I've been re-capping "True Detective" for a website called TrashTalkTV. My re-cap of the finale included all of my collected thoughts about the series. In short...brilliant. I think having the same director for each episode really helped the show establish and maintain a strong visual style and I love the fact that it was an anthology. Anthologies (like American Horror Story) are such a great way to tell "spooktacular" stories. The only thing that makes me sad is that I will no longer have the adventures of Rust and Cohle to look forward to on Sunday nights.
