Storyline

In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they'd left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law. Written by Rich28

Did You Know?

Trivia

The title credits of the entire 2014 season of 'Key and Peele (2012)' directly spoof the Season 1 title credits of True Detective. Also, in every episode before each skit, Key & Peele are seen driving through the desert having philosophical (albeit humorous) conversations, in another direct spoof of the long and frequent scenes of driving and conversations in Season 1 of True Detective.

Goofs

Detective Rust Cohle is seen looking at his watch as it beeps. His watch is a mechanical dive watch without any digital components, and is unable to beep. See more »

Dark, Gritty, excellent
14 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why but I can't enter my how many stars review, so I'll just write it here as 10

From the opening credits, which seemed like a combo of the credits of 'Six Feet Under" and "The Killing" with a little James Bond" look all with this ominous song, to the end I think this is going to be something great. It will not be for everyone, I already have seen reviews of people hating on it for not having action and being slow, well this show like many others is going to be a "Slow Boil" type of show. For those of you who don't know this story arc and actors/characters will not be continuing after this season, i just read that it will be a total of 8 epiodes with a solid conclusion and than will move on to another story in season 2 making it an anthology season series like American Horror Story. I'm really glad another show has decided to do that format and hope that there will be others in the future
