Not. Even. Close. (to the first one)
HUGE let down, this was not at all the caliber the first one was, even though they tried to ape it as much as possible. I bought the first season and watched it 5-10 times all the way through by now, this second season I watched once on TV (for free) and barely did that. Season one was intriguing and interesting, with clever writing and filmed with style; season two is semi-interesting but more depressing and not even in a way that serves the story. The reflections the characters say to themselves and each other are actually meaningless babble and the whole production seems routine, not inspired like the first.
It delivers…big time!
I’m aware of the criticism leveled at TD S2, but I beg to differ. One reason is my wife and I did exactly what we did with Season 1, but only right away: We watched each episode a 2nd time the night after it aired (we watched all of them first at air time). What we saw was a completely different show that operates on a deeper level than one viewing can convey. The character arcs, the clues, the dynamics of relationships, all of it comes into bas relief on the 2nd viewing, and the result is an utterly satisfying show that I believe will have an even longer life than the first. Season 1 was truly brilliant, but most of its appeal was in the darkly atmospheric world that writer Pizzolatto and director Fukunaga brought to us. Season 2 is brilliant, as well (nor is as misogynistic as S1, quite the contrary) and is a deeper, more satisfying exploration of humankind’s darker obsessions and frailties than S1 ever came close to. Th only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I felt the choice of several directors left the execution a little uneven. I’d recommend it to anyone who lives great character-driven crime drama, but only if you’re going to watch it like you would read a great book.
Season 2 welcomes judgement.
I’m a HUGE fan of the first season of true detective, watching it over and over an obscene amount of times. It is, hands down, my favorite TV season of all time. I was pumped for season 2, and to be honest, right off the bat it starts out slow. You are not going to get the same crime drama with 2 strong leads bantering back and forth with epic dialogue.. The story is a little more convoluted than season 1, but I’m going to advise you to stick in until the end. Unlike season 1 which peaked in episode 4, this gets stronger and stronger as the season goes on. If you are not into scripts with “big words” or if you are a fleeting television watcher, you will not like this. You have to pay attention or you will get lost. As a matter of fact, you will have to watch each episode a few times to grasp the tie-ins to the plot line. Nic Pizzolatto makes sure to stick a lot of plot material in every episode, even if you don’t know it’s happening. I also loved the LA Noire theme to the whole season, very cool.
Don’t expect Rust Cohle and Marty Hart, but definitely give it a shot.
