I think I can speak for a great many people when I say that I am truly, madly, deeply in love with HBO's current original series, True Detective (Sundays @ 9pm est.).
The show, created by Nic Pizzolato, aired last month and is now coming on it's seventh episode. It stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as Louisiana-based homicide detectives Marty Hart and Rust Cohle on a 17-year hunt for a serial killer.
Since there are only two more episodes remaining in the short but inspired first season, I have taken the opportunity to seek out some fantastic SPOILER-FREE examples of fan art. Please enjoy, and if you haven't seen the show yet, it is not too late to discover your latest obsession.

*Editor's note:  True Detective is a favorite of mine as well, so it gets the Fascination with Fear shout-out of approval!  Do check it out, as well as more fantastic art to come in our recurring feature, Dark Arts. / ch

I love it as well and did a post on it after the first episode. Truly one of the greatest mini-series of all time. It's all in the writing.

I loved the first six episodes. Came up with a wild theory even. The last two episodes, however, fell apart and it became a standard procedural. Looking at how the story played out there are so many missed opportunities and just strange choices that I have to say I haven't been this disappointed in quite some time.

Mr Xploit: I really loved it too, and agree that the writing was truly exquisite, for lack of a better word. I can't wait to see who they pair up for next season.

Doug: I'd have to disagree with you on that, I loved the series in its entirety. The writing was just so good, and damn if the acting wasn't near-perfect! I really have no complaints. I loved all the Ambrose Bierce/Carcosa/Lovecraftian tie-in, it was brilliant.
