HBO’s True Detective – By The Numbers

Halfway through HBO’s new hit show, and halfway through the work week, I figured it’d be a good idea and to drop some numbers and quick facts to make sure you, the viewer, are caught up; and you’ll be able to stand out in any type of Sunday Night trivia. I’ve collected the numbers ranging from the number of victims that have been covered so far to the number of cigarettes Matthew McConaughey downs in the first four episodes. Peep the rundown and be aware of these tendencies as the show progresses.
