It’s also remarkable that, in only eight episodes, “True Detective” managed to piss off the Internet with its finale -– something also usually reserved for a series that has logged quite a few seasons. Yet, after Sunday’s finale, there it was: The now-commonplace complaints that a finale didn’t live up to expectations. The problem is, we’re never again going to get a so-called “great” finale. The Internet will make sure of it.
Nailed it. I truly believe I enjoyed the end of ‘True Detective’ more because I avoided reading needlessly intricate fan theories.

PCB Original: HBO presents Darren Starr’s ‘Her’
You loved her as a promiscuous PR director on ‘Sex and the City,’ but Samantha Jones has found a new passion: being an operating system.
(Warning: NSFW Language)
John Watson insists to Mrs. Hudson that he is “not gay” after she is surprised to hear that Watson is planning to propose to his girlfriend.
Watson has made this clear several times in previous episodes, and I believe him, I don’t think he’s gay. Everything I’ve seen suggests a genuine physical and romantic attraction to women, including his new fiancée, Mary Morstan.
But what bugs me about Watson’s response to Mrs. Hudson is the pretty glaring reality that he does love Sherlock and wants to spend his life with him.

Watch: Robert Downey Jr.’s acceptance speech is only one of our 6 most WTF moments from the People’s Choice Awards
The rest include Justin Timberlake enjoying a fourth meal and an awkward surprise appearance from Christina Aguilera.
I wrote up another thing about the People’s Choice Awards for PolicyMic. The People’s Choice Awards, by the way, are by far one of the strangest award shows. This year was a mix of boring and huh?
My PolicyMic piece for this week. I recommend ‘Orphan Black’, ‘Rectify’ and more.
The number of “good” new shows out there is staggering, and while you likely heard about ‘Orange Is the New Black’ and ‘House of Cards,’ not every awesome new series is being buzzed about.
1. Orphan Black
Streetwise punk Sarah Manning is in the middle of a life-changing conversation in a suburban living room. Housewife Alison Hendrix and graduate biology student Cosima Niehaus have just dropped a bomb of information on her, and for a brief moment you forget that one actress is playing all of the parts. Star Tatiana Maslany is giving one of the most under appreciated performances on modern television. This thrilling sci-fi drama carved out a name for itself on BBC America earlier this year with its breakout star and clever plot mechanics. It’s pulpy, exciting action done right and it’s rising in notoriety thanks to Maslany’s Golden Globe nomination.
Andrew McMahon is writing songs for “Smash” Season 2. Insert appropriate screaming GIF here.
Legally! Thank iTunes for this.
Watch the first episode of ‘Smash’ season 2 now.
“Smash” Season 2 premiere (one hour of it!) is here! I love the first song and all it’s winking at the changes, long wait, etc.
Pretty cool for Kroll to get a Times interview, until you find out that the writer has some bizarre agenda?
Let’s examine his questions shall we:
- Your new program on Comedy Central, “Kroll Show,” is sketch comedy. Even legends of the genre, like “Mr. Show,” never generated big audiences. Will you be satisfied with a small audience?
- Considering what happened when Comedy Central gave Dave Chappelle a $50 million deal, do you think comedians should ever be given large amounts of money?
- Years before you got your role on “The League,” you were a talking head on various VH1 pop-culture shows. Did comedians get paid or was that cable TV slavery? (After answering that some was unpaid) Did you hate them for that?
- I was surprised when one of the repulsive jerks in your recurring sketch about two drug-addled trust-funders is revealed to be H.I.V.-positive and it’s played for laughs.
- What’s hilarious about living with AIDS?
- You’re not afraid of portraying black characters, like Fabrice Fabrice, a flamboyant craft-services coordinator. Are there questions you ask yourself to avoid being accused of racism?
- Your father started the private-investigation firm Kroll Inc., his share of which he sold in 2004 for about $100 million. Do you think coming from that kind of wealth helped you in your career?
- But did you ever feel like your father was investigating you in high school?
