Have you watched and rewatched and re-rewatched “True Detective’s” first five episodes yet? There are only three episodes left to go in this story arc on the show, and it’s gotten to the point where even President Obama can’t wait to find out what happens next.
Apparently star Matthew McConaughey didn’t have to struggle through the waiting game like the rest of viewers do. He reveals on “The Queen Latifah Show” Friday (Feb. 21) that he originally was given all eight episodes of “True Detective” up front, but then decided to watch week after week like everyone else is. And he is equally obsessed with it.
“They sent me all eight episodes a couple of months ago and I started to watch them, and I said, ‘No, I want to do what everybody else does: I want to watch one a week and then sit on it a week,'” he says. “I go back and watch it two, three times and I’m seeing something different every time, and I made it!”
“True Detective” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
