HBO’s terrifying journey into the heart of darkness that is the backwoods of Louisiana, True Detective, doesn’t debut until this Sunday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give yourself a taste of what you’re in for. This morning, HBO released a clip from the Cory Fukunaga-directed limited series featuring its two stars, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, the titular detectives, on what might just be the most uncomfortable car ride since that one time I accidentally watched the trailer for Guilt Trip.
In case their sparkling personalities and the promise of mysterious murder weren’t enough to get you to tune in this Sunday night at 9 p.m., then maybe the chance to take a sneak peek of Westerosi goodness will. Yesterday, it was announced that the first trailer for Game of Thrones’ fourth season would air immediately before True Detective, so that ought to be enough to tide you over until its April 6th premiere. And if not, then maybe its time you take the Black and fight crime in Louisiana or whatever the mash-up of these two shows would look like.
