Far From Any Road

It only took us a week; then again, there were only eight episodes. However, quality outguns quantity every time. True Detective was a Crimbo present from The Number One Son, so it came highly recommended.  Set in the deep south and starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, True Detective is crime noir at its very best - with a splash of Twisted Nerve and Wicker Man thrown in for good measure. Well written, stylishly shot and music by T Bone Burnett. And, of course, it's from the HBO stable. What's not to like?

The Handsome Family: Far From Any Road


  1. We enjoyed season one as well, but have received less than glowing reports about season two.

  2. Ditto that. James said do Season One. And walk away.

  3. Watched it when it was released and loved it,( I think it was better for only having eight episodes, so many American series have seasons which are exhausting). I never felt the need to go back for more, it would always disappoint
