I Could Bring Myself to Watch That

HBO is usually a no-go for me. I don't hate nudity so much as I don't care for poorly simulated and largely gratuitous sex scenes. Also I like the assurance that something graphic and horrible isn't going to happen because it's a day that ends in "Y"; and the Home Box Office can't deliver on any of those issues. In fact they seem to derive great glee in their exact opposites.

But this True Detective is a show that I feel could be done right. I haven't watched it, but it's been a long time since the thing that some people label "weird fiction" saw decent treatment on the screen. I could bring myself to financially support  the right product, if only I could be assured that such a thing was being brought to term.
