They also said that McConaughey couldn't be found for 8 years then just showed up again.
They'll fill in the holes with each upcoming episode so questions like this are answered.

8 episodes.

Top of the Lake, another great show in the same vein, only had 6.

Yes and no- I mentioned it before. They have fully planned on a number of additional seasons. The difference being that the new season will be a new case and different cast. The idea is to attract A list (movie) talent that would otherwise never be available to do a seasonal project year in and year out.

The attraction stems from having the script for the entire season speak for itself as a draw to the project.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson said they just looked at it like a 450 page movie script. The quality of the work was why they wanted to do it.

The head writer was adamant about the anthology format of the show, and would have refused HBO if they weren't on board, because he believes any great story requires a strong third act. It's where, "all that investment, should naturally find a satisfying payoff."

Clearly something that wouldn't work if the show was serialized and had to bend to any continuation of another upcoming season.

While clearly not on the same level, think back to the old Tales from the Crypt series on HBO. As the show gained in popularity, they often featured well known actors for the individual episodes.

Saw some whispers of Season 2 speculation that some of the names that may star Daniel Craig, Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, Vanessa Redgrave, Alan Rickman, James Nesbitt, Jamie Bell, Emily Blount, & Ian McKellen.

I wonder if that would mean a duel storyline with a contemporaneous and flashback story arc?

I would think that if there's a fake out, it's actually Harrelson they suspect. That the weird hobo-looking alcoholic with no furniture who disappeared for years might be a killer would be a pretty obvious path to take.

But right from the first episode they're showing that Harrelson's character isn't the person he seems to be. And McConaughey couldn't have anything to do with the missing girl from years earlier.

This is kinda what American Horror Story has done. Just not as big name of stars.

Watched it last night and really enjoyed it.

As others have said McConaughey is knocking it out of the park.

Yep, though I've never watched AHS, I've heard it's a pretty good series. Maybe next October I'll give it a go for a good scary movie, supernatural genre show for the Halloween season.

I think it is why they kept asking Harrelson's character about his relationship with McConaughey's.
Interesting. I thought the way they were interviewing them was because Rust never thought they got the right guy. Hart and everyone else just assumed Rust was crazy and/or overly obsessed and couldn't let it go until this new case popped up. I assumed thats why they eventually had a blowup and weren't speaking anymore.

Some folks i seen at other forums are talking about how they think Rust banged Woodies old lady. This would cause them to break apart when he found out years later. Cant wait to see where it goes.

They definitely set up Rust and the wife hooking up. Question is whether that was a red herring or not.
