A Masterclass in Character Development
4 February 2019 | by pabstcanrocketshipSee all my reviews

This season of True Detective has some of the most deft character development I've ever seen on TV. It's already on par with season one in this regard and if it can maintain its steam it's poised to overtake. The three leads in this episode, Amelia Wayne and Roland deliver the sort of subtle, grown-up acting that's just a pleasure to watch.

Now, I don't think anything in this show will ever beat the plot of season 1, and I'm ok with that. But as of this episode, season 3 has proved itself to be masterful at building real, flawed people about whom you can't help but feel deeply ambivalent - in that good kind of way that makes dramatic tv so engaging. I cant wait to find out more about the big secret deed alluded to in that final scene!





Post Script - special mention needs to go to the makeup wizards on this show. They have reached utterly new heights of believability with their aging techniques. I have never seen a more convincing wrinkly old man neck in all my life lol.
