Show Summary

True Detective is an American anthology crime series created and written by Nic Pizzolatto. The first season starts 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 second season follows three detectives from three different cooperating police departments and a criminal turned businessman as they investigate a series of crimes they believe are connected to the murder of a corrupt politician. The second season stars Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn.

      Hands down one of the bests overall seasons of any show I've ever watched. The acting, the characters, the gloomy/creepy story. It sucks you right in and you can't help but stay hooked all through the eight episodes. It's a shame the story ends after only eight but it never gets dull and comes to a satisfying conclusion. I can't believe anyone could give this show a proper review before watching it all the way through. Though, I was impressed right from the first episode.moreless
    • Great season 2 of True Detective

      Great season 2 of true detective, better then season 1.
    • Season 2 or season blue?

      Seriously? After a brilliant season 1 the producers could only muster up only 1 thing from season 1 that was to get a mind blowing cast. That's it. Rest of it is awful. From story to conclusion. Monotone the whole season. This wasn't true detection this was laziest cop work at finest. Also this wasn't out of the box either, the sympathetic characters must be killed just put viewers in aw. Nobody goes in aw with season that was built on the foundations of crap.moreless

      Very Good Season 2 but In the shadow of season 1. Characters were great but not developed linearly and not as engaging as season's 1. Maybe, more episodes needed for the writer to engage the viewers.

      Plot not great, confusing, and many times disorienting the viewer. On the other hand, hidden treasures, like the story of the two brothers were hidden, and came to light at the last episodes.

      At the end of the day, the great characters, great cinematography and scenes like the death scene of Frank, the very good music and "true detective" atmosphere had won me.

      Waiting for the 3rd season.. More work on the scenarios please...moreless
    • end it

      season 1 first 4 episodes were great, but then it became a conservative apologist in the end. Season 2? I'm not watching. Sometimes it just has to end.
