Critic reviews for Omega Station

This episode, even more than the rest of the season, felt unhealthily obsessed with paternal angst, and the intensely emotional, frequently toxic relationship between fathers and sons.

There was tension and surprise and excitement.

It was the final montage that bothered me most of all.

The true lesson of True Detective's 2.0 is that the average viewer can tolerate only so much unremitting darkness before they start craving the light.

After spending seven weeks weighing each episode on this scale - murder mystery vs. character study - it turns out True Detective Season 2 was neither.

I pronounce the detective story -- of a show, let me remind you, called True Detective -- a complete bust.
