True Detective is a drama series about 2 Louisiana State Police homicide detectives (played by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson) who hunt for a serial killer across 17 years. (From what I have heard, the next season they will be following 2 different detectives).
HBO has done it again… (Meaning, they really don’t make a bad series)
So far everything about the show is near-perfect. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are playing characters who are incredibly complex and human, and they are doing amazing jobs at their performances. That praise is extended to the whole cast.
I cannot get over how believable everything feels. The case is complex, deep, dark, and mysterious. By far the best part of the show are the moments outside of the case that help make these characters feel like real people. The dialog here is amazing. I truly believe that these are things that real people would say. The whole thing is just amazing and excellently shot. All I can say now is that if you are not watching it I highly recommend that you start.
