Season 1: Don't give up early. If you are saying in your head.. this is so slow.. why the hell do people like this.. keep moving forward. There is a turn and a hook and a change in it all when the action, intrigue, dialog and mystery just keep coming at you.

Season One: opened weak and finished good. Season 2 well get to see if it was just Woody and Mcconaughey that made it shine.

Season Two: Take a nice murder, over complicate it with impotent and uninteresting story lines and you have this whole season. I Hated this season. Just awful, slow and complicated for no reason or effect.

Season 1 was just brilliant, very original and intense. Hope the second season will be as good as the first.

Not gonna lie, this show took me some time to get into. But it was good once I got there! Not 'the best show of the moment' like some called it, but good, and I am curious to see where it goes next.

Season two is not for me but I am hoping that season three of this anthology series will give us another chance to have a tremendous show back on tv.

Perhaps the best TV show since 6 feet under. Reinventing the southern genre + crime and grit -- even the cliché alcoholic cop is turned to good use. Never heard dialogue on TV like this--meaty and smart, it's like savoring a great novel. The actors are aged in fabulous ways and though much of this "takes place" in an interrogation room, the sense of it being recounted in a stilled space does not come in too often to detract from the gripping story unfolding. Season 2 is anxiously awaited!

There are no words to express how blessed I feel to see Woody and Matthew every week, with plot-twists every 10 minutes. YES YES YES to this show!
