HBO’s True Detective First Season Series at Best Buy

Admittedly, I used to not be much of a TV show person. My disdain for TV shows has dramatically faded over the years, though. I mostly blame Netflix for this once they started dramatically dwindling down their movie line-up in instant play, and started replacing them with an endless count of TV shows and movies that no one cares to watch. Even though I still consider myself more of a movie person, I have somewhat of a long list of favorite TV shows now.

After a long, sometimes hectic week at work; my husband and I love to relax and unwind by staying in and catching up with some of our favorite TV shows. Even though neither one of us are really into crime dramas, such as CSI or Law & Order, we do watch the Discovery ID shows from time to time (until one of us gets slightly paranoid, considering these are genuine cases). However, our curiosities are piqued by the fictional crime drama, True Detective. To top off, the main stars of the show are played by two naturally talented and well diversified actors: Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. In the plot, it follows Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, two detectives, who are entangled in the hunt for the most gruesome serial killer in history in Louisiana.

Since my husband has a strong love for TV shows (and music), buying him a gift on Father’s Day will be effortlessly easy. One of my usual haunts is Best Buy, because they always seem to have the perfect gift. The first season of True Detective releases on June 10th – talk about perfect timing! Between June 8th – 14th, Best Buy will be having a HBO All on Sale in-store and online. You can shop and save on other TV show series from HBO, such as Game of Thrones, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Eastbound and Down. Great shows beat plaid ties anytime!
