People need to not compare this to season one, this is a whole new set of characters and stories. If they do compare, they will be disappointed.

I think we should be allowed to compare based on overall quality. I agree we shouldn't expect the same atmosphere or type of plot, but we should expect the same quality of acting and writing, and if we don't get that, then yes, we will be disappointed.

The first episode was a really long setup. I hope the pacing picks up in future episodes. I think the main problem was that they're trying to make us care about too many characters all at once. There were two characters who mattered in the original season, now they've doubled that.

I think the main thing missing from this episode that was present in the first episode of the first season (and which was the one thing that pulled me through, as that episode also seemed rather slow and confusing at the time) is chemistry between the leads because...well, the leads only meet up at the very end of the episode. In S1E1, we had Marty and Rust bantering on for the entire episode, and that was encouraging because it showed that if nothing else it would be entertaining to follow these two guys around. I hope that by episode two we'll see the same thing developing between the three cops in this season.

Yeah, not anywhere as strong an opening as season one, but it kept me entertained enough to watch ep2.

Velcoro - Dirty unstable cop with a drinking problem

Bezzerides - Borderline self-loathing cop with major daddy issues

Woodrugh - Impotent adrenaline junkie with troubled past

Farrel's character is over the top. I'm predicting him to die in episode 6 or 7. The fact that he's already on the wrong side of the law means there will be a major shitstorm once his deeds come to light, and it will probably be one of those things where only death can redeem him.

Wasn't keen on this episode. As others have said, no chemistry between characters. Really, no interesting characters at all. And forcefully dreary and bleak to the point where it doesn't feel natural. Also took way to long to get to the point.

Hundreds of sweeping aerial shots do not, good drama, make.

I don't think it's that the characters are less interesting, although they do need more screen time. It's a directorial problem. It needs Cary Fukunaga

Also a writing problem. The pacing was bunk. It really is a shame that Fukunaga isn't back this season. Dunno what they were thinking bringing on the Fast and Furious director in his place.

I think the characters are much less interesting. No one immediately demands attention like Rust did in the first season. Instead we get generic dirty drunk cop and his generic disgruntled cop cohorts.

I do think of all the characters, Farrel's character has the greatest potential to be interesting.

So far Kitsch has two faces: surprise and anger. If he doesn't vary it, it will get old fast.

Rachel McAdams's character has potential.

With Vince Vaugnh, we haven't seen enough yet to know what he's going to be like, but he better damn well do something in episode 2.

I read that press reviewers were given the 1st 3 episodes because the makers were worried the 1st and 2nd episodes were weak and it picks up after that. Hopefully it does.

For an 8 episode season 3 slow episodes is terrible.

That's like if you have a 400 page novel your friend gives you and before you even start reading he warns you that "the first 150 pages are really slow, but it picks up after that." It doesn't inspire confidence.


Edit: Although, come to think of it, Crime and Punishment was a ****ing excellent novel and I thought the first hundred or so pages were a confusing snooze before it got into gear.

Rachel McAdams' dad (David Morse) was the best part of the first episode.
