It is always exciting when film stars are involved in TV projects but I have to admit that when I heard that Matthew McConaughey was the star of the show, I was a bit concerned. You see, I had not yet watched Dallas Buyers Club and I had the same opinion as the rest of the planet regarding McConaughey’s acting skills. But then (alright alright, alright!) it happened. He turned his whole career around with this film, this TV show and of course his Wolf of Wall Street cameo role.
The show is pretty much based on the McConaughey’s monologues about life, space, philosophy – you name it - and this might become the reason why you love or hate this show. For me, it was indeed tiring at some points, but the good thing is that there was balance that came with Harrelson’s character’s reactions. Lines such as “Let’s make the car a place of silent reflection from now on, ok?” really enforced the partners’ chemistry and dynamics.
