That opening was outstanding. Definitely think each episode is getting better. And every scene that has the mayor in the background, drink in hand, has me laughing my ass off. I want even more of his family now.


I still disagree about Vaughn though. I think this one put me in his corner now. He convinced me, especially with the club scene. Not once did I think about Wedding Crashers.

why are mayors always so corrupt? haha

i'm really deep in feelings about velcoro. man has won over my heart mighty quick. i'm just not buying vaughn. i've tried. he's a major flaw in this show.

i don't think it'll end well for him. bezzerides is warming to him and man, did he save her life. i think mcadams' character is probably named after a. i. bezzerides. something will likely happen between bezzerides and velcoro though. i'm such a cliche but i hope so!

I get there's a whole lot of "fucking" in modern series scripts, but Vaughn saying it all the fucking time really gives his character a forced attitude. It's weird, it's like he can do good damage but sticks to rusty guns acting wise. I just hope he goes apeshit honestly.

Anyone count how many times Bezzerides said "Fuck" during the shoot out? Made me giggle.

Had to be a couple dozen haha. I let an audible "Noooo" when Dan from Deadwood got headshotted in that Heat-like shootout. This show really knows how to end episodes.

So the drunk mayor orchestrated the shootout, right?

 Mariam, I know you hate Vaughn, but come on this line was pretty sweet: "Things move fast now, babe. Someone hit the fucking warp drive and Iím trying to navigate through the blur." COME ON.

I loved it when the closeted gay dude was telling the fat slob cop how "some fag was staring at me at the check out, and I was about to clock him". His response/face was enjoyable.

I actually enjoy vince Vaughan in this show. He's a good shit talker

I'm about to through episodes 5 and 6.

I'll be honest and say this season has been totally lackluster so far. Back in season one I was hooked on the first episode and addicted at the end of episode 3 if I recall well. I know it's not about comparing but I'd feel the same way if not worse if season 1 didn't exist. Vaughn is just completely useless, I want to slap him whenever he coarses because you just feel how forced it is. I don't like Rachel McAdams' act at all, especially since I feel they chose her only for her aspect. Last but not least, the story is just absolutely fucking boring.

Farrell is the only good part but even his shit is getting old.


Hoping for better things in those episodes I'm about to watch, let's hope I'll want to swallow back all I've just said.

I'm still enjoying this, and having fun watching it. Sure there are faults. Like who the hell is Stan; what happened to Birdman; who cares about Blake; me wanting more Bohemian Grove and Santa Muerte stuff. With Vince Vaughn, I'm enjoying him - he is usually either pretty good or so bad it's hilarious and awesome (and some of it could be chalked up to some lame writing).

But I love my crime dramas, and where else on tv am I going to find (mostly) awesome actors going on benders, spewing random existential, sometimes cliched nonsense, while solving some fucked up crimes? This is pretty much exactly what I want in a show like this.

And give me more depressing bar scenes.

Oh man, I don't know. There was so much magic. Was it Frank repeatedly saying "Two weeks. Or less." to everyone?

So why couldn't we get more of the bar owner and Nails this season, instead of Woodrugh's mom and Stan's family? And why didn't we even find out Frank's driver was named Nails until the finale?

Pros :

- Velcoro's paternity struggle, his message, the pictures. Tearjerking.


Cons :

- Everything else.
