I think the majority or all of the first season is directed by Fukunaga, which most excites me. I was under the impression that he was the creator as well, but apparently I am wrong there.

I have watched the trailer too many times to count...

(I'm going to fire it up again, right now.)

Yes! Can't wait. So far it's getting good reviews.

And yes, apparently all eight episodes are directed by Fukunaga and written by Nic Pizzolatto.

There certainly haven't been enough serial killer shows lately.

The writer of the series, Nic Pizzolatto, answers this concern on pg 2 of
this interview when asked: How did you try to approach this so that it didn't just feel like a copy of a copy of 16 other things?

yes, but after watching its first episode I'd say TD has nothing to do with them: very original treatment, more a psychology thing than a whodunit, at the same time the first episode left a lot of questions - about what happened in 1995, about what happened in 2012, who are these guys? what happened between them? - I can't wait to watch the next one.
I gather we have only one writer and only one director here, is it a first time?

This is the show with Harrelson and McCon in it? I have to find this. Generic isn't a dirty term.
