    FWIW, for anyone who still enjoys the written word (admittedly I do, even if it's on a Nook), Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and writer of this series is a published author. I'm just starting this one now:

    Galveston:

    http://www.amazon.com/Galveston-Nove.../dp/1439166668
    snippets:
    From the creator, writer, and executive producer of the HBO crime series True Detective, comes a dark and visceral literary debut set along the seedy wastelands of Galveston.

    On the same day that Roy Cady is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he senses that his boss, a dangerous loan-sharking bar-owner, wants him dead. Known “without affection” to members of the boss’s crew as “Big Country” on account of his long hair, beard, and cowboy boots, Roy is alert to the possibility that a routine assignment could be a deathtrap. Which it is. Yet what the would-be killers do to Roy Cady is not the same as what he does to them, which is to say that after a smoking spasm of violence, they are mostly dead and he is mostly alive.
    Recalling the moody violence of the early novels of Cormac McCarthy and Denis Johnson, this powerful, potent, and atmospheric thriller is impossible to put down. Constructed with maximum tension and haunting aftereffect, written in darkly beautiful prose, Galveston announces the arrival of a major new literary talent.

    Just watched all the episodes yesterday. I am officially addicted. My only issue is the abrupt ending to Marty's first mistress' storyline. I was hoping she would be a main character, I will hold on to hope that she returns.

    Now that you've acquired a belated appreciation for this exceptional short series, whether you decide to rewatch it as many do to pick up the nuances and subtleties, not to mention the core of Cohle's existentialism, or not, this is a pretty insightful episode by episode forum discussion on the show. Once the mysteries are resolved or not, I think I'll wait a month or so for perspective sake, read some of the theories on boards and from its creator and then intently watch all 8 episodes again.

    FWIW, this is a 2010 NY Times book review, by one of my favorite authors, Dennis Lehane regarding Nic's only novel, "Galveston" which was just picked up to be made into a movie. As you can see, Pizzolatto is more than capable of spinning authentic, heavily-nuanced, many-layered, unsympathetic realistic fictional stories that may involve "reclamation but not quite redemption" , so as far as tonight's finale is concerned, no outcome would surprise me.
