    I created this account to warn anyone else thinking about watching season 2 of True Detective. It's hard to describe how far from grace this series fell from it's incredible start in season 1. Don't let this cast or season 1 deceive you. It's bad.
  • Jun 17, 2022
    Just finished season 1, which was very, very good (that last scene...wow). Only got through half of episode 1, season 2 and just had to skip it altogether - horrible! Hollywood-ized (everyone's good looking), stupid, wooden interactions - nothing like taking a good thing and ruining it. We started season 3 instead and it's a breath of fresh air so far. Back to what works: great casting and acting; gritty, realistic storyline.
  • May 06, 2022
    Straight up, Season 2 isn't as bad as what people say it is. The last 3 episodes make up for whatever it lacked throughout the rest.
  • May 01, 2022
    Not even close to as good as season 1. Casting IMO is 60% of what makes a show work. Instead of building on what worked in season 1 they took a cast typically used for comedies and tried to use them in serious murder situations. Nope.

    Brilliant! Amazing True Detective story as usual.
  • Feb 26, 2022
    The second season of the True Detective series is bad. There is a convoluted story that makes no sense. The direction is poor and the flashbacks make you lose focus. One of the worst series I have ever seen.
  • Feb 09, 2022
    I thought season 2 was pretty good . Great ? No but I'm not one of the sheep that believed season 1 was some unassailable masterpiece. I enjoyed season 1 and I enjoyed season 2. I just look at the 2 seasons as very different and although VV turned in a really good performance some can never completely buy him as the heavy in a drama.

    Badly written story and characters. More remniscent of a soap opera than a HBO quality series.
  • Jan 13, 2022
    In Comparison To The Original Predecessor, There Is Already A Very High Bar Set. As A Stand Alone Piece, The Actors, Story & Story Development Is All Up There Within A Very Good Standing. I Guess Because It All Looks So Familiar, We Have A Better Example To Compare It To, Which Brings This Down A few Pegs.
  • Dec 12, 2021
    2 episodes in and I'm still wondering why I should give a damn about these characters or this story. Once again, everyone's a piece of shit with zero redeemable qualities, and the murder mystery is not even interesting this time around. Pass.
