is broken. There's no saving this shit, the curtain is pulled back already.

    The only enjoyable slop these days is boomslop cuz it embraces what it is and doesn't take itself too seriously.

      I’ve noticed women directors nowadays feel the need to pass the Bechdel test. The most boring part of Anatomy of a Fall was the beginning when two women are talking. Sure enough, the director is a woman. The rest of the movie was pretty good, but women talking is just boring. It is as difficult to write good Bechdel test-passing female dialogue as it is to choreograph a believable fight scene in which a woman beats up a man.

        >everyone can chime in whenever the want like a group conversation or launch into their very own uninterrupted soliloquy
        >lawyers are allowed to constantly ask questions of witnesses that make them speculate about what might’ve happened or what another person is thinking
        >they can fill in all the blanks with assumptions and fantasies like "she is a murderer because she wrote a book about a murderer"
        >therapists can break confidentiality and just start arguing with the defendant about why their spouse hated them
        >blood spatter "analysts" can just come to court and be like "yeah the blood came from above so she killed him and I can't think of any other explanation ok merci au revoir"
        >the prosecutor can mock your lawyer's arguments with their own snappy wisecracks

        The only good part of Anatomy of a Fall was redpilling me of what a nightmare France is

          It did seem like a circus compared to an American court, but it was refreshing to have court feel like a discussion rather than a series of Yes/No questions and being scolded for answering with anything other than a yes or no.

        Just take a moment to internalize the genius of S1's writing and how intelligent the characters are, especially Cohle and how they apply said intelligence to succeed in seemingly impossible situations. And then take a look at this shit again. Frick man what happened to television and movies? 2014 wasnt the golden age but Jesus how did we get to this point?

    The good news is we'll all be dead or close enough when it collapses. Women are destructive by nature, their ability to carry a child is the balance.

      Hulu has made a bunch of shows better than this. This would even be bad on Peawiener.

    If it hadn't been going to shit after Rust and Marty I'd prolly be more mad. But I guess this is a fitting end to a proud franchise that was driven into the ground by money hungry morons who lack creativity and foresight. They can never take season 1 away from us.

    Is it even possible to undo the damage women have done to television & film? Like what's the path out here? Show runners are obv scared of being called racist or sexist, but at some point money runs out. Is there a light or are we fricked?

      People will stop watch and it will collapse. It’s already starting to happen. The failure of the Marvel-Industrial complex will kill theaters. And streaming services are all hemorrhaging money, the investors will pull out when they realize how bad the actual viewership numbers are.
