HBO’s TRUE DETECTIVE Looks So, So Good

A new trailer and poster will make your wait that much more difficult.

There's a new trailer for HBO's upcoming crime series, True Detective. This sequel to True Blood focuses on two detectives, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as they both investigate a complicated murder mystery in the 1990s and look back upon that complicated murder myster in 2012. It looks flat-out incredible.

True Detective will hit HBO on January 12. I've heard it described as a limited series, but they're referring to it as Season One on the HBO website. I'm more willing to believe the former, though, as investigation narratives like this don't have much luck with multi-season stamina. And on top of that, Matthew McConaughey seems too busy being in every movie ever to pin himself down to a television show, even a potentially really good one like this.
