After a pilot episode with little to recommend it, ‘Night Finds You’ recaptures a bit of season 1′s driving-in-cars-shooting-shit character chemistry, meanders through introducing what might shape up into a compelling setting and plot, and then ends by swerving with alarming suddenness into what might be some honest to God interesting territory.
Ray Velcoro getting pumped full of buckshot in the episode’s final moments is so definitively framed that his survival would be a Dallas-sized lump of horseshit. The crow-masked man who does the deed, the kitchen sink filled to the brim by the slow accumulations of a leaky faucet, the golden oldies on the radio, the closet hiding what looks like a wiretap or a secret studio of some kind; it all comes together to make the last two minutes of this week’s True Detective feel like a reel from a lost David Lynch movie. »

On Friday, Jimmy Fallon gave fans a scare when he checked into the hospital for emergency surgery on his hand following a mysterious injury. Today, the host is fine, taking to Twitter to reveal that he's recovering comfortably -- and tweeting with one hand -- thanks to a combination of drugs, Jell-o, and excellent medical staff.
Fallon posted a series of updates to Twitter over the past few days, first showing off a big bandage on his left hand, then explaining what happened: He tripped and caught his fall on a nearby table, but his wedding ring latched onto the table and "almost ripped my finger off."

(Spoiler alert: Do not read any further if you have not watched Sunday’s June 29th episode of HBO’s “True Detective”) For fans and critics bemoaning a slow start to the second season of “True Detective,” the end of Sunday night’s second episode floored the gas pedal on the dark drama starring Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch. When we last left a group of world-weary investigators and a highway patrol cop (Farrell, McAdams and Kitsch), they begrudgingly assembled to solve the gruesome murder of a businessman tied to Vaughn’s shady land developer.

*Spoilers ahead from last night's "True Detective" Season 2*
Only two episodes of "True Detective" Season 2 have aired on HBO, and we're still trying to figure out the characters' names and motivations (beyond a lot of scowling). At this point, we're still following them as Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch. And after Episode 2, "Night Finds You," maybe there's no Colin Farrell anymore?
Farrell plays Detective Ray Velcoro, opposite McAdams as Detective Ani Bezzerides, Kitsch as Officer Paul Woodrugh and Vaughn as criminal entrepreneur Frank Semyon. "Night Finds You" ended with Farrell's Ray Velcoro shot multiple times by someone wearing a mask -- a black bird mask. And it's HBO. And a main character may or may not be dead. This is too close to "Game of Thrones" to ignore. Jon Snow just got stabbed by his fellow "crows" in the Season 5 finale and may or may not ever return. »

"True Detective" ups the ante in every way and settles into its comfortable procedural grove this week. Its season premiere may require more than one viewing to truly appreciate (having watched the episode again, I can say it does improve), but "Night Finds You" is full of all the elements that made the first season such a standout. The episode opens with Semyon (Vince Vaughn) concerned for his legacy. Subtlety is nowhere to be found as quick flashes of Semyon's large empty house are intercut with him lamenting the fact he and his wife Jordan (Kelly Reilly) do not have children. When Frank recalls his five days in the dark as a child and his terror at being locked in the basement, his desire for some sort of lasting contribution becomes clear. Semyon straddles the line between legitimacy and his gangster past for most of this hour and he seems »

A review of tonight's "True Detective" coming up just as soon as I support feminism by having body image issues... "But us, the investigation... I don't think it's supposed to work." -Ray "Night Finds You" could be a tricky episode for me to write about, since it ends on a cliffhanger with Ray getting shot in the chest by Caspere's killer (or by another man with a very particular bird mask fetish), and since you know I've seen next week's episode and am therefore aware whether Ray lives or dies. Fortunately, I don't need to dance around what I do and don't know, and what I'm comfortable hinting at, because I can share exactly how I reacted in the moments immediately after I finished watching this one: "Huh. I was not expecting that." If Velcoro is dead, then all the time spent trying to cast that role represents a classic »

Another one bites the dust! The second episode of HBO's True Detective Season 2 ended explosively thanks to one of the leading characters getting pumped full of bullets in the closing scene. Read on to find out whether Taylor Kitsch, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, or Vince Vaughn was potentially killed off –– plus find out what's going on in Ben Casper's murder investigation.

Channing Tatum has been talking about a lot of movies recently. On the promotional trail for Magic Mike Xxl, he updated on his still-gestating Ghostbusters reboot, and has now teased his vision for his upcoming Gambit movie, which is due to hit screens in 2016. While Taylor Kitsch played the role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 20th Century Fox replaced him with Tatum for the Gambit solo film – which will be written by Joshua Zetumer, from a treatment by character creator Chris Claremont. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Tatum revealed that he is working closely with director Rupert Wyatt to realize a particular version of the story.
“We’re so early in it. I really have some things in mind, but who knows – it’s pretty fluid at this point. I do believe that [director] Rupert [Wyatt] and I have the exact same vision of what we want to do. We want it to be different. »

What did You think of the much-anticipated season premiere of "True Detective" Sunday night on HBO? The first season -- which starred Oscar champ Matthew McConaughey ("Dallas Buyers Club") and Emmy winner Woody Harrelson ("Cheers") as Louisiana cops in search of a serial killer -- was a critical sensation, winning five of its 11 Emmy bids last year. Our feisty forum posters are divided about the series' return, which reinvented itself in Season 2 with an entirely new cast, story and location. This time around, creator Nic Pizzolatto has set the story in Southern California. It kicks off with the discovery of a body by a highway patrol officer (Taylor Kitsch) and leads to a conspiracy involving a mob boss (Vince Vaughn), a corrupt cop (Colin Farrell) and a do-good sherrif (Rachel McAdams).

Four new characters go about their dodgy business in a doomy atmosphere – but what of the case, you may well wonder?
“I welcome judgment” says Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell somewhere underneath a droopy moustache). “I’m an American – say it,” orders Detective Antigone “Ani” Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) to a line-up of webcam girls she’s hoping are illegal immigrants. “I had to work out some kinks …” offers California highway officer Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) (yes, he’s in CHiPs!), to his bored, semi-clad girlfriend after a 30-minute shower, the effects of his blue pill having finally kicked in. “Never do anything out of hunger – not even eating,” says casino owner Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), confusing everyone.
Welcome to True Detective (Sky Atlantic), round two. Unlike, say, Line of Duty, which adopted the “guest lead” model – swapping Lennie James for Keeley Hawes but keeping the core team of Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure and Martin Compston, »

The trailer begins with Bezzerides landing Casper’s murder case. While assigning Velcoro to work with Bezzerides, Davis brings to light that Velcoro is a crooked cop. In the next scene, Velcoro’s bosses assign him to run interference on the Casper case. We see a shot of Frank as he intensifies the search for his money and then cut to Paul as he argues with his girlfriend.
Night Finds You Synopsis:
Ben Caspar’s autopsy reveals the gruesome details of his demise, and Ray and Ani wonder if it has anything to do with his fondness for prostitutes. Meanwhile, Frank looks into what might have happened to his missing fortune.

HBO’s True Detective Western Book of the Dead TV Show Review. True Detective: Season 2, Episode 1: The Western Book of the Dead marks the second iteration of HBO’s hit anthology series. Last season, True Detective set a high standard for what a limited series could achieve. Season 2 returns looking to exceed expectations with a larger cast and even more pulpy intrigue.
True Detective season 1 wasn’t just a television series, it was a phenomenon. When True Detective was firing on all cylinders, it offered viewers a delectable taste of a rare television delicacy. The show hooked its ravenous fans with a one two punch of gripping mysteries and mesmerizing visuals, before the amazing performances levelled them with a knockout blow. As Rust Cohle, Matthew McConaughey delivered a character that will go down as one of TV’s all time greats. Viewer’s became so transfixed on Rust, »

There are few more evocative first lines in 20th-century American literature than that of James M. Cain's 1934 novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice. "They threw me off the hay truck about noon," begins the book's narrator, an amoral drifter named Frank Chambers. He soon finds himself near a roadside sandwich joint called the Twin Oaks Tavern, a spot that, Chambers says, is "like a million others in California." But bad things happen at this rural little diner — things like adultery, kinky sex and first-degree murder. The book's sinister series »
Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The 34-year-old Canadian first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. This week, he returned to the small screen with his buzzed-about role on True Detective. In other words, now is the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. »
“I welcome judgment.”
Cool, Ray. You asked for it.
True Detective‘s first season seemed to have the zeitgeist firmly in its swamp-mummy claws, an unexpected pulp hit hitched to live-wire performances by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, filmed by the thunderous Cary Fukunaga, and veined through with little rills and creeks of cosmic horror. It wasn’t perfect. Pizzolatto’s bluster about “real men” and the show’s eye-rolling moments of realization and poorly fleshed-out women could and did drag it down at times. It was, however, a damn sight better than ‘The Western Book of the Dead,’ season 2′s joyless flop of a premiere.
Fukunaga’s replacement, Justin Lin, doesn’t have his predecessor’s eye. There are a couple shots worth looking at it. Ray Velcoro(Colin Farrell) pulling on a ski mask and raising a finger to his lips as a warning delivered right to the »

Near the midway point of the first season of True Detective, Nic Pizzolatto became the de facto face of the show. A writer who clearly wanted to take most of the credit for one of the most popular shows on television, Pizzolatto gave off an air of entitlement throughout that season’s last few episodes and then continued to give interviews in which comparing himself to the second coming would have been one of the humbler comments included, deflecting praise to the rest of the team responsible for the gorgeous establishing shots or murky Southern murder mysteries. These details aren’t laid out to place all the blame on Pizzolatto for the average opening episode of True Detective season two, but it does seem as »
