True Detective – Episode 8 (Season Finale) Omega Station
Spoiler Alert – Everything is ending. Time to wake up. – Frank
I’m not going to hide it but I am really disappointed in this season finale for Season Two of True Detective. I am defiently having mixed feelings about this episode. Personally, I thought this season of TD was quite stellar with the new editions of Colin, Vince, Taylor and Rachel. Along with the new location in Los Angeles and a new crime to solve, it was pretty interesting to watch. Although there were many critics, who thought this season did not match up to the caliber of last season of True Detective. TD had it’s up and downs but it manage to bounce back before the season ending. The episode before this was a good one even though we had to watch the heroic Woodrugh go out in a tough way. I guess going into the last episode of True Detective, I was hoping for a better ending for the rest of the cast but I guess the writers wanted to keep it real and show you what would have really happened and not some Hollywood bullshit ending.
I’m not going to go into detail in what happened during the season finale because I want the rest of the readers to make a judgement call themselves if they like the ending of True Detective this season but I think you’re smart enough to know that a lot of the characters didn’t make it out of this episode. I loved the whole episode all the way up til the last thirty minutes, then it became all to predictable. Ray had to say goodbye to his son even though he didn’t have any time to waste, which lead to his death and Frank trying to tie up loose ends trying to get away from his gangsta past but it finally caught up with him with the cartel, stabbing him leaving there to walk the desert like some sorta of atonement for his sins. Then you got Ani, who she finally met someone as fucked up as herself but it is taken away from her immediately. Leaving her with Frank’s widow in some foreign country telling their stories to a reporter, hoping for some justice.
But I get it.
This world is fucked up with bad people doing bad things, which good people don’t get the justice they deserve. But fuck man, sometimes I’m just a sucka for a story book ending.
Don’t get me wrong, I love stories where the hero or the anti-hero doesn’t make it in the end, but I was hoping and pulling for Ray and Frank to get out of the shit storm they were dealing with this season. It was just so anti-climatic the way they went out in the end, but I guess we never envision how it would really go down in the end. As Frank tells Ray, “Did you ever picture your life going this way?”
I might have to watch again but right now I’m feeling a bit let down. Regardless, I still think this season of True Detective as a whole was terrific with amazing acting and great storylines. Colin Ferrell is never bad in anything he does, Taylor Kitsch performance was great showing all of us why he’s more than a pretty face just like Rachel McAdams, which I think she finally shed that funny cute girl persona that we all know her from with this gritty performance this season. But I think the best performance this season, has to go to Vince Vaughn, which he absolutely killed it after his slow start during the season, he came out strong in the end. We saw him thriving on top of the mountain, only to be thrown back to the bottom with the wolves but he showed us why he was on top of the mountain in the first place. I loved seeing Vince in funny movie roles but I can’t wait to see him in more serious roles because he has the acting chops to do so.
I guess in the end the critics where right. This second season of True Detective would not live up to expectations to the first season. But the first season of TD was so amazing, just trying to attempt another season of that caliber is insane and ballsy. As Norman Vincent Peale, the author of Positive Thinking, eloquently puts it,
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
Is that much better than being down here with the mortals? At least up there, you’ll live forever. Congrats to the writers and cast members of True Detective for a wonderful season. RIP Ray and Frank, I hope they are sharing a bar booth together in hell or heaven with that depressing bar singer, drinking shitty beer and Black Label goodness.
- Who had a better fucked up story? Ani’s weird cabin abduction with uncle creepy or Ray’s I shot the wrong dude story. Also, was this foreplay or high-level awkwardness after motel sex.
- Frank had a touching scene with his wife at the train station, but throwing the big ass rock was insane.
- “You can’t act for shit.” Frank’s wife – You bite your tongue woman before he motor boats the shit out of you
- Vince Vaughn I believe had the best lines this season besides Colin Ferrell. Also, he had the most guns. All those guns and he used like two in the cabin scene. “Never lay down for anyone.”
- Great short scene with Frank and Ani as Frank thinks Ani is a cop: “What gave me way? My Tits?”
- Ray shows love for Frank as Ani asks about his gangsta buddy: “He’s actually a good guy.”
- Did Ray’s son try to trade his father’s badge in that game of Life?
- Damn it I can’t believe that ginger bastard is not Carrot Top’s son!
- If you found Ray’s phone, would you delete the message or send it. I think it would have been dope if you were high as shit listening to Ray rambling on being lost in his life.
- Woodrugh gets a highway named out of him, so his widow can look at it crying every time she drives over to collect her welfare checks.
- Ani is going to be a great mom. She’s going to teach his son the Art of the Bushido and how kill a man under three minutes.
- The sprawl of Los Angeles made me fall in love with this fucked up city again, even though I would leave in a drop of hat if I had another opportunity but I will always call this fucked up place, home.

True Detective – Episode 7 Black Maps and Motel Rooms
Spoiler Alert – Being in the closet might Kill You
With only two episodes left of True Detective, this episode did not fail to meet our expectations for the show because it was simply so entertaining and suspenseful. I was at the edge my seat this whole episode after the last episode with the sex party orgy, which I watched several times for clues about the case of course for the show. (You perverts) The League of Justice are dealing with the aftermath of what they did, which was saving a girl, grabbing information about secret land deals and killing a man with a butter knife. The mark of a good story, show or movie has always been when they kill a likeable character in order to better the storyline making the entire piece more believable and entertaining. This second to last episode of TD had everything you wanted in an episode including those devious plot twists.
Starting with the full-blown gangsta Frank Semyon, played by Vince Vaughn, who had the best performance besides from Taylor Kitsch because he finally embraced what he really is, which is a gangsta but still hates being called that. After beating and killing is former BFF, he finds out that everyone is out to get him from the start. He tells his boys to “lock it up” and “batten down the hatches,” cause Hurricane Frank is coming for everyone as he gets his ducks in a row. He tells his wife to go on an extended vacation because he has to clean house before he goes on his going away voyage. I loved seeing Vince being a tough guy in this episode even though I laughed each time he delivered a tough guy line. I can’t wait what he has in store for us in the finale, which I hope he starts wearing that “Fuck You,” grille. The other two gangstas aren’t feeling so gangsta at all because Ray and Ani are feeling like they have been played.
Ani is dealing with the fallout with being in that sex party being drugged, remembering a painful memory that she suppressed, which brought up some fucked up feelings. She shared those feelings with her holistic hippy spiritual nut of a father but he just regretted not taking those knives away from her. To make it worse the girl who Ani saved tells her that she wasn’t forced to be there. She liked having gross European men over the age of 50 gangbang her all over a weird cabin in the woods. She tells her family that they are not safe and need to leave ASAP Rocky.
Meanwhile, Ray is still trying to be a good guy for change as he stops Ani’s sexual advances for him when she was high on molly, which was pretty impressive to see coming from Ray. But I guess I wouldn’t be turned on as well, after seeing Ani kill a man under 3 minutes. It’s like getting a hard-on watching Ronda Rousey beat the shit out of some under qualified competitor. Ray and Ani put the pieces together as he tries to present the case to the State Attorney but someone caps her with one of Ray’s guns totally making Ray and Ani as the fall guys. Ray and Ani are fugitives, which they have to rely on Woodrugh because he’s the only clean one now. But as all know now that Woodrugh has plenty of ghosts in his closet, which can scare anyone.
Woodrugh gets a sexted with a picture of his Marine buddy, playing Battlefield with their penises. If you didn’t understand that picture Brokeback Mountain as Marines and Woodrugh being a sergeant having to physically discipline his soldiers HARD. (Sorry, I had to.) As he gets closer in solving the case he gets black mailed with the pictures with his buddy. Woodrugh feels like his cover has been blown so he brings his trailer trash mom and baby mama to a motel room for old school romantic movies and room service. I believed Taylor Kitsch gave his best performance besides the episode with that wicked street gunfight, in which his performance tonight was so good. You could feel every emotion coming off him. This whole season he was running away from his demons. He even wanted to kill himself a couple of times this season, but in the end just like the rest of all of us. We all want to live. Woodrugh gets trapped by a secret catalyst security force, which he has to fight out again in order to survive. I don’t know about you but I wanted him to survive because it seems like he just had a really shit life and he was just started a family. But life isn’t fair and only bad men get away with it in the end.
I loved the homage to season one of True Detective as Ani tells Ray that he isn’t a bad man, which Ray replies that I am a bad man. In season one Martin asks Rust this question, which Rust replies giving the tone of season.
Martin: You wonder ever if you’re a bad man?
Rust: No I don’t wonder Marty. The world needs bad men. We keep the other bad men from the door.
We need Ray and Ani to figuratively be bad men including gangsta ass Frank to be really bad asses in the season finale, which is fucking 90 minutes long. (Amazing) They need to be tough as nail because the men at the door are bad as fuck. The world still needs bad men to keep other bad men from the door.
- Ray “You want me to roll a joint?” Always
- Ray telling she’s out of his league. Agh, dude don’t you have a crazy hot brunette wife?
- How much do you love Frank’s wife commitment to this relationship? Dude is dead on the office floor, honey you need to go on a trip.
- Frank “I found a brand new orifice so I can fuck myself.” – Classic
- Difference between a pimp and a whore? – A whore can still have integrity
- “You fucked up being alone in this room.” – I’m going to say that every time I’m alone with anyone, totally scare the shit out of them.
- “Look me in the eyes, I want to see your lights go out.” Hardest gangsta line I’ve heard from Frank.
- I can see Frank working at Applebees but I would always be afraid he wouldn’t come back with my bottomless refill of fries because he is always checking out for gas leaks trying to blow up the restaurant.
- Is being a captain on a ship on Frank’s wishlist along with automatic weapons and unregistered cars?
- How hot was that fake fireplace in that motel? I want the same fake fireplace the next time I have awkward sex with a person I totally don’t know.
- The kidnapped girl totally shut down Ani: “You were put on Earth more than Fucking.” To which she replies: “Everything is fucking.” In your face knife girl!
- 3 hugs in one day is a record of Ani but not killing a man under 3 minutes because she can do that in her sleep.
- Woodrugh was the toughest closet war veteran I’ve ever seen. RIP Paul Woodrugh

True Detective | World Needs Bad Men

True Detective – Episode 6 Church in Ruins
Spoiler Alert – Don’t bring knives to an Orgy
What a comeback from last week’s boring episode of True Detective. This episode had everything you wanted in an episode of TD. For example, it had Frank being what he hates being called a gangsta, Ray being his old wild threatening abusive self again, and tons of T & A. Plenty of people were disappointed including me with last week’s episode after that insane standoff that killed a shit load of people but TD followed it up with a so-so episode that made a lot of people wonder if the writers blew their load early in the season but once again I was happy to be proved wrong again. True Detective is back on track being one of best shows on tv because they aren’t afraid to kill a man with a butter knife in a middle of an orgy.
We will get to the awesome sex party orgy in a second but we have to start off where the last episode left us, which was with Frank and Ray being “Friends” having a normal cup of coffee where they were about to kill each other because Frank gave the wrong information to Ray about his wife’s rapists. But the two men came to an understanding that they didn’t want to die in Frank’s breakfast nook in Glendale. Both men showed their sensitive and violent sides this episode as they acted like nurturing fathers as well as calculating killers. As Frank consoles a young kid, who’s father has recently died. It was nice to see this other side of Frank being nice to a kid, who wasn’t his. Maybe it will change his mind about adoption but his main concern this whole season is gaining back his empire as it leads him to a girl, who might know where that video recorder is but in Frank’s desperation he gets mixed up with the wrong kind of crowd as the Cartel kills the girl because she was working with the cops. Speaking of desperation Ray is finally had enough being on the straight and boring path.
As the old Ray that we loved in the beginning of the season comes back in full force this episode. After finding out that he killed the wrong rapists, Ray decides to find the real rapists in jail already, which he tells him that he his lucky that he’s behind bars because he was going to fuck him up in a hot minute. Ray was so pumped up that he was going to kill another rapists that he needed to celebrate to let off a little steam. After he came down, he had a bit of clarity about his son, which he thought it was better for the kid that Ray wasn’t doing to be in his life because it was having a negative effect on the kid. So, he comes to understanding with his ex that he would stay away if she doesn’t tell the kid the truth about his real dad, which is probably the guy from Harry Potter. Speaking of whores and wizards, Ani gets caught up in an undercover operation with Ray and Woodrugh, where she pretends to be a high price hooker in a sex party.
First off, Ani cleans up nicely after a scene with her sister playing with knives looking tougher than Taylor Kitsche. She gets to the party looking like hot dime piece but people always forget that she was a Mean Girl back in the day. Security drugs Ani along with the other girls in order to put them in the mood for the weird sex orgy. Ani tries to stay focus but the drugs start to take effect but not before she finds her missing persons and the boys find clues about land deals with Vinci. The Three Amigos getaway unharmed but unfortunately Ani had to kill a man, which wasn’t the worse part as we could see that she has some underlying issues with her past with a guy that looked like Gallagher the comedian, who murders watermelons. This episode totally killed the last episode, which I hope it continues to rock.
I super glad that True Detective is back on track and with ONLY TWO EPISODES LEFT, I hope it all goes down with a BANG!!!
- Who do you think would actually win in a staring contest between Ray & Frank?
- Ray isn’t Whistling Dixie. That rapists has a cheese grader to his balls in his future.
- I love how Ray’s son watches Friends. Ray is totally Ross and his bitch wife is Rachel.
- That was a huge mount of blow. People forget you can have a moment of clarity about your life after you drink, sort all the drugs and destroy your apartment.
- Mexican Standoff with actual Mexicans
- Does Frank’s Bucket List include avocado trees and Fuck You grilles?
- Pure MDMA spray? That’s on my Bucket List. I need that my life ASAP Rocky!!!
- Ani doesn’t get Art but ass play she’s all about it.
- Ani was totally turned on at the weird sex orgy party right?
- I wouldn’t be happy in that party because I couldn’t stay focus because there is too much T & A!!! That’s a titty and ass overload for anyone, high or sober!
- Ani had better knife work when she was high as fuck. That dude did die under 3 mins or less.
- Great outro song tonight with the band Black Angels “Black Grease”

Spoiler Alert: Nobody got hurt during the 4DX experience
One of my favorite cartoons back in the day was Ant Man because he was not your typical super hero, even though he did have all the super powers of an Ant, but I liked how the cartoon did not take itself seriously because essentially it was a guy in an ant costume solving and preventing crimes. So, when I heard they were doing an Ant Man movie, I was super excited but then I saw the trailer for the movie, which I felt a bit disappointed that they didn’t go with the animated version of it with the goofy costume. But the nerd in me was going to see the movie regardless if wasn’t as true as the original, which I was pleasantly surprised on how fun the movie was, in which the 4DX experience probably helped with the overall experience.
4DX allows a motion picture presentation to be augmented with environmental effects such as seat motion, wind, rain, fog, lights, and scents along with the standard video and audio. My mom was raving about it when she traveled a year ago telling me the seats moved. So, I figured Ant Man was a great film to try out in 4DX. The movie itself was fun and exciting.
The Ant Man costume wasn’t that bad at all, which I actually thought it was pretty cool on how effective and multi-functioning his suit was during the film. Paul Rudd did an amazing job as the wise cracking cat burglar turned super hero, who loves his adorable daughter. He is willing to do anything to be with her, so he was to help out Michael Douglas character by stealing another version of the Ant Man costume because it would do more harm than good. Evangeline Lilly plays Michael Douglas’s daughter, which I have been a big fan of hers ever since Lost and lately for The Hobbit. She is so hot and she’s an amazing actress, which she was the one of the reasons why like the movie, but of course the 4DX experience totally put me over the top.
The prices for a 4DX movie is more expensive than your regular movie tickets. Two adults tickets for 4DX came out to close to $50 dollars, along with parking and concession snacks, it comes out to a very taxing day at the movies. But it was worth every dime because it felt like was watching a movie on a rollercoaster. The seats moved along with the action of the movie as water sprinkled on you anytime it was involved, plus you get a light and smoke show on top of the movie.
I thought the 4DX was amazing but is too expensive for any regular movie watching experience. It’s great if you have the money to splurge on expensive movie tickets but I think the 4DX is worth the money for special occasions. I would recommend watching Ant Man because it’s a fun family oriented movie and if you have the dough check it out in 4DX because it’s totally worth the expensive prices.

True Detective – Episode 4 Down will Come
Spoiler Alert – All those dead people from the shootout will not comeback as White Walkers
After a thrilling episode, where three of our characters of True Detective got caught up in a Meth lab shoot out, where cops and innocent people died, it took a toll on all three. Now each one of them are dealing with the fallout due to that horrible event. It’s been a good season so far but tonight’s episode was kinda weak and boring like Jessica Fletcher, which was expected after that crazy shoot out but I hoping True Detective picks up again. I don’t remember the first season of True Detective having a dull moment. But I guess nothing good last forever as we can see in this episode with all the characters leading different lives.
Frank had to move from his mansion because of his financial situation and now runs the club full-time. His wife is totally not on board with his decision but she is willing to stick it out because she is still in love with him. Up til now Frank has done everything for her, but I wonder if leading this old/ new life will jeopardize her life as well as his. But Frank is just trying to hold on to what he has keeping his friends close but even closer with his enemies as he tells Ray, who now works for Frank because he quit being a detective to follow one of his men because he doesn’t trust him. Speaking of trust I don’t Ray’s wife trusts him at all with his kid.
As Ray is fighting tooth and nail with his wife for custody for his kid, in which his lawyer tells him he needs to make more money because lawyers don’t come cheap. But Ray gets an opportunity from the attorney general to help find the real killer of Casper along with the old crew of Ani and Woodrugh. The attorney general promises him that if he does this job, he will not lose his son. For Ani and Woodrugh they want to solve this case in order to go back to their old lives as detectives.
After the fallout of the shootout, Ani isn’t a detective anymore having to be repositioned to another post in the department as evidence locker nanny. As for Woodrugh, not also is he dealing with the shootout incident, he is also still dealing with that sexual harassment incident with the Hollywood actress. Not to mention he has to deal with his new family and his crazy ass mom. But all these characters are willing to do whatever it takes to get back to their old/new lives because they all believe they deserve more.
The fans of True Detective also deserve more, which I’m hoping that this episode was just a bump in the road for what has been a stellar season of True Detective with excellent storylines and amazing acting. I understand that season one set the bar pretty high but I have hope that the rest of the season can rise to everyone’s expectations. I really hope it isn’t “Back Slide City” for his show.
- Nobody is excited to move to Glendale
- Damn it Ray, not the mustache!!!
- What is that recorder for? It can’t be for Ray’s son because he wouldn’t understand any of existentialism ideas he’s talking about unless he put them in Justin Bieber examples. Like why is he famous, he’s not talented at all?
- The sexual harassment meeting for Ani was hysterical. “I really like big dicks, not length but girth. I really have trouble handcuffin that thing. It’s a safe circle isn’t? – Hell yeah it is. Let her share.”
- I loved Frank’s art piece of the anaconda and the crocodile.
- The Mexican version of the Cisco Kid
- “Blue Balls in your heart.” I’m Chinese, then stand in front of a tank.” – Classic Frank
- Frank hates the word “gangsta” and “infertilization.”
- I can see Frank as an Organic Farmer that hates to grow anything
- What the hell Woodrugh’s mom buy with 20 grand? Definitely not a new trailer trash RV.
- Did Frank really set up Ray with the wrong rapist? Lucy we need a talk…
