Thoughts On: True Detective S2E2...

           I'm really struggling to find anything (good) to say about this show. The premiere was slow (and that generous), episode 2 was not much better...
This same shot basically summarizes the 2nd episode...

1. The Moody, Broody, Dark, and Dreariness of the Show is Getting to Me:
I loved the thematic darkness of the first season, I think we all did, but season 2 is trying too hard. They even decided to include that depressing guitar girl from the first episode. Season 1 was able to get away with such darkness because Woody Harrelson's relatable character balanced everything out. Every character on this show is
about as happy and relatable as Casper...

One of the shots that seemingly proves Farrell is alive...
2. Colin Farrell Gets Shot: 
Is he dead? honestly I thought those shots were like rock salt or something...But either way, I kind of don't care. None of the characters have been likable enough for me to care about them dying this early in the show. Many have cited that the season 2 trailers have footage of Farrell that hasn't aired, but who knows, maybe they through it in there to mislead us...

           Well thats about it...the plot is slow and the characters act like they don't want to be on the show. The traffic shots are nice though...
