Television True Detective: Season 3 - Official Discussion Thread

Just as long as it isn't as jumbled and confusing as Season 2.

I am assuming it is True Detectives: Season 1: Season 2: The Third Season.

I'm sad to hear about the issues between first two episodes of season 3 director Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin, Green Room) and writer Nic Pizzolatto (who also famously butted heads against all episodes of season 1 director Cary Fukunaga) but we're still getting two episodes directed by Jeremy Saulnier. And Pizzolatto has taken his time again this time, which is good, and one episode was even co-written by David Milch (Deadwood). All starring Mahershala Ali.

 

There's a lot of potential good there.

True Detective definitely has a style.  

 

There could have been no titles on that, and watching about 15 seconds of it was easily recognizable as True Detective.  With no returning actors that is quite a feat.

Earlier reviews are quite strong. Basically the first half of the season (which reviewers had access to) is not-quite-as-good as Season 1, but MUCH better than Season 2.

Definitely harkens back to Season 1 (thankfully!) both structurally as well as thematically.

First two episodes were very good, and more importantly, intriguing. Great writing, directing, and acting. Derivative of the first season in terms of tone and feel, but at least a cohesive story told well (unlike season 2, which I enjoyed but was clearly far worse than season 1). Love the unreliable narration and the Kurt Vonnegut-esque feeling of our main character being "unstuck in time". 

 

Jeremy Saulnier directing the first two episodes of the season really showed - love his work (Blue Ruin, Green Room, Hold the Dark).

Anyone else keeping up with this, because damn it's good. 

 

The makeup on Ali to make him look older is also great. That and his acting really makes him seem like a much older man.

Been very much enjoying the season so far. It's not as good as season 1, but it is good in its own right. 

It is great.  A little premature to judge it in comparison to season 1 since we don't have the complete season yet.

Based on last night's episode, I've come to the conclusion that

I mean at this point it'd have to do some pretty incredible things to reach those heights, but it's okay that if it doesn't anyway.

I've had that feeling for a couple of episodes now.

Finished the season last night. I think my overall feelings are that it was a generally well made show, but it didn't bowl me over.
