Tonight brings the season finale of 'True Detective,' in which all the creeping tension and unnerving suspense comes to a full boil, and Marty and Rust come face to gnarly face with the Yellow King himself. For those seeking a rewarding conclusion to the first season, "Form and Void" definitely delivers, from full-out creepiness to good ol' Rust Cohle-isms, and yes, even some deep fried detective bromance.
Earlier this week we saw what might prove to be the (yellow) king of 'True Detective' parodies, but the latest to emerge on HBO's buzzworthy drama is at least a close second. Watch 'Community' stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash take on the mush-mouthed roles of Rustin Cohle and Martin Hart in 'The Soup''s take on 'True Detective'!
On tonight's all-new, penultimate episode of 'True Detective' (we know, we can hardly believe it's almost over, either), Marty and Rust reunite in present day -- it's time to pay their old debt on the Dora Lange case, and the cases of every other missing woman and child in Louisiana who went unnoticed. The detectives team up to attempt to solve the mystery of Carcosa and the Yellow King once and for all, and they come chillingly closer than ever.
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.
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.
HBO's ‘True Detective’ has neither completed the course of its eight-episode run, nor has that Nic Pizzolato-scripted series even officially attained a season 2 renewal, but recently the internet has been abuzz with #TrueDetectiveSeason2 casting choices, both real and fake. The meme may have run its course, but we decided to take a serious approach to pool Hollywood A-list talent we’d like to see in ‘True Detective’ season 2!
We know that both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson will not be returning for 'True Detective' Season 2. This is not so much a spoiler as it is a simple fact: the show was developed as an anthology series that would follow new detectives and new cases from season to season. 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.
