True Detective has been something of a phenomenon. Featuring top-notch acting and intense character-driven mysteries, the show quickly gained a following and has seen record high ratings and critical acclaim over the course of its first season. On Sunday March 9, 2014, the tales of Rust Cohle (Matthew Mcconaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) came to an end.
In this podcast, I sit down with Søren to talk about what writer Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Fukunaga got right, what they could have improved upon, and where the series can go from here (sans Fukunaga, McConaughey, and Harrelson) in Season 2. Please note that this podcast covers all of Season 1 of True Detective in depth, and therefore features major spoilers. But as long as that’s alright with you, we invite you to join us as we venture deep into the very bowels of Carcosa itself.
