Ironically, I just started watching this on Netflix for the first time in the last week. It really strains credulity. I love how Kevin Bacon's character -- despite having a heart problem -- is always able to get to wherever the action is quickest, only to immediately have heart palpitations and be at 25% of his usual strength. He also -- no matter how many episodes consecutively it ends poorly -- decides to always push ahead without backup.

the only thing that bugs me, is the unfounded dedication to the direction that so many people are throwing their lives at being mentally enslaved by this serial killer.  who next, the president . . . the pope?

There's a few episodes that don't work, but it's really good, IMO. I'm biased because I live in Richmond and all the jokes pretty much work for The Fan/Carytown/Church Hill areas, just change the city name.

Not to give plot points away since I'm like 4 episodes ahead of you, but that gets much worse. He basically has a small standing army at his disposal which is so dumb if you think about it for too long you'll stop watching the show.

the only other time such a scenario worked in states of realism . . . was the manson family, but jesus, they basically ate acid for breakfast lunch and dinner.

I absolutely love Portlandia. The characters are so fucking on point it gets on my nerves sometimes lol. I can only "binge" with 2 or 3 episodes before I have to turn it off because the characters eat away at me. I could never tell if that's a good or bad thing, but I find them hilarious. Haven't seen any of the new season.

As for True Detective, I want to see if they can unravel the mystery in the last episode.... The end of episode 7 was kind of underwhelming....

30 minutes into A&E's latest "Those Who Kill" and OH MY!!!!!!  Seeing as these is an American adaptation of a Danish show, one has to worry about the psyche of the Danes.  This is one messed up show....

Then how do you know the characters "are fucking on point" if you've never spent any time there?
