‘True Detective’ Season 2 Is Doing Something Genius

True Detective” finally premiered its much-awaited new season. According to Business Insider, the things we are expecting and the story which we saw were “not so good” by the flowing storyline and the slow-moving nature of the show. But if you watch it closely, you find out that the writers are doing something amazing with the show. Read on.

First of all, this season took in Los Angeles and has the multi-star roster including Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn. The first three plays the role of different law enforcement officers and Vaughn plays the role of an honest to earth crime boss.


The Episode 1 of “True Detective” season 2 is a collection of different stories, said in bite-size slices of different individual insights into the characters. One can even say that most of the scenes are not even plot driven. But, it was said these small instances are crucial to the development of characters. It also provide us the information about the flow of season 2.

The outlet also said that “True Detective” season 2 is going to change the script. Every character from the series gets a few scenes of them living outside the big plot of the show and the actual big plot starts at the 60th minute of it, well the length of the show is around 60 minutes only but by the time we reach at the end of the episode, we sure don’t know about the big plot but we have every bit of idea about the ideologies of all the characters.

Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) likes having weird sex and she has an estranged relationship with her father and sister. At nights, she likes to drink and gamble.

Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) has a drinking problem. He was also trying to get custody of his son.

Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) has many scars on his body and loves to ride his motorcycle at high speed that gives him “a self-destructive tendency.”

Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) is a criminal boss and has a good heart and has already worked with Ray Velcoro in the past.

As the episode ends we find out more about the characters and to boost up your season, we think this is a remarkable thing. We just wish that in episode 2 of “True Detective” we get to see more from the plot.
