This week, things got pretty stabby and sexy on “True Detective.” After being teased for weeks, we got taken into one of the creepy orgy parties that Ben Caspere was once so famous for throwing before he got brutally murdered, and oddly enough, it seems Stanley Kubrick got that world right in “Eyes Wide Shut.” All that was missing was Rachel McAdams carrying around a napkin with the word “Fidelio” written on it. However, cheekiness aside, and as noted in our recap, quite a few character and plot pieces moved around in episode six, “Church In Ruins.” (Clearly a metaphorical church, because no actual place of worship was harmed in this episode).
Brad Brevet from Rope Of Silicon has jumped on the phone this morning to discuss the latest episode. While we’ve both been looking for a little more from the show this season, we can’t deny we’re still being drawn in, as flawed as the proceedings have been. For every cliché moment, like Ray’s booze and cocaine-fueled relapse, there’s a genuine scene like Ani’s flashback to a traumatic childhood memory. So we had lots to talk about, and you can check it out below, download here or subscribe at iTunes. And check out the preview for Episode 7, “Black Maps And Motel Rooms.”
