True Detective came to an end in the US last night, with fans taking to Twitter to gush over the bittersweet moment, of what was a celebrated finale of an all too short series.
Created by Nic Pozzolatto, the eight-part series stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson and tells the story of a murder investigation spanning 17 years.
With just eight episodes and confirmation that Matthew at least won't be back for a second run, fans have turned the HBO series into a mega hit with talk of Emmys and Golden Globes for the stars next awards season.
Fans agree that Oscar winner Matt deserves an accolade for playing Rust in the series with one tweeter declaring: "True Detective was fantastic. McConaughey has more awards coming his way #AlrightAlrightAlright".
"True Detective needs to win every television award out there, and then we should make up a few extra ones, so it can win those too", another added.
Others heaped praise on the show despite it's short running time: "True Detective finale does not remotely disappoint. Best 8-episode arc of anything I can remember".
Some tweeters weren't so sure though, with one left pondering why the finale left them unsatisifed: "Thought True Detective's ending was fine when I saw it. More I think about it, the more disappointed I get".
"Kind of underwhelmed by the true detective finale but i still liked it BUT NOW IT'S OVER AND I'M GONNA MISS IT SO MUCH", another posted.
Fans away from the US though just pleaded with Stateside viewers to lay off the spoilers: "If you spoil TRue Detective for me, I will come to your house and hit you over the head with a frying pan!!!" one angry fan warned. [lmaoooo]
Some fans of the HBO smash were left frustrated when the finale crashed their online streaming service.
The failure of HBO GO to keep up with the unprecedented demand for the concluding part of the drama left viewers on the East Coast with just a blank screen. The service's official Twitter account posted: "Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we've been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon."
The show has been a smash hit for the network in recent weeks, winning 2.33 million viewers for its premiere on January 12 and going on to float between the 1.9 and 2.6 million marks since.
The power of the McConaissance can no longer be denied!!! Praise ha!
