Episode one has me really excited for the rest of the season. As I’d hoped, the first ep reveals a remarkably well made show. There were a few scenes in particular when Matthew McConaughey was absolutely electric, including the final line of the episode.
It’s obviously still too early, but after episode one I wouldn’t be surprised if he followed up his 2013 Golden Globe for film with a 2014 Golden Globe for television.
What also has me excited is to see how the show develops over the long haul, because it is an anthology, so each new season will have different actors, characters, time periods, etc. If the whole season is as good as week one, I can’t wait to see who else becomes a part of True Detective in time.
