There's only one season of true detective
7 July 2015 | by normandoraisSee all my reviews

I came to the conclusion that there are actually only one season of true detective. It must have been a mistake along the way that the title ended up on the wrong series. Dialogues are to long and meaningless, the continuity of the events doesn't flow well and the countless amount of clichés would suit a comedy better. Oh! I forgot, the casting, I think they should have taken more time to consider a less star studded selection, maybe young actors and actresses that have something to prove would have added a touch of unexpectedness and roughness that are sadly missing in season 2. The soundtrack however is not bad, definitely not what season one had to offer but pleasant enough. So, keep the series going but change the title. Near detective maybe.
