2. true de­teC­tive

The Mail on Sunday - Event - - FRONT PAGE -

The first sea­son of­fered a ripe, at­mo­spheric slice of South­ern gothic as two Louisiana de­tec­tives – Matthew McConaughey and Woody Har­rel­son – in­ves­ti­gate rit­u­al­is­tic mur­ders seem­ingly linked to a quasi-re­li­gious cult. McConaughey’s char­ac­ter, Rust Cohle, ex­pe­ri­ences hal­lu­ci­na­tions as a re­sult of his years as an un­der­cover drugs cop, and is given to mak­ing gnomic pro­nounce­ments such as: ‘Time is a flat cir­cle.’ The sec­ond sea­son, set in Cal­i­for­nia, with a new cast and sto­ry­line, was less well re­ceived – but hopes are high for the up­com­ing third, about miss­ing chil­dren in Mis­souri.
