    What has gone wrong with season 2 of True Detective?

    Being unable to replace actors of the calibre of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey? A mystery somewhat lacking in the pervasive "yellow king/carcosa" mythos? The (rumoured) fallout between showrunner Nic Pizzolatto and star director of all of season one, Cary Fukunaga.

    • I think we should not completely pass judgement on the season until it has finished, but I agree that it does not have the power that the first season had. I think it is a mixture of too much exposition of characters, rather than actual real plot development. Boring cinematography. Granted the shoot out scene was sort of impressive, but was really just another detour towards a dead end for the plot to take, rather than the bridge that was the long shot of Season 1. All in all, I think this is a great idea, but should wait until the season is finished to see if it can redeem itself. – Matthew Sims 5 years ago

    • I have only watched the first couple of episodes, but to me it seems that season 2 is lacking in its focus compared to season one. Also it seems that the first season reached such a high appeal that to do it all again seems nearly impossible, comparisons to the first season are unavoidable and as such makes it much harder for the season to stand on its own. – Tyler McPherson 5 years ago

    for all of cersei’s sins (and there are many) the length and degrading aspect of the walk of shame softened my attitude towards her a little. after all, isn’t it true a lot of her questionable deeds HAVE been done with the safety and well-being of her children in mind.

    the difference i see is v’s anarchy is hoping to accomplish something. the joker is by his own admission a dog chasing something he wouldn’t know what to do with if he found it. he is by definition a rabid dog who wants to watch the world burn.

    i’m sad to say that miller should just hang it up. some of his work will rightly be treasured but that… won’t happen with anything new he creates.

    the idea of balance consists of light and dark or good and evil. star wars sure has a lot of botg. what i find interesting is the characters’ struggle to do what’s ‘right’ even if it’s for the ‘wrong’ reasons,
