Another qualm that I(and other people on other message boards as well, it seems) had was that even though the [SPOILER - highlight to read]: killer was repeatedly referred to as "tall" and "scarred", [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Childress ultimately ended up neither very [SPOILER - highlight to read]: tall nor so [SPOILER - highlight to read]: substantially scarred as to be indistinguishable from other people.

The former point is showcased during his [SPOILER - highlight to read]: tussle with the 2 detectives(along with Glenn Fleshler's own rl height which is around 6 feet), and considering that actual tall people like Reggie Ledoux were shown on the show, it doesn't help this case either. The other point is supported by the fact that when Ruse first met him in '95, he didn't notice the scars either, even though there was profiling being done for scarred individuals during that time period.

If a teenage girl(Tina from that Friends of Christ camp) could notice his scars despite him being hunched forward and her not trying to pay real attention to him, then the thin beard and the light shade shouldn't have hidden his face so well from a guy with Holmes-lite observation/deduction skills either.

Didn't he have a beard back in 95?

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Childress was noticeably taller than six foot tall Matt, and he had a bunch of dirt on his face back in '95.

He is tall enough for some women to consider him "tall". As tall as Remy Lebeaux? Maybe not. But tall.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Nope. When they stood toe to toe, Mcconaughey and Fleshler seemed to be roughly the same height, with the latter being 1 or 2 inches taller than the former at best.

He had a thin beard, which in no way whatsoever should have been enough to conceal scars that can be noticed even when he's hunched over by a girl not trying to pay close attention to him, from a guy with as sharp an eye for things as Rust. Not to mention that they were on a lookout for tall, scarred individuals at that time.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Which is where the inconsistency comes from. One of those women, that teen girl Tina seemed to be pretty tall herself( she was almost as tall as Marty when standing next to him). His height being a distinctive feature among a crew of characters which consist of a giant like Ledoux is an inconsistency. Particularly when there wasn't much of a significant height difference between him and Rust.

Also, the Glenn Fleshler point.

There are other theories on other sites as well which indicate that some things were left unexplained; notably the [SPOILER - highlight to read]: drawings in Audrey's room which consisted of a spiral, that barbie doll gangrape scenario which was eerily similar to what was hinted at in the Marie Fontenot videotape, and the scene where Audrey steals Maisie's tiarra which has a creepy resemblance to the antler-crown which all those kids were adorned with.

Along with Audrey's behavior which seems to indicate that she had likely been abused as a kid(probably by the grandfather)
.

I think they need to release a director's cut version where these discrepancies are explained away.

Good series. Last episode felt a bit rushed though.

Epicurus you are truly offensive. If you don't believe in God you don't have to be so rude about it.

Fantastic first season. Episode per episode one of the strongest shows I've ever seen.

I saw nothing in that trailer that compares to the visual awe factor of a cane field on fire at night.

As others are saying, I'll give it a chance, but I have little hope of it being anything like/as good as the first season based on how it's been described.
