True Detective
Firstly, if you're not watching HBO's "True Detective," you're doing it wrong. One of the best things going on TV right now — if not the best, period — the drama series has proven to be fantastically written and richly entertaining, with a murder mystery woven across a couple of decades, in a case that continues to haunt the detectives played by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. But this past weekend's episode "Who Goes There" (full recap here) kicked things up a notch.

Game Of Thrones
“Some of the most shocking and mindblowing scenes of the entire series come at the end of this coming season,” writer/co-creator David Benioff teases for fans in "Fire and Ice Foreshadowing," a lengthy 15-minute preview of "Game Of Thrones" season 4. Meanwhile, Peter Dinklage says that the show will top the Red Wedding from season 3. Those are some bold promises.

Compromise. It's something that, as you get older, you learn to navigate with the pragmatism of being an adult. But when you're younger, it can be difficult to understand and exercise. In "Free Snacks," it finds Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) all trading off grander aspirations for what they can realistically acquire at the moment, though it will be met with difficulty, pain or just cold indifference.

Over the course of three episodes, "True Detective" has been a steadily ratcheting the tension as Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) track down a serial killer that is haunting the surreal South like a monster. Last week's "The Locked Room" concluded with a goosebump-raising closing shot of the wanted, parole-breaking ex-convict Reggie Ledoux as he prowled across some as yet discovered landscape, as the cops tried to find him. He's the man Martin and Rust think is good for a number of murders, and kicking off "Who Goes There," they're on the hunt.

Mozart In The Jungle
If Amazon Studios is trying to get into the streaming game alongside Netflix, they've got to step up their PR game a bit. While we did know they had put a bunch of pilots online this week, including Roman Coppola's "Mozart In The Jungle," we had no idea some peeks via clips were available too. In fact, we stumbled across these completely by accident—but we're glad we did.

Since this humble little blog emerged into existence, we've been reporting in fits and starts on the tortured development of "Preacher." The Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic has been through sixteen years of ever changing development, as the project has gone from being a movie, to a TV series, and back and forth, while no shortage of names both in front and behind the camera tried to get it going including Sam Mendes, Darren Aronofsky, Joe Carnahan, D.J. Caruso, Chris Pine, Shia LaBeouf and Alex Pettyfer. But now, it's actually happening for real with an unlikely duo taking it on.
