So far, this HBO series looks promising, yet the start has been a bit slow. Even if the show continues to run at this introductory slow pace, there is no argument that True Detective is about to place it's name in earshot of great crime dramas, like Dexter and The Wire.

Speaking of The Wire, did True Detective's producers hire that cast in bulk?

Okay, so there have only been a couple of crossover actors so far, but it was still more than I had expected 2 episodes in...

What do you guys think of the show so far?
