As I mentioned on Twitter, I watched episode 1 of True Detective a couple of days ago. After one episode, I thought it was as good as “Breaking Bad”. Maybe better.
Here is an excellent article (from the NY times, natch) about the end of Season 1.
More on the season finale here at Uproxx:
“…if I were to rank the eight episodes from the first season of True Detective from best to worst, episode eight would most certainly place last. But the show captivated me in ways that few ever have, and for that it stands as one of my all-time favorite seasons of television, right there with the third seasons of Breaking Bad and The Wire. The destination may have disappointed me a bit, but the journey was one hell of a ride. I’m going to miss the hell out of Hart and Cohle.”
