I liked the season one better. I am going to keep this post as short as possible. First disliking something and then telling others why you disliked it is something I don’t like. That’s why you will find that most of the discussions on movies and TV on this blog are about those which I admired. You will mostly read positive things about them, so they are more like recommendations than reviews. If I like a movie/TV show I had a good experience with it and by sharing that experience I do two things–I create a possibility of making someone else feel similar and also create a note which I might read someday later on and relive the experience a bit.
The season one had a wonderful chemistry between two detectives. Matthew Mcconaughey was new to me but he was amazing and I instantly liked his performance, his character and its bonding with Woody Harrelson’s . The plot was intriguing and twisted and dark but conclusive. The element of mystery was substantial. I liked the theme song of season one.
I liked the theme song of this season too, though it also has nothing to do with the story. Here it’s if you want to listen:
This season had strong star cast but the plot was not as substantial. Oh I forgot to tell you, True Detective’s seasons are not related with each other at all! They were trying to make a watergate scandal but they couldn’t. Some people didn’t like melancholic songs in the bar with a guitar by a lady who looks depressed but I did. I feel this season had its moments but on the whole it failed. The conclusion was dismal and it looked more like I was watching a boring film with so many cliches. The mighty Frank who is untouchable for some mysterious reasons meets his Karma and so does Velcoro ( who by the way was only well developed character!) Some detectives who look compromised work to unravel a mystery and they do only to get caught by it themselves. This season gets 6 points out of 10.
