Everything This Season of True Detective Made You Feel
Maybe our expectations were just too high. The first season of True Detective (after, admittedly, a warmup period) was one of the best shows of 2014, with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson delivering a dramatic gold mine, so our hopes were up there. And season two started off with potential, with a lot of excitement because of the promising cast, and when the premiere hit, it was, like, OK, there are some interesting questions here. But from pretty much the beginning, season two became the hate-watch of 2015, with viewers tuning in only to take to social media each Sunday to complain that they were underwhelmed and over this season (well, no complaints about this, anyway). It's been such a shared experience that I've pinpointed how it has felt every step of the way to watch True Detective season two.
