    Season two of True Detective has been shooting for a while now and HBO has enough footage to assemble this first look teaser, which shows off at least how the new episodes in the anthology season will...

    SPOILER ALERT for "True Detective" Season 2, Episode 3, "Maybe Tomorrow." Just three episodes in, it’s still too early to convict True Detective on charges of mediocrity, nonsensicality and criminal overuse of cliches. But the evidence is mounting, and the investigators are building one hell of a case. Season 2 of HBO’s dark crime drama is essentially a brand new show, since it shares nothing with the critically lauded first season aside from creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto. The actors are new (Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are replaced by Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch), the location is new (the gloomy Louisiana...

    Last year's True Detective was a chillingly dark and disturbing highlight in what was a pretty fine 12 months for television dramas. Both Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey rightly received best actor Emmy nominations for their portrayals of Louisiana police officers, Marty Hart and Rust Cohle, respectively, on the hunt for a ritualistic serial killer. It was an intense and haunting delve into the human psyche, and proved to be a dazzling display of televisual storytelling - one that would be difficult to better. We'll see whether the second series of True Detective can do so tomorrow, on HBO, at 9am (repeated at 9pm). The new season lacks Skinny and Woody and the whole big bag of...

    Through its dense first season, HBO's True Detective became a pop culture phenomenon that inspired increasingly ridiculous and ambitious forms of clue-gathering and solution-mongering, when it was basically just a straightforwardly offbeat detective drama. For Season 2, creator Nic Pizzolatto left out the Yellow King and the potential for the supernatural, but still compounded the dark and gritty for a similarly captivating and convoluted murder case that falls a shade shy of nihilistic. But everyone is still incredibly shady. Meet Detective Ray Velcoro, played with a mustachioed and drunken urgency by Colin Farrell. His years in the field have only raised his intensity and fractured his...

    A tiny naked woman floating in a bowl of milk. A giant black eagle riding shotgun in a Cadillac. A murdered corrupt bureaucrat with a kinky streak who died of a “massive pelvic wound” and had his eyes burned out with acid. It’s only the first episode of True Detective Season 2, and things are already getting pretty weird. SEE ALSO: Two new 'True Detective' teasers will whet your appetite for destruction Much of the fun of watching Season 1 was diving down the rabbit holes opened by Nic Pizzolato’s gothic red herrings and oblique allusions to Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow. That obscure weird-fiction reference alone would launch a thousand wild theories, all of them wrong. Well, let...

    Waring: MAJOR spoilers ahead The finale to season 2 of "True Detective" wound up to be as violent and unforgiving as the whole season. And that's a good thing. One of the only downfalls of the first season of the series was how nicely everything was tied up by the final episode, with detectives Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Hart (Woody Harrelson) limping off into the darkness as best friends. It wasn't likely "True Detective" creator Nic Pizzolatto would do that a second time. Here's how things turned out for the main characters of season 2 that made it to the finale. Detective Ray Velcoro After tracking down the shotgun-wielding crow-mask wearing guy who shot him in...

    The first episode of True Detective’s second season opens with a grizzled detective - this time played by Colin Farrell instead of Matthew McConaughey - being interviewed about a grisly crime. It could have been a scene from the show’s incredible first season and writer Nic Pizzolatto was probably inviting us to draw comparisons between the two. But quickly, the new season reveals that the storytelling will not be like season one, and yet this still feels like a crime worthy to succeed that first season. The crime at the center of season two, which could easily be subtitled “Starring Actors...

    After more than a year of casting rumors, memes and hashtag wish lists and confusion over the plot, "True Detective" Season 2 finally premiered on Sunday night. The first episode of the new season, which is completely separate from Season 1, introduced audiences to a new round of characters, a fictional city and an entirely new mystery. Each week, The Huffington Post Entertainment editors Matthew Jacobs and Erin Whitney will gab about their thoughts on the season. First up, a bit of a bummer with Sunday's premiere: Spoiler alert for "True Detective" Season 2, Episode 1, "The Western Book of the Dead." Erin Whitney: So, Matt, after all the hype building up to "True Detective" Season 2 -- and...

    Ben Caspere, the murdered man at the heart of True Detective's second season, got his eyes burned out with acid. To many viewers who stayed with the series to the end, he got off easy. Sidebar Top 5 TV: 'True Detective' Staggers Off Into the Horizon » With its eighth and final episode in the ground (along with three quarters of its core cast), TD 2.0 has emerged as the year's most passionately disliked show. Some of that reaction can surely be dismissed as bandwagoneering – everybody enjoys a good dogpile now and then ­– but much of it was earned the hard way. Like the killing of Caspere, the acting, the directing and the writing never quite added up. It's...

    Goodybe Rust, hello Antigone Brigit Katz 06.22.15 Photo courtesy of HBO This review contains minor spoilers. Please stop reading now if you don’t want to know anything about True Detective’s new season. While the inaugural season of True Detective wasn’t quite the masterpiece it was hailed to be, there was a lot to like about its slick bayou aesthetic and Nietzschean funk. The show was HBO’s version of Starsky and Hutch —if Starsky and Hutch had fallen into a Louisiana swamp and emerged with deeply rooted psychological complexes. Season two chucks all of this in favor of a new ensemble cast and a West Coast setting—the fictional city of Vinci, a grimy industrial hub outside Los Angeles. For...

    By Rodrigo Perez | The Playlist Sun Jun 21 20:55:54 EDT 2015 0 0 1 “This is my least favorite life,” singer Lera Lynn spookily laments in a dilapidated dive bar in the polluted Vinci City, L.A. County, the fictional and bleak industrial setting for HBO’s second season of “True Detective.” Looking vacant, haggard, possibly strung out — is that a bruise under her eye? — Lynn slowly strums out a sullen countrified funeral dirge more depressing than Cat Power’s worst downer. “This is my least favorite life,” she moans in a lifeless voice. “The one where you fly and I don’t. A kiss holds a million deceits, and a lifetime goes up in smoke.” Meanwhile, the broken down, morally compromised detective...

    Few shows have been ripped apart quite like the second of ‘True Detective.’ But, with its campy characters and outrageous plot(s), it will find an appreciative fan base—eventually. Shop ▾ Critics and the viewing public have hurled more feces at True Detective’s second season than any show in recent memory. Hell, on Sunday, mere hours before the finale aired, The New York Times trolled the show by running a video mashup of people fumbling through explanations of its labyrinthine plot. But Nic Pizzolatto’s heavy-handed exploration of mayhem and masculinity was doomed from the start—both by the lofty expectations established in the wake of its tremendous first season, and the ensuing...

    It's now been confirmed that the second season of Nic Pizzolatto's brutal, poetic crime saga will premiere on Sunday, June 21 on HBO at 9pm, and will be simulcast on Sky Atlantic at 2am UK time (followed by a primetime airing on Monday June 22). It feels like a long, long time since we left Rust and Marty to their unexpectedly hopeful conclusion under the stars. But from what we know so far about the upcoming second season, it definitely doesn't sound as though the light's winning. Just look at Colin Farrell's moustache. Digital Spy takes a look through all the information we have on season two so far, including the plot, the cast, their characters - and each dramatic new trailer: The basics...

    LOS ANGELES — "Think it over, Velcoro," Ani Bezzerides says to Colin Farrell's character in this week's True Detective. "Never too late to start all over again." Apparently not. And so Season 2 starts the story all over again, again, with "Other Lives." Well, enough is enough. I've had it with this damn show, and its red herrings, lazy fast-forwards and whiplash do-overs. And we're just at EPISODE 5, for goodness' sake. SEE ALSO: Welcome to Vernon, the bizarro real-life 'Vinci' from 'True Detective' I stayed up late Sunday night watching "Other Lives" with the intent of writing a flash recap, a practice I managed to keep going for the first four episodes.
