Critic reviews for Who Goes There
True Detective was where TV became the movies. It showed that anything you could do on a big screen could be ported over to a small one.
"Who Goes There" goes off the rails a bit tonight, devolving into a totally different kind of show -- not that this is entirely a bad thing. There's this dark, frenetic energy to the back half.
We get more information about how crazy Cohle really is, but the episode feels padded and off course.
True Detective amped itself up for another hour of mesmerizing and heart-pounding television, the likes of which really haven't been since - dare I say it? Breaking Bad.
"Who Goes There" is an impressive visual example of what's been a gorgeous series to date.
