Matthew McConaughey to Make True Detective Return?

Matthew McConaughey to Make True Detective Return?

  Matthew McConaughey could make a sensational return to Golden Globe and Emmy nominated show True Detective. McConaughey previously played fan favorite philosophical detective Rustin Cohle alongside Woody Harrelson in the first season of the hit HBO series. Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, when asked whether he would be open to reprising his role as Rust Cohle, McConaughey conceded; “Yeah, I would. I miss Rust Cohle man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights”. His characterization is arguably one of the main reasons for True Detective‘s initial success and popularity. From his philosophical musings, sharped-tongued...

Nic Pizzolatto Still Onboard At HBO, But Not Necessarily TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

Nic Pizzolatto Still Onboard At HBO, But Not Necessarily TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3

HBO has just continued a contract with TRUE DETECTIVE’s Nic Pizzolatto that will allow him to work on concepts through 2018. Whether that includes a third season of the anthology series is still unknown. If it does go forward however, don’t expect it in 2016. Keep in mind it would still have to be written from scratch before it ever went to camera and since HBO has not given approval yet they must be holding out for such a script.   However, it bears repeating that Michael Lombardo has already stated that a third run is up to its creator. Lombardo said – “If he wants to do another season, I said the door is open, we’d like to do...

True Detective: What Could Happen in Season Three?

True Detective: What Could Happen in Season Three?

Since the season two finale of True Detective we have had some time for reflection and murmurings of a third season are starting to surface. HBO President Michael Lombardo has said openly that if the show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto, wants to make a third season, he will have the networks backing. Despite the fact that season two failed to captivate its audience in the same way as season one, each episode was bringing in around 12 million viewers and with numbers like that, a repeat performance is undeniably on the cards. Pizzolatto himself hasn’t said much about the prospect of a third season, apart from that he has had a few ideas....

True Detective: A Comparison of Seasons

True Detective: A Comparison of Seasons

  Knowing the second season of True Detective would soon air, I crunched time to be able to watch the first season before the new one dropped. I had heard so much excitement and fervor over it. And I was not disappointed. The first season wove an intricate tale or warring partners, their complicated lives, and a killer boosted by religious idolatry. I became easily obsessed with the phenomenal acting, exquisite cinematography, and fantastic soundtrack. So once I finished it, I began anxiously awaiting the next season. I was pleased with the casting and expecting to be blown out of the water. Oh boy, I was pretty disappointed. In my...

True Detective Season 2 Finale: “Omega Station”

True Detective Season 2 Finale: “Omega Station”

And so it ends. The second (and as far as we know final?) season of True Detective. There were a lot of expectations going in and I’m not sure it was possible to meet any of them. If HBO would have tried to recreate the first season it would have fallen short and felt stale, so they tried something different and got flack for being different. It was a lose/lose situation. Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? The first few episodes of True Detective season 2 were admittedly slow. There was a never ending stream of characters to get to know and it was often hard to follow all of the details. Season 1 was such a simple story, in...

True Detective Finale Extended to 90 Minutes

True Detective Finale Extended to 90 Minutes

The second season of HBO’s True Detective may have been a victim of high expectations. The first season was an overnight success breaking several “first season of a series” records for the Home Box Office. How could season 2 possibly live up to that? Well, in many critics opinions it hasn’t but HBO’s president cautions us to wait for the finale before passing final judgement: “I think you need to watch the entirety of it…I think the season’s ending is as satisfying as any series we’ve done.” But here’s the kicker: True Detective season 2’s finale will run 87 minutes! We could...

True Detective Black “Maps and Motel Rooms”

True Detective Black “Maps and Motel Rooms”

We have four desperate people, trying to tread water in the treacherous murk that is Vinci. Nobody is trustworthy. Those that are tend to meet a grisly end. Those who have been pushed to their limits, seek revenge. Those who have been falsely accused are trying to do the right thing and set the record straight. While Ani is fighting the effects of the drug induced haze she was put through at the sleazy sex party, Ray watches over her in a remote motel room. They still have to figure out about what to do with their potential witness, Vera, who is hostile and ungrateful for being pulled from that party. It’s put her in a precarious...

True Detective: “Church In Ruins”

True Detective: “Church In Ruins”

This season of True Detective has been unjustly maligned by many critics who have decided to ignore great performances, and the nearly identical tone to the beloved first season. Episodes like “Church In Ruins” go far in proving these criticisms as moot points. This episode is full of tension from the opening scene to the finale. “I have a sense of justice” Starting from where we left last episode we immediately go full tilt into the confrontation between Velcoro and Semyon. This scene is full of tension so rich it would make Alfred Hitchcock squeal in glee. The fact that both characters are seemingly having a normal...
