Goofs

When Tom Purcell is working on his car in his driveway he is listening to music as his children leave for the playground. When he realizes they have not returned after dark, a baseball game can be heard on the radio. Given that it is November 7, 1980 and the World Series ended October 21st, there would not have been an MLB game available for broadcast. See more »

For all those that say season 3 is a season 1 wannabe , are ridiculous! Of course it's gonna be like season 1 ( dark, troubled characters) that's the theme of True Detective.. If it was anything other it would just be another cop show and not under the True Detective umbrella.
