True Detective

Wow, there has been a lot of hype about this series. The critics have praised it, both for the story and the acting and my Twitter feed has been filled with news about the series for a few months.

Now I have seen the first episode.

So how was it?

You can tell it is an HBO series, the quality is consistently high. The series’ two stars, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, are both excellent actors. The story is interesting and exciting… but… I cannot say that the series is groundbreaking in any way. However, I cannot judge the whole series based on just one episode, there are seven more to come, but I would be surprised if it turns out to be anything other than a very traditional dark crime series (albeit very well-made).
