Audience Reviews for True Detective: Season 1

  • Jan 13, 2022
    Beautifully Done. Acting Is Enhanced Further By A Well-Paced Story That Is Nicely Filmed & Has A Constant Eerie Vibe That Keeps You Guessing.
  • Jan 02, 2022
    The closest to ever being a detective…. Ever!
  • Dec 13, 2021
    No matter how good a show is, it can't get to 100%. Especially, when it's based on Reality.
  • Dec 12, 2021
    Good not great. After awhile, following these flawed detectives with NO redeemable qualities got tiresome, but the mystery was addictive and the storytelling structure was unique enough to keep me watching.
  • Dec 05, 2021
    Loved it. Great cast. Solid story.
  • Dec 03, 2021

    Perfection. It doesn't get any better than this. From the cinematography, the acting, the story line. It's perfect. A must see. New respect for both actors after seeing this. Best series ever made to date.
  • Nov 19, 2021
    This is the best season of any television show ever produced.
  • Nov 04, 2021
    Perfection. Up there with The Wire. Incredible acting, directing, score. All TV perfection.
  • Oct 12, 2021
    Easily some of the best television I've ever seen. I've watched Season 1 several times over. It's a fallback of mine. The production is fantastic, the characters unforgettable, the plot so well constructed you can't disengage. A modern, southern noir with its own dark flavor. I envy people who have yet to watch it!
