“True Detective” both gives and takes away. Just when I thought the show had finally found its footing and was ready to deliver on its promise, here comes an episode like last night’s “Down Will Come.” Two-thirds concerned with a fairly slow-moving, muddled procedural and one-third with a fiery and harrowing shoot-out, this episode overall represents a lot of the second season’s flaws.
Once again, I’ve hopped on the phone with Brad Brevet from Rope Of Silicon and we’ve dug into the latest episode of “True Detective.” With only four episodes to go, the mystery is as tangled as ever, though some clues are now beginning to emerge. Meanwhile, we’re pretty curious how the other threads will tie together, or if they will in an organic manner. Meanwhile, will Frank ever get the avocado harvest he deserves? Will that woman find a gig in another bar so we can stop listening to those songs?
