    This week, Mina and I Geek Out on the recently concluded first season of HBO’s “True Detective” and the weird cut-up Philippine theater version of 300:Rise of an Empire (and why it’s kind of like The Mighty Ducks). We also discuss what makes a television pilot fail, and if the new tv show “Star-Crossed” is “Roswell” crossed with District Nine, or just “Alien Nation” with abs and less awesomeness.
