Can you betray someone by not doing something? Is Rust aware he’s part of a story? True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 9/8C) became much more than just another murder mystery right from its premiere. The series has called into question various philosophies; the nature of the universe; the concept of fate, and whether a person’s character can change. In tonight’s episode, Haunted Houses, things simultaneously begin to come together and fall apart.

Read a review of Haunted Houses and check out a sneak peek of a key moment (warning: F-Bomb alert) after the jump.

HBO’s True Detective (Sundays, 10/9C) is something of an anomaly in American television – every episode was written by series creator Nic Pizzalotto and every episode was directed by the same director, Cary Fukanaga. It’s a unique vision that features some of the best work by its leads – Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Which is saying one heckuva lot. My review includes a teaser for tonight’s episode, The Locked Room – check it out after the jump.

True Detective is rapidly becoming one of my favorite new shows. As the above clip shows, it is setting the bar when it comes to being creepy/disturbing without the need for any supernatural elements – just working within the development of character and events surrounding a particularly strange murder investigation (or maybe the strange investigation of a particular murder…).

Follow the jump for an inside look at the show’s second episode, Seeing Things.

True Detective (HBO, Sundays, 10/9C) has turned out to be a deeply creepy series about two detectives working a horrifying murder in 1995 and having their brains picked about a similar murder seventeen years later. It features some of the best work in the careers of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.

Follow the jump to see a brief teaser clip from the show’s second episode, Family Man.

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, like Inception, has been behind a veil of secrecy that is not lifted by the release of the trailer. Instead, we get a mood piece with narration by Matthew McConaughey pondering on when the moments when humanity is at its finest. It’s intriguing, beguiling and does what a teaser should do – it teases.

Interstellar will be in theaters in November 2014.
