Introductory sentence to explain that I am going to talk about True Detective plot points now that the second season has recently concluded.
There’s a lot to say in regards to the finale of season 2 of True Detective. Agree, that it was overall way weaker than season 1. Agree, that it was disjointed, filled with weakly-written characters, unmemorable characters that make the viewer go “who the fuck is that?” And agree, way more analogy and veiled commentary over plot.
There’s no sugar-coating it, season 2 of True Detective wasn’t that great. Not in comparison to season 1, with Matthew MacConaughey stealing the show with his broody detective-turned-vigilante, but it just wasn’t that great in general.
