True Detective 2

The first True Detective was southern gothic 101, perfect shit, amazing acting, brilliantly shot, great tension. The second season had big shoes to fill, and while it was not as good as the first, it was still a great season. Colin Farrell stole the show on this, his character had a great heart but his temper fucked him over, the shit with his son was almost heartbreaking. Vince Vaughn seemed almost like Vincent D'Onofrio on Daredevil, but unlike D'Onofrio he did not receive raving reviews. To that i say bs, Vaughn was solid this season, i hope he gets more serious roles again, underrated actor. Taylor Kitsch is usually rather wooden, here he showed better chops than he usually has, plus he was the most human. Rachel McAdams does a 1 2 punch with this & Southpaw, was super sexy aswell. The plot was not as tight as the first but it had almost a Twin Peaks esque vibe with the surreal shit going on, almost like a bad trip. This here was a solid season, it had its shock moments for sure but it still lacked compared to the first. The finale had some pacing issues here & there but overall it wrapped shit up nice, it ended on more of a down note which i did enjoy, the end with McAdams was left open and that too i thought was good, the unknown future.
