Who Knows What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Men?

I think Emily Nussbaum makes a lot of sense in her critique of HBO’s True Detective series  but I still find the show engaging. It is portentous at times but the atmosphere is also unnerving. The entire show is beautifully crafted and Woody Harrelson is terrific. His partner, Matthew McConaughey’s has a tough, demanding role and he’s often compelling but he does enough melodramatic inhaling each time he takes a drag from a cigarette to take me out of the scene. Still, his self consciousness isn’t enough to spoil things.
I like that it’s an 8 episode season. Next year, the show will have different actors and characters.
