Nope, not at all. Most intellectuals I know are definitely alcoholics....in fact, I hung out with two of them on the 4th and they were beyond drunk.

Guys, all I'm trying to say is that it seemed out of place. When I heard them agree that they both felt apoplectic, it struck me as a strange way for them to communicate with one another. You don't have to be a genius to know how to use the appropriately, but I'll be damned if I get shot in the chest a couple times that I'm going to talk about how friggin apoplectic I am about it........You know, the more I think about it, the more ridiculous it is.

True, but I didn't get that impression watching it play out on-screen.
The characters appeared to understand the definition of the word just fine.
Of course, it's just my interpretation of the scene.

Gangsters would use words along the lines of "f*cking pi$$ed," absolutely not "apoplectic."
This was completely pretentious Hollywood writer nonsense.

Agree, that bit of dialogue was extrinsic to the flow of conversation.

Is there any character on the show besides Bezzerides who doesn't have erectile dysfunction?

I'd guess that VV and CF are getting paid substantially more than the other actors, and their contracts require they get more airtime than anyone else. I can think of no other explanation for some of their scenes. Let's have Vince look pensively off into space. Now it's time for Colin to brood some more with those eyebrows.

I like the slow build up of this show,nice amount of creepy as well. I will admit I struggled through the first episode, but by the end of the 3rd I became fully invested. I found Vaughn seemed to improve his performance with each episode and it was cool to see Remo Williams is retired and smoking chronic. Hopefully the trend continues and each episode gets a bit better.

Yeah, it was...at times.


DW was one of those few instances I gave showrunners a break due to the excellence in other areas.
Having uneducated, sh!tlickers caked in mud and cow poop from the Ol' West sound like Shakespearian characters was a little jarring.

As Giles said in Buffy: The subtext is rapidly becoming text.

This show is a college thesis that writes itself. True Detective aka Angsty Cop Drama: American Masculinity and Its Discontents.

Well CF and VV are the main characters of the show (much like MM and WH were last season). That is a pretty good reason they get more screen time not sure it's a "contract" thing as the creator really had his pick of folks and could get almost anything he wanted I would think.
