True Detective (season 2)

… With a principal cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor KitschKelly Reilly, and Vince Vaughn, the season comprises eight episodes and concluded its initial airing on August 9, 2015.

The season’s story takes place in California and follows the interweaving stories of officers from three cooperating police departments …

On paper, with that cast, this series must have looked fantastic.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the season has a rating of 65%, based on 72 reviews …

Hank Stuever of The Washington Post gave it a generally positive review, praising the performances, and wrote, “There is something still lugubrious and overwrought about True Detective, but there’s also a mesmerizing style to it — it’s imperfect, but well made.”[ …

Many who loved season 1 were critical of season 2. Too dark. Too confusing. A “self-serious mess“.

It tried too hard to be edgy, cool.

It needed some humour. Even one good character.

Still, I recommend True Detective (season 2). And look forward to season 3.
