Are you watching True Detective, the HBO show starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson? If not, listen: you need to rectify that situation immediately if not sooner, because it's freaking INCREDIBLE. The last time I obsessed over a show this much was in 1990, when I devoted entire quadrants of my brain to theorizing about the meaning behind Agent Cooper's dream sequences in Twin Peaks.
What's really got my pants in a twist about this show is that there are just three episodes left in season 1. If True Detective is renewed -- practically a given at this point -- season 2 will have a whole new story, setting, and cast. It's almost impossible to imagine who can take the place of McConaughey and Harrelson, who have delivered such amazing performances this season ... but that doesn't mean the Internet hasn't given it a shot.
Via the magic of the Twitter hashtag #TrueDetectiveSeason2, here are some of the funniest suggestions for who should be cast next season:
(OH MY GOD THE YELLOW KING!!!!)
Ahahahahahahaaaaaa, these are so awesome. Thank you, Internet, for taking some of the sting away from the fact that this phenomenal first season is almost over.
Are you a True Detective fan?
