“True Detective” wraps up a compelling yet divisive second season

10 August 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

After the almost masterpiece that was the first season of True Detective, it seemed almost inevitable that this new season would be met with a more mixed response. That being said, I’m sure creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto wasn’t expecting Season Two to be nearly as divisive as it was. Having just wrapped up last night, I certainly enjoyed it quite a bit, but like most also recognize that Season One was a bit of an anomaly with how amazing it was. You were never going to beat Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson at the top of their game, backed by Cary Fukunaga directing all six episodes like one long movie. Still, for many this second time around left a lot to be desired. Not me though… Much like last season, True Detective centered around a murder mystery but really was more concerned with the personal and professional »

True Detective, Ep. 2.08, “Omega Station”: One for the road

9 August 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective, Season 2, Episode 8, “Omega Station”

Written by Nic Pizzolatto

Directed by John Crowley

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

In the end, so many of the issues emblematic of the season at large caught up to each other to form one long, rough, near-painful season finale of True Detective.  The disconnect between each of the four main characters turns into a huge distraction as the finale moves along, whereas previously in the season it was more of an annoying distraction. Ani’s reaction to the news of Paul’s death, so shocked she acts as if someone just punched her in the gut, comes off as the most fake character moment among many similar scenes. She and Ray barely knew Paul and definitely didn’t care enough to start a dialogue about his personal life at any time. The fact that his death would warrant any reaction beyond, »

"True Detective" Recap & Review: Season 2, Episode 5 "Other Lives"

19 July 2015 10:18 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Time jumps can be a tricky thing. The lives of the characters carry on, but the audience has no immediate frame of reference for how things have changed. Therefore, to get us caught up, conversations happen in circles with people saying a bit too plainly how exactly something in the past is affecting them in this particular moment. "True Detective" moves roughly two months (66 days to be exact) after the massive shootout that concluded the previous episode and certainly a lot has changed. As was to be expected, the public tragedy and ultimate failure of the Caspere task force in the overwhelming loss of life that came to pass at the end of the last episode, has caused the case to be declared closed. With no survivors there is no one left to question so it is easy to pin the blame on one of the dead bad guys. Also, »

‘True Detective’ Recap: ’Other Lives’

19 July 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With only a few more episodes to go in “True Detective” season two, here’s where “Other Lives” — which fast forwards through time after last week’s big shootout — leaves the four main characters:

Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell)

The man who raped Ray’s ex-wife, Alicia (Abigail Spencer), wasn’t actually killed like Ray believed. State Attorney Davis (Michael Hyatt) informs Ray they picked up someone whose DNA can be linked to the assault on Alicia (and on several others), and now he’s in jail.

The news disturbs Alicia, not because she’s upset that Ray didn’t avenge her attack, but because he told her he did, and in the process destroyed their relationship. The news also sends Ray straight to Frank (Vince Vaughn), looking for answers about who he really killed, and packing heat.

Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch)

He informs his trailer-trash mother (Lolita Davidovich) that he’s marrying his pregnant girlfriend. »

Scary Things Are Still Coming "From The Dark"

7 July 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It’s a familiar story: young people head into the wilderness for a peaceful getaway or a fun-filled adventure, but encounter horror instead, whether it be otherworldly creatures or an all-too-human killer. From there, it is a battle for survival--and all too often the heroes, with all their human follies and foibles, come up short in the face of evil. It’s a basic formula for fright that has been remixed by filmmakers time and time again, with varying results: recent standouts include Eden Lake (2008), which forced Michael Fassbender and Kelly Reilly to endure psychological and physical torture at the hands of some terrifying teenagers, and The Descent (2005), which stranded a team of spelunkers deep underground in cave populated by bloodthirsty creatures of the same mold as Gollum--if he had rabies. From the Dark does not quite reach those films' heights, but it is solidly scary, more so than many »

Everything We Know About 'True Detective' Season 2 So Far

6 July 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In an effort to get all my ducks in a row for our "True Detective" podcast I decided to sit down and rewatch the first three episodes, taking notes on each character, situation and the fictional city of Vinci. Before getting to the dirty details, the nuts and bolts of the series begin with the murder of Vinci City Manager Benjamin Caspere, a murder that brings together Detective Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams), Detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), Officer Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) and career criminal attempting to go legit, Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn). Ray Velcoro is a drunk, troubled detective with an ex-wife looking for sole custody of their child and the misfortune of working the Caspere murder case while also having to answer to the corrupt Vinci police department, mayor and Frank Semyon. Semyon finds himself in a financial fix as a result of Caspere's death as Caspere was »

"True Detective" Recap & Review: Season 2, Episode 3, "Maybe Tomorrow"

5 July 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Riot shells... "True Detective" wastes no time resolving the cliffhanger set up at the end of its last episode. That decision, as well as the decision to keep Det. Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) alive at all, set up "Maybe Tomorrow" as a worthy follow up to "Night Finds You" and keeps this season's momentum firing. The opening dream sequence falls squarely in the disorienting category. Velcoro has visions of his father and this scene assuaged any fears I may have had when faced with the possibility of exactly the type of "cop out" we ended up getting. The character of Ray Velcoro and Colin Farrell's performance are an integral part of what gives this story it's vitality and spark. In a television landscape where shows like "Game of Thrones" kill off a main character seemingly every week, the audience could be considered numb to a twist dependent on a major casualty. »

True Detective, Ep. 2.03, “Maybe Tomorrow”: Driving, talking, very little police work

5 July 2015 9:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective, Season 2, Episode 3, “Maybe Tomorrow

Written by Nic Pizzolatto

Directed by Janus Metz Pedersen

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

By far the worst thing about this week’s third episode of True Detective’s second season is that it feels mostly inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Not that it is entirely clear at this point what “the grand scheme of things” even is, but there is a massive difference between world-building and complete pointlessness. After Ray’s survival quickly resolves last week’s cliffhanger, the rest of the episode consists mainly of the team pursuing leads in various places around Vinci and Los Angeles. It may be representative of good police work, not to mention how readily it presents opportunities for the leads to interact with each other at length on car rides and strolls, but it doesn’t make for very compelling television.

True Detective, Ep. 2.02, “Night Finds You”: Pick up the pieces and go home

28 June 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

True Detective, Season 2, Episode 2, “Night Finds You”

Written by Nic Pizzolatto

Directed by Justin Lin

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

Unlike True Detective‘s premiere, the second episode of the season, while still overbearingly morose, at least manages to make some headway, with both more realistic character development and interesting details in the investigation of Ben Caspere’s murder. Much of the hour still comes off as a parody of classic noir, especially the sections involving Vince Vaughan, but as more time is spent with these characters there is at the very least a feeling that the show has a purposeful direction for the season, rather than just being content to wallow in sadness and despair. This sense is helped significantly by the episode’s final scene, which is an effective cliffhanger whether the character of Ray Velcoro elicits strong personal feelings positively, negatively, or not at all. »

"True Detective" Recap & Review: Season 2, Episode 2, "Night Finds You"

28 June 2015 9:06 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"True Detective" ups the ante in every way and settles into its comfortable procedural grove this week. Its season premiere may require more than one viewing to truly appreciate (having watched the episode again, I can say it does improve), but "Night Finds You" is full of all the elements that made the first season such a standout. The episode opens with Semyon (Vince Vaughn) concerned for his legacy. Subtlety is nowhere to be found as quick flashes of Semyon's large empty house are intercut with him lamenting the fact he and his wife Jordan (Kelly Reilly) do not have children. When Frank recalls his five days in the dark as a child and his terror at being locked in the basement, his desire for some sort of lasting contribution becomes clear. Semyon straddles the line between legitimacy and his gangster past for most of this hour and he seems »

‘True Detective 2×01: The Western Book of the Dead’ Review

22 June 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“I welcome judgment.”

Cool, Ray. You asked for it.

True Detective‘s first season seemed to have the zeitgeist firmly in its swamp-mummy claws, an unexpected pulp hit hitched to live-wire performances by Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, filmed by the thunderous Cary Fukunaga, and veined through with little rills and creeks of cosmic horror. It wasn’t perfect. Pizzolatto’s bluster about “real men” and the show’s eye-rolling moments of realization and poorly fleshed-out women could and did drag it down at times. It was, however, a damn sight better than ‘The Western Book of the Dead,’ season 2′s joyless flop of a premiere.

Fukunaga’s replacement, Justin Lin, doesn’t have his predecessor’s eye. There are a couple shots worth looking at it. Ray Velcoro(Colin Farrell) pulling on a ski mask and raising a finger to his lips as a warning delivered right to the »

True Detective, Ep. 2.01: “The Western Book of the Dead”: Oh, why you look so sad?

True Detective, Season 2, Episode 1, “The Western Book of the Dead

Written by Nic Pizzolatto

Directed by Justin Lin

Airs Sundays at 9pm (Et) on HBO

Near the midway point of the first season of True DetectiveNic Pizzolatto became the de facto face of the show. A writer who clearly wanted to take most of the credit for one of the most popular shows on television, Pizzolatto gave off an air of entitlement throughout that season’s last few episodes and then continued to give interviews in which comparing himself to the second coming would have been one of the humbler comments included, deflecting praise to the rest of the team responsible for the gorgeous establishing shots or murky Southern murder mysteries. These details aren’t laid out to place all the blame on Pizzolatto for the average opening episode of True Detective season two, but it does seem as »

The Podcast You Deserve: S2 E1 "The Western Book of the Dead"

21 June 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Welcome to the premiere episode of our "True Detective" podcast, "The Podcast You Deserve", featuring myself, Brad Brevet, and Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist as we will be recapping and reviewing each episode of this new season of HBO's "True Detective". This inaugural episode is a little rough around the edges, but that sort of matches this first episode of this new season as several new characters are introduced and a whole new story begins to unfold. Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6, Star Trek 3) directs this episode as we meet our cast of characters including Colin Farrell as detective Ray Velcoro, Vince Vaughn as gangster turned legit entrepreneur Frank Semyon, Rachel McAdams as detective Ani Bezzerides, Taylor Kitsch as patrol officer Paul Woodrugh as our primary leads. Kelly Reilly seems she'll also be playing a significant role as Frank's wife, Jordan Semyon, a former D-list actress with her own set of ambitions. »

True Detective Premiere Recap: I Was Not Caught, Though Many Tried

21 June 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Remember when being a TV cop meant being a cool badass instead of being an emotionally frayed burlap sack of misery?

It’s not hard to imagine Officer Frank Poncherello shaking his head in shame at True Detective‘s men and women of California law enforcement, so woeful are their backstories, so apparent is their sadness. The Season 2 opener does little more than introduce these featured cops and tee up the crime that kicks off their shared narrative — and that’s compelling enough to make you want to come back next week — but oof, is it tough to witness so much unhappiness. »

Review: Has 'True Detective' fallen victim to the sophomore slump?

17 June 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Midway through watching the very first episode of "True Detective" season 1, Matthew McConaughey's Rust Cohle delivered what was already his fourth or fifth monologue about the pointlessness of existence, and I jotted down the following note: Do I want to watch many hours of McConaughey saying this (stuff)? As it turns out, I did. McConaughey was just that mesmerizing, Woody Harrelson wasn't far behind, and the direction of Cary Joji Fukunaga was so stunning that I was able to look past Cohle's lectures, the thinness of the female characters (or, really, anyone who wasn't Rust or Marty Hart), and the serial killer tropes and other recycled devices and even lines of dialogue peppered throughout Nic Pizzolatto's scripts. It had its flaws, but it was still one of the best things on TV a year ago. Pizzolatto's writing was memorable, mixing in hard-boiled detective cliches with Cohle's nihilist philosophy, »

TV Review: ‘True Detective,’ Season 2

12 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Those expecting anything approaching the magic conjured by the original Matthew McConaughey-Woody Harrelson pairing should immediately temper their enthusiasm for “True Detective’s” second season. Impeccably cast around its marquee stars, the new plot possesses the requisite noir-ish qualities, but feels like a by-the-numbers potboiler, punctuated by swooping aerial shots of L.A. courtesy of new director Justin Lin, whose intense close-ups bring to mind a Sergio Leone western. Although generally watchable, the inspiration that turned the first into an obsession for many seems to have drained out of writer Nic Pizzolatto’s prose, at least three hours into this eight-episode run.

Somehow, the first installment managed to take TV’s most venerable genre and put a fresh coat of paint on it, thanks to the intoxicating mix of McConaughey’s unorthodox, philosophizing cop, its grisly crime and the time-bending narrative. Here, Pizzolatto more straightforwardly plows ahead, featuring »
