true_detective_boozePeople drink a lot on this show, in case you hadn’t noticed.

The second season of “True Detective” looks very different from season one. Rust Cohle’s philosophizing has been usurped by Colin Ferrell’s prominent mustache, while sprawling tracking shots of the Louisiana bayou have been replaced by sprawling tracking shots of California highways. But one thing season two does share with the first season is a whole lot of boozing. In fact, aside from all that (true!) detective work, all anyone on this show seems to do is drink — and in the twisted world Nic Pizzolatto has envisioned for his protagonists (you know, “the world they deserve”) — we bet they’re going to need every ounce of liquid courage they can get.

Here’s a list of every time one of the central characters (or characters we think could become central) takes a drink. We’ll update it each week. Stay tuned — it’s sort of like a fun drinking game, only the characters get drunk, not you!
