Nic Pizzolatto has his flaws as a writer and seems a bit too sure of himself but I'm interested in seeing more from him...he has an old school neo-noir crime film writing style that harkens back to a different time
I put off watching S2 because of the reviews but finally did watch this week. It didn't have the atmospherics of S1 but overall I thought the story was more complex and interesting so no letdown for me at all. The gun battle with the Mexicans was spectacular and the way the Black Rose scenes were overlaid with hauntingly poignant songs was brilliant IMO...

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

I like Nic Pizzolatto because his stories are very complex, confusing and ultimately entertaining...he's a writer who doesn't dumb things down or cater to the masses and maybe that's why he's an acquired taste...he has his flaws but I like his brand of storytelling
