    The upcoming season sounds like... something you'll have to tell me about.

      I didn't mention this in the diary, but one thing I love about True Detective's anthology format is that it's a story with a beginning, middle, and end told over a single season. There are no red herrings to drag things out. There are no pulling of punches with character choices because you want to save it for season 2.

      In fact, AMC's The Killing wanted to be what True Detective is, but it fell into all of those traps by trying to drag the story out over multiple seasons.

      Brody's story was pretty much over in season 1, and Homeland should have concluded it in the season finale. He either should of died or went to prison, and Carrie moved on to another storyline in season 2. By dragging it out so long, I've lost all confidence the writers have a logical direction for the next arc.
