Sharon and I finished watching True Detective on HBO on demand from Directv.
The eight episode series uses multiple timelines to trace two Louisiana State Police Criminal Investigations Division homicide detectives' hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana across seventeen years. It is set along the coastal plain of South Louisiana, where it was also filmed.
The series is very well done with tremendous acting by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. It is like watching an eight hour movie.
The show runner has stated that the second season will feature three new lead characters. He also stated that the season will take place in California but will exclude Los Angeles in favor of a lesser-known region of the state. True Detective season two will be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”
