It’s one of the most addictive, darkest, and at times, slow-moving show on premium-cable right now…True Detective is like Lethal Weapon meets Twin Peaks meets Angel Heart (see below). Matthew McConaughey (as Rust Cohle) and his real-life bestie Woody Harrelson (as Martin Hart) are incredible as two very very flawed and dysfunctional detectives who happen to be emotionally-handcuffed to each other all because of a old closed case of Satanic serial killer.
I think that sums it up, but at the same time, there’s some sticky sexual betrayal, tons of flashbacks, a disturbing daughter-gone-wild, a mysterious internal investigation, drastic hair-style changes, Rust Cohle’s deep philosophical thoughts about doomed humanity…all in a drawling Louisiana accent. Party Time, Excellent!
It’s exactly this enticing but confusing mix that made me laugh out loud when I watched this True Detective spoof from Community‘s Joel McHale and The Soup…
