See About Killing a Man
27 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Even though I haven't loved this season of True Detective, there are certain parts of the show that I have really enjoyed. Colin Farrell continues to dominate the acting each week and tonight was no different. But even I came around to Vince Vaughn tonight. It was one of the only episodes where his dialogue actually sounded genuine. And although this week once again didn't have the most coherent story, it was one of the more entertaining episodes of the season.

As the detectives moved closer (apparently) to the target, we got a great scene between Farrell and Vaughn, which as of now, didn't have anything to do with the larger killer at hand. This is one of the reasons why I don't think this season has worked. I really find Farrell's situation with his wife and son to be much more interesting than the actual search for the lead murderer. As a show, you cant let one overshadow the other, especially if you are going for an ensemble piece. With that being said, I once again wrote down "too much going on" in my notes. I feel like that's my main complaint about this show each and every week. Maybe it's that I don't care enough about the story, but I find myself asking what the hell is going on every week. But I did find it interesting how Vaughn ended up having a great father moment while Farrell struggled to connect with his son, when all season long it's been the other way around. It was a cool switch of our usual father figures.

I also found the whole Bezzerides looking into Churchman's prostitution ring to be a bit underwhelming, along with Vaughn's Mexican standoff. The episode was building it up like it was a life or death situation. And even though she ended up killing a man, I didn't feel scared for her character or anyone else in the episode. So overall, it was a step up this week, but not as much as I would have liked.
