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.

  • The best crime serie

    10
    Really good series to watch. I totally recommend this, you can't stop watching it 10/10.
  • True neo noir Detective show!

    10
    Well constructed, solid scenario accompanied by stellar performances! An exceptionally good first season and looking forward to an equally good if not better second season!
  • Absolutely dark, twisted, compelling and brilliant

    What else can be said about a show so sinister in it's premise, so dark in its story, that's ultimately delivered so brilliantly, other that it's pure genius. This is the Television that viewers want. Suspense, intrigue, characters that are flawed but likable and believable, and that gives you a story with an absolutely amazing beginning, middle and ending.



    I wish all major networks would move away from 22 and 24 episode seasons and move to 8, 11 or 13 episodes like AMC, STARZ, and HBO and Showtime. It allows for much more concise writing, better overall stories, and episodes that impact more.

  • A masterpiece

    10
    Some tv-series are bad, some are good, some are not so bad, some become cult and others are just masterpieces.

    True Detective is a masterpiece, pure and simple. Great Acting, wonderful writing,awesome cast and the all show atmosphere is amazing.

    If someone didn't see this show and it's wondering about it: go and watch it, you will not be disappointed.

    Highly recommended.
  • Maybe the best of the year

    9.0
    I never liked either actor but they're fantastic together in this. Maybe not as "fun" as Fargo but every bit as good or better in its own way. These recent miniseries-style shows are putting contemporary movies to shame - I'm off to Top of the Lake next to see how it stacks up, and hoping our library picks up The Fall.



    I'm mystified though by what a second season of TD - or Fargo for that matter - might look like...moreless

    '80s Rocker Rick Springfield Joins True Detective Season 2

    The HBO once again has fans scratching their heads, but this time the confusion has nothing to do with one of Rust Cohle's rambling existential speeches.
