TV critics they are not...
I enjoy the Bald Move guys' Game of Thrones podcast well enough, so I decided to check out how they deal with another show I enjoy. Unfortunately it just doesn't work for True Detective. I have no interest in listening to two guys whine about how season two isn't as good as the first, and I can't take any analysis or criticism from them seriously when they struggle with pronouncing "Oedipus".
Another Why Bother Podcast
Again these guys do a good job when they are accurate in the shows that are actually good versus bad but they have this show all wrong. On every level season 2 is better and other than episode 4 & 5 in season 1it was a boring mess that ended terribly. The setting, the layers, the confusion are better this season. What is funny is these guys will do multiple podcasts on factually awful shows in The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, The Leftovers, & will no doubt even bother with the new Walking Dead waste of time yet won't cover The Americans (quit) or do Homeland, made fun of 24, & seem to just hate watch this season 2 of True Dectective. Seriously guys why bother as you don't even know what good TV content is other than a common widespread liking of Mad Men & Breaking Bad. Everything else is pure opposite in whats good versus bad. You can't argue, debate, or even have subjective opinions on the quality of shows as they are easily known to those who know how to evaluate properly.
The best True Detective podcast
I've listened to the other TD podcasts out there and I'm so relieved Jim and A.Ron are now covering this show! Not only are they intelligent and insightful, they're genuinely funny without trying too hard. I really like how they go deep in their analysis. Also very clean sounding audio.
