A True Detective Community
Sunday 9:00 PM on HBO

I was browsing stuff to put together Another Big Bundle of Video Goodies and I kept coming across True Detective videos... a lot of them.

So many that it just made more sense to give them a Big Bundle of their own.
And where better to start than with the various title sequences that have popped up.

Here is the original, so you can compare:
(via HBO)


And here are some of the alternate versions that have popped up:
(via Bellman)


The Twin Peaks version:
(via Blunt Objects Studio)


The Law & Order version:
(via PoppedCulture)


The Cat version:
(via AKN Alt)


And if the Olsen Twins were cast in season 2:
(via Complex)


Speaking of season 2, Jimmy Kimmel threw hat in the ring:



He also put together this True Detective/Looney Tunes mash up
(via Jimmy Kimmel Live)


In a similar vein, there are a couple of True Detective clips with laugh tracks:


(via TOMBZ2012)


Before moving on to another group of videos, here is an alternate ending to episode 5:
(via tutpsu)


The next group of videos that have been popping up concern the tape that Rust showed Marty - I am not going to show the original.

We'll start with my favorite:
(via DecentFilmz)


And now some of the other versions:
(via Double Prizes)


(via PelicanJack)


(via Conor Lastowka)


Moving on from those, here is the buddy cop/ Tango & Cash ending:
(via Danger Guerrero)


And finally here is a sizzle reel mixed to the song "The Angry River" by The Hat ft. Father John Misty & S.I. Istwa:

What the guys from the soup did was hilarious, but what happened to Kimmel and Rogen? As if they never had any talent...
They should have included the Olsons. lol j/k I have nightmares because of their faces.
Mothra forever!!!
(I liked the alternate intros more than the original - all of them)

Of course I have nerve;-)

In a contest of "suckiness" they would be awesome (most awesome crappy clip). I have to admit to only watching a few seconds of the nauseating olsen clip before stopping it so I wouldn't puke but maybe it got better (doubt it).

They were cute kids but what's next~clips of Ms. Piggy and Kermit, Ernie and Bert, Cheech and Chong as the stars of season 2 TD? Ok, they were all funny in their own way but I'm worried that the next seasons choices won't live up to the performances from season 1. I can't believe I'm already fretting over this.

THE OLSENS ARE A BEAUTIFUL GIFT TO THE WORLD AND DO NOT SUCK!
THEY ARE TALENTED, AND CREATIVE AND TWINS!!
TWINS!!!
You are just jealous because you are not a twin

really, when shouting in all caps, it would help if you underlined the important words like "Olsens" and "suck"

lol, they don't suck? Then how do they keep getting work;-) What? you say talent. LOL, talent at sucking!

Since they are twins they are twice as sucky! or due to their twin "powers" they are exponentially more sucky.
It takes two of them to equal one non-twin sucky person.

to those who don't understand my sense of humor, I really don't care about the Olsens (except that they SUCK~lol).

Thanks Grumpy! Loved the Twin Peaks opening, ite evne had the 4^3 format. It fits so well! You even had the horror version with the Olsen twins. I agree with you on the Red Wedding one, it combined the best tv has given us over the last year,

Wouldn't it equally parts horrifying and fascinating if the Olsen twins thing comes true!

The one with GoT wedding cracked me up XDD

Also the credits Law&Order style were surprisingly nice.

The Magic Mike version came with a blurb "What was Cohle doing in Alaska all those years? A man's gotta make a living. A man's gotta follow his dreams."

Nicely done. I was sadly underwhelmed by the Kimmel / Rogen clip, but I think it's mostly because Kimmel mistakenly thought he could pull off a southern accent.
