Finally a True Detective, everyone expected.
3 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Black Maps and Motel Rooms was perhaps the most engaging episode of the entire season 2. The penultimate episode was full of suspense and timely action. It is fair to say that the road towards the finale is nicely laid, after recovering from the mediocre start of the season. All the characters are finally coming into the places they were supposed to fill. The investigation finally has a direction and is heading towards an enthralling closure. For the first time during the season, I felt something for Taylor Kitsch's character and this should have been the way right from the beginning. The obscurity surrounding his character, made it dull and equivocal.

Vince Vaughn also had one of his best episodes and Colin Farrell was excellent, as has been the case throughout the season. I think Rachel McAdams's character throws F-bombs just to meet the TV-MA rating, otherwise apart from the "elite party", there hasn't been a lot to match HBO's TV-MA rating. Overall, the season has picked up since the 5th episode and hopefully, a good ending will prolong the idiosyncratic concept i.e; "True Detective", with a few more seasons
