T-Bone Burnett made what I would consider an almost prefect selection for Season One's theme song .. the haunting lyrics combined with almost a 1950's feel backbeat and chord work just fit .. I'd speculate Season 2 will feature something new yet equally good ..
I'd been working on a re-watch of Season one during the last week or two and finally finished last night .. it was even better the second time around as I began to pick out more nuance and detail .. I think if I remember correctly, after the finale last year, there was some grumbling here on how it ended .. I think it ended well .. sure, there was somewhat of a lack in resolving key questions, but I think, in the end, it was much more about the journey of Rust and Marty than about the monster lurking at the end ... they got their man, they almost died trying and they achieved not just justice but some closure .. Marty reconnected with his family and his mojo, Rust tied off the emotional time-loop on the loss of his daughter .. and most importantly, they finally got each other ..
Very much looking forward to Season 2 .. and if Nic Pizzolatto ever decides to write a book series on the continuing saga of Rust and Marty, I'll be first in line ..
