Talking TV: The love/hate experience of 'True Detective'

“Breaking Bad’s” Walter White was not, as it seemed, the last gasp of the antihero tyrannical hold on TV, but HBO’s “True Detective” may be.

Although it is impossible not to admire the performances by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, “True Detective’s” fetishistic love of the sweaty messed up man, at the expense of every woman in a 10-mile radius, is drawing as much criticism as its premiere drew raves.

Twitter has been serving up hilarious wish lists for Season 2 — the Olsen twins? “Seinfeld’s” Jerry and George?  — but should HBO maybe go more “Cagney & Lacey"? Join TV reporter Yvonne Villarreal, TV critic Mary McNamara and industry columnist Joe Flint at noon to discuss the past, present and future of “True Detective.”
