In case you haven’t been watching, we need to alert you to the fact that HBO’s True Detective is a great show. But you can’t really be surprised, it is HBO after all. They have some other great shows you may have heard of like The Sopranos or Game of Thrones.
But if you really haven’t been watching, here’s a bit of info about the show:
True Detective is written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga. It centers on two detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened.
In truth, that description doesn’t really do the show justice. It’s way more complicated than that. And awesome on so many levels.
If you have been watching (good for you) you know this Sunday brings a brand new episode, which we have a preview for after the break. Look for True Detective Sunday at 9/8C on HBO.
