Storyline

The detectives continue their search for Reggie Ledoux but an opportunity arises when Hart learns that Ledoux is cooking meth for a drug-dealing motorcycle gang known as the Iron Crusaders. Cohle knows them well having had dealings with the gang during the four years he worked as an undercover narcotics officer. He decides that the only way to move the case forward is to take two weeks of personal time - citing a dying father as the reason - and unofficially go undercover. He soon hooks up with his old contacts in the Iron Crusaders but it's clear that regaining their trust isn't going to be easy. At home meanwhile, Hart runs into major problems after his wife Maggie learns of his affair with Lisa. In the present day, the detectives interviewing Cohle and Hart can't quite understand why, having found a major lead in the case, Cohle would suddenly take two weeks leave. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Rustin Cohle and Ginger and his gang are leaving to attack the stash house, right after Cohle has agreed to help. The closet door opens and we see from Tiger's POV, Ginger and his two associates dressed as cops, and Cohle dressed in his SOB leather jacket and jeans. The shot reverses and cuts to their POV and we see Tiger tied up, laying on the floor looking at them. The shot reverses again back to Tiger's POV and we see Cohle walk into the closet and reach for him. Cohle is still wearing leather jacket and jeans.

Cut to a shot from behind the person grabbing Tiger, and we see this person is wearing dark pants, belt and dress blue shirt tucked into the pants, not jeans and a leather jacket. It is obviously one of the actors dressed as a cop, not Cohle. See more »

Quotes

Detective Martin Hart: Fuuuck! Hell of a bedside manner you've got, Rust.
Detective Rust Cohle: Ahh, you know, being stupid is different than going in sick, and this is a bar, not a fuckin' bedside.

True Detective absolutely shines as the currently brightest star in the already glowing television sky. An episode that will make your jaw drop.
13 February 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Episode four officially opens up the second act of the three act first season with most likely one of the most astonishing pieces of television ever. Not only is the episode inexplicably well written and acted, shot and composed, but it is gripping and enthralling on the highest level imaginable. I try to keep these reviews absolutely spoiler free and that's for a reason. You will be at the edge of the seat and that should not be spoiled for anyone.

It's nice to see that Harrelson's and Monaghan's character get some real development in this episode. We see some great development between the two detectives, as usual we learn more about Mcconaughey's dark mysterious and brutal past, which catches up to him in this episode. It goes without saying that the acting is without a doubt superb, but even minor characters like Brad Carter's character or Alexandra Daddario's are portrayed beautifully with a lot of passion from the actors. You can see that there is a lot of love and dedication involved in making this show.

It closes with one of the best tracking shots in cinema history, that will without a doubt go down in history. It is absolutely jaw dropping and the complexity of the shot is incredible. Yet it's not confusing or misleading, at every single second of these six minutes everything is clear. The haunting soundtrack that slowly buzzes in the background, the helicopter sounds, distant gun shots and screaming, make this shot just unbelievable, it's just too good to be true. There is a complete immersion that this shot creates, for these six minutes you're not sitting in your chair watching a show, you're right there with Det. Cohle. And that is the definition of cinema, it is supposed to let you forget your life, to dream for a certain amount of time, just enjoy it.

I can not praise this show enough, if the other 4 episodes are only slightly as good as this one, then True Detectives first season will turn into a masterpiece. The six minute tracking shot definitely already is one.

11/10
