Show Summary

As part of a review into a 17 year-old ritualistic murder, the detectives that worked the case and apparently solved it are brought in to give statements.  In narratives between split 2012 and 1995, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) narrate their story, reopening unhealed wounds in the process.

    Very slow paced and boring series.
  • Can't wait to see where it goes for season 2

    This is what comes from having one talented writer and one talented director handling every episode. A cohesive, perfect story with a very clear beginning, middle, and end. Fantastic performances by the two leads and it will be hard for anything else to top this. (Though I do think it is unfair for it to be running in the Best Drama category)
  • Great Story-Telling, Scary, Mysterious and Hits all the Emotions

    I wish i hadn't watched this alone, it's rather nightmare inducing, and I'm a fan of a lot of crime shows so I've seen some hinky sociopaths acted out on screen. But this is WHACK!!!



    What is most unique about this show though is, of course, the way the story is told. The piece by piece flashbacks, the deceptions, the personal stories entwined in the case, the suspicions and the unique characters played by both stunning actors. It's dark, it's weird and it's wonderful.



    Not your average cop drama, this crime show will have you wondering what is going on and who dunnit right to the very end. But maybe watch it with a friend....moreless
