Even before HBO's 'True Detective' captivated audiences and inspired a wave of think pieces on everything from literary references to its take on women, the moody FBI drama had feature director Cary Fukunaga behind the camera to deliver its iconic visual flair. Now, with season 2 all-but-assured, what role will Fukunaga have with future 'True Detective,' and how might creator Nic Pizzolatto shake things up with its new leading roles?
There's been some talk in recent weeks about the trouble with the female characters on 'True Detective,' and that talk hit a boiling point this week following the airing of "Haunted Houses," in which Marty gets up to his old habits and Maggie retaliates, causing many critics to lash out at the show's portrayal and treatment of women -- but the show isn't treating its female characters poorly, the men are. And there's a big difference.
Welcome back to 'Girls' Talk where we here at ScreenCrush are joined by critics to discuss the latest episode.

HBO seems to have finally broken suit this Sunday without any new looks at 'Game of Thrones' season 4, but we've got the next best thing. 'Office Space' and 'Beavis & Butthead' creator Mike Judge has a brand-new comedy debuting on HBO this coming April called 'Silicon Valley,' the first full trailer for which arrived online!
On tonight's new episode of 'Girls,' Hannah's interview with the legendary Patti LuPone (!!!) plants some doubts in her mind about Adam's newfound success on Broadway. Meanwhile, Jessa backslides when a familiar face resurfaces, and Marnie's relationship with Ray faces its first major hurdle. Looks like that fight at the beach house last week didn't keep the ladies apart for long.
On tonight's all-new episode of 'True Detective,' Rust spends his off-duty hours tracking leads to discover more about the mysteries behind the Yellow King and Carcosa, while Marty spends his off-hours backsliding and losing touch with his family. It's not long before the past and present start to collide in an illuminating hour that takes us further into the darkness that lurks within everyone -- yes, even Maggie.

While HBO hasn't yet taken to casting 'True Detective' Season 2, that hasn't stopped the millions of fans from suggesting some of their favorite duos on Twitter with the hashtag #truedetectiveseason2. The results were...hilarious.
