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...

True Detective: “Other Lives”

True Detective: “Other Lives”

After last week’s explosive episode, True Detective finally felt like it had hit the ground running—particularly after having spent half the season on character development and veiled clues. Ray, Ani, and Paul finally had a breakthrough in the investigation, leading to the pulse-pounding raid and shootout with Ledo Amarilla and his men. However, the dust didn’t settle quite as expected. Rather than picking up where it left off, “Other Lives” continues exactly 66 days after what has now been deemed “The Vinci Massacre.” Caspere’s murder case has been officially closed since the man believed to be responsible, Amarilla, is now...

True Detective: “Down Will Come”

True Detective: “Down Will Come”

For everyone who decided that this season’s True Detective was boring and lacked the substance of the last season, you are probably kicking yourselves right now because episode four had my jaw to the floor and my eyes streaming because I was afraid if I blinked, I would miss something. There are two moments in particular that stood out for me, one is pretty obvious but we’ll get to that, first I want to talk about Ani Bezzerides. Much like the first season, this season is dominated by a male cast. The women in season one were usually victims, journalists or sexual partners of the protagonists and season two is no different, all with the...

True Detective: “Maybe Tomorrow”

True Detective: “Maybe Tomorrow”

Not only was last night’s episode of True Detective a massive change of pace but it was a bit of precursor for how we, as an audience, are going to be played for the rest of the season. The question on a lot of people’s lips following episode three of this incredibly sprawling narrative piece is “who is the true detective?” We have three flawed detectives in play, each of them with their own personal demons and one of whom is severely compromised by past misgivings landing him in trouble. Each one is out to solve the crime at hand while simultaneously resolving matters in their personal lives that are the direct result of flaws in...

True Detective: “Night Finds Us”

True Detective: “Night Finds Us”

Holy shit. Last night’s True Detective was a shocker right?! Who saw that one coming? It’s gone all Game of Thrones on us and potentially killed off one of the main characters in episode two, which serves as a not-so-friendly reminder that this show can get incredibly dark and twisted at the flip of a switch. No one is safe, everyone has a secret and the city is an unforgiving pit of despair. The majority of the episode played out like any other, building character stories, opening doors, asking questions and widening the vice. The three detectives come together to hear the autopsy report for Ben Caspere, the man found dead at the end...
