Series Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson dig deep in HBO's acclaimed closed-end mystery of Louisiana detectives paired to probe a kinky cult murder.

Extras Stars discuss specific scenes; brief chats by writer, director delve "inside the episode"; smart 15-minute featurettes explore making-of, music score (from T-Bone Burnett); two episode commentaries; more.

List price $60 DVD/$80 Blu-ray+digital HD, out today from HBO. (Note: has not been reflecting availability for new Warner-distributed discs such as this one. Expect other outlets to be in stock.)
