Last night on E!’s The Soup, Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash did what they do best: skewer and satirize a movement in the cultural zeitgeist. In this case, the HBO series True Detective, which literally no one on planet earth can stop talking about and/or obsessing over. And we have to admit: their purposefully confounding clip is pretty funny.

True Detective Watch: Episode 7 - After You've Gone
While his True Detective character continued his quest to find the 'Yellow King,' Matthew McConaughey was busy winning an Academy Award. And, given his performance up to and including “After You’ve Gone,” audiences should probably get used to his ‘alright, alright, alright’ acceptance speech cause it's bound to resurface in a few months when all the small-screen awards come ‘round. Time is a flat circle. And this was the beginning of the end.

The fervency with which fans have taken to HBO's original series True Detective is impressive. Naturally, the series' striking visuals, gripping storyline, and incredible acting have helped turn this into can't-miss TV of the grandest proportions. But given that Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey's story ends after the finale next month, some minds have turned to casting season two. And we've got some ideas of our own.
President Obama Requested Advance Screeners Of True Detective And Game Of Thrones
There are an insane amount of responsibilities that come with being the leader of the free world, but there's also some pretty cool perks, like a kitchen required to cater to your every whim, and the power to ask for advance copies of some of America's most anticipated series, like True Detective and Game of Thrones.
True Detective Watch: Episode 5 - The Secret Fate Of All Life
Even before last week kicked off 'Act Two,' audiences had already started debating whether or not True Detective was the best (new) show of the year. Then the drama dropped "Who Goes There" and assured its spot thanks to the six-minute continuous shot heard round the world at the end of the already impressive fourth installment. Forget all the other shows, how could True Detective possibly top that? Well, by revealing “The Secret Fate of All Life”...
True Detective Watch: Episode 4 - Who Goes There
The monster at the end of the dream. That’s where True Detective left audiences hanging two long weeks ago. The stellar new HBO drama decided to take last Sunday off so as to not compete with the (super dull) Super Bowl and fans have been dying to get back into the action and see "Who Goes There." The slow burning series seemed to be just about to start cooking with gas and things certainly caught fire.
True Detective Director Wish List: 5 Filmmakers For Season 2
Thanks to Super Bowl XLVIII, there was not a new episode of True Detective last night. Girls and Looking moved to Saturday to avoid the big game but HBO’s crime story decided it best to skip this week altogether and just air the fourth installment, “Who Goes There,” next Sunday instead. In the critically acclaimed show’s absence, I thought of five directors who might be up to the challenge of taking over from Cary Joji Fukunaga.
True Detective Creator Inks 2-Year HBO Deal, Making Season 2 Likely
True Detective may not have a confirmed second season, but with the impressive ratings and critical acclaim the Matthew McConaughey and Wood Harrelson-fronted drama is a likely contender for HBO’s renewal game. Add to that the recent announcement that the network has inked a new two-year overall deal with series creator Nic Pizzolatto, and well, it’s not hard to see the ever-increasing likelihood that we’re to get a part two of the sweeping crime affair.
True Detective Watch: Episode 3 - The Locked Room
Thanks to Super Bowl XLVIII, audiences have to wait two weeks until the next episode of True Detective. That’s right, no monster next Sunday night. The HBO (not)true-crime series can go up against awards show after awards show but not the NFL championship. To be fair, nothing on the network is going up against the big game, however, nothing else ended with a cliffhanger like “The Locked Room.” The monster!
True Detective Watch: Episode 2 - Seeing Things
Only a couple hours after Matthew McConaughey took home a Golden Globe, his new series debuted on HBO and all but guaranteed the actor will be putting an Emmy in his expanding trophy case. Since last Sunday's True Detective series premiere, McConaughey also scored an Oscar nomination with the recognition finally pouring in for his incredible recent run, a run that's far from over with him once again stealing the show in "Seeing Things."
True Detective Review: One Hell Of A Hard Boiled Mystery
Do we really need another series based on a serial killer on TV? Isn't it overkill? Some have gone so far as to call the recent string of dramas that explore said subject a rash but that would imply that the murder mystery wasn't a popular genre well before the medium was invented not to mention that those that have popped up are, well, bad. On the contrary, the 'rash' has included several excellent serial killer dramas and you can add HBO's impeccable True Detective to the list. You can't have too much of a good thing.
True Detective Takes You Into Its Main Characters' Heads With New Teaser
Michelle Monaghan, who plays Marty’s wife Maggie, delivers a soft-spoken voiceover that takes us into the heart of these two leads. Marty appears to be the nice guy who doesn’t know any better, not quite sure of the person he is inside, while Rusty is the assuredly hardheaded guy who knows exactly what he wants and doesn’t want. It’s obvious that both men are severely affected by the unsolved murders they’re investigating, and now we realize that their work has indirectly affected Marty’s family in a bad way.
