My only regret is that I didn't wait two more weeks so that I could watch the entire thing at the same time.

The show is so intense and so packed full of details that I don't like watching more than two episodes at a time. It's draining.
Also, McConaughey just kills it in this show. Absolutely kills it. Possibly the best television performance I've ever seen.

I'm kinda sick of the whole (a la "The Wire"):
"Boss, just give us one more week. We're thiiis close to nailing this sucker."

Woody must've had a deal in his contract where he's able to have a nude scene with at least 3 very attractive ladies. He knows what he's doing.

But the last four? They lost some steam, took it down a peg for me overall. Brilliant acting and very engaging mystery, but ultimately I think the conclusion left me a bit sour.

I quite enjoyed the ending and how it ramped up to the conclusion. I have no idea how they're going to match this season next time around.

I liked the show but I didn't quite love it as much as others. Good acting though.
The acting was brilliant and the dialogue with Marty and Rust was phenomenal throughout the series.
I think what puts this show a notch below Breaking Bad was the climax of the story felt out of tune with the rest. For 4 episodes (you could argue 5 or 6 probably) we got a gritty look at the nature of this mystery and every week was a chance to fall a bit deeper down the rabbit hole. Then, all of a sudden, a Law and Order episode broke out and we got Evil Groundskeeper Willy complete with a lot of token "crazy" elements as our big villan all figured out (rather conveniently and implausibly) in one hour. Then, worst of all, we had a neat and tidy wrap-up to it without really finding out all the different connections the case had so interestingly brought up through the course of the investigation.
I was left wanting either a less pretty ending or, if it was going to be pretty, a clearer and more laid out one. We got closure on the relationship of the detectives, but not on the larger case much of that relationship was built around for the season.
I'm being very critical, it's still an absolutely fantastic show that I'd highly recommend, but I lost some of my passion for it as it went on. The first four episodes were freaking awesome...it might just have been setting the bar so high it never was going to be able to live up to the expectations.
