True Detective


True Detective is an American anthology crime drama television series created and written by Nic Pizzolatto. The show premiered on January 12, 2014, on HBO, and it has three seasons, each consisting of eight episodes. The series is set in Louisiana and follows two detectives, Rustin Cohle and Martin Hart, as they investigate a series of gruesome murders.

The show has received critical acclaim for its writing, cinematography, and performances, particularly those of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the first season. True Detective has been praised for its unconventional storytelling, nonlinear narrative, and use of philosophical themes. The first season in particular has been noted for its exploration of existentialism and nihilism.

True Detective has been compared to other popular crime dramas such as The Wire, Breaking Bad, and Fargo. It has also been noted for its use of the anthology format, which allows each season to tell a self-contained story with new characters and settings. While the second season was met with mixed reviews, the third season received critical acclaim and was seen as a return to form for the series.
