True Detective is a crime drama the follows two Louisiana detective on the hunt for a serial killer. One officer is a former under cover agent who's wits and lack of social skills make him a hit with everyone. Then there is his partner who is a family man who enjoys a woman on the side but is not above taking the moral high ground on others. Together these two try to piece together a string of murders over several years. Each murder and new clue leading them down a dark dark hole in which there seems to be no escaping. This leads to an obsession that starts to leak into there personal lives.
This is one of my favorite shows ever. It story telling and cinematography paint beautiful yet creep tale that is hard to look away from. The acting in the series is some the best I have seen. The two leads Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson do a great job in making you believe they are these characters. If you have not watch this series and have HBO you have been missing out. Make sure you only watch the first season though because the second one is trash.
