I thought this was great. the actors were ideal for their parts I really enjoyed this and highly recommended it
I found the start slow and got slightly annoyed by the flash forwards, but persevered and I'm glad I did. One of the best shows I've seen in along time. Throughly enjoyed the story, sets and scenes... Read more. McConaughey and Harrelson are great. Well worth a view.
If you have seen The Messenger then I would not bother with True Detective. Woody plays this role in a similar. The only good point of the film it introduces Matthew McConaughey. I am returning Disks... Read more 2 & 3 unwatched as there is enough misery out there and I don't need anymore of what I mental pollution. Plenty of other Titles at FATSO, this one series I recommend you give a miss.
With this cast I thought this would be great. Watched two episodes before quitting. Slow, meandering, complicated - but mainly just SSLLLOOOOWWW. Maybe better if you are watching it week to week with commercials??
I just love this series. It is slow but very riveting, waiting for the next thing to happen. Three hours long, but it doesn't seem that long. Cannot wait to watch the next disc. Great acting by two... Read more very fine actors, and some very oddball supporting characters - love it!
Great music as well.
Fantastic theme song - totally appropriate and sets the right mood. McConaughey has the most interesting character but unfortunately doesn't enunciate his words very well.
First off, it's really compelling. It's also extremely complicated, unpleasant, too long, and the way the show is structured it turns into an acting competition between the two leads - which gets a... Read more bit trying. It's more like a graphic comic come to life than a regular detective show, and it's got all the baggage that comes with that genre. Hideous crimes, purple dialogue, and grotesque characters. But once you start, you'll be in for the long haul. Ignore the comments that the second series is poor-it's entirely different, but just as good.
Interesting story and great acting by McConaughey but I found it too disturbing. Definitely not for the light hearted.
A slow burner of a series that slowly draws you in. At the beginning I wasn't sure about this but by the end I was hooked.
Best show I've seen in a very long time. Great character development/study and amazing cinematography. Matthew McConaughey is a very underrated actor, he was amazing in this show.
