Yeah, I got that vibe too, not sure if that's what Pizzalato was going for though.

They played on the emotions throught and it seemed they would actually make it out unscathed.

Season 1 as a bar is too high of a standard to go by. When I watch the first season it is perfection from the beginning to the end.


how exactly did it save the season?

I wouldn't say that it saved the season. It was better than I feared it might be, but it wasn't as solid an episode altogether as episode 7 was.

In the episodes before they would play on emotions but get diverted because of the depth of the story. When Farrell is with his father you expect a sign of what he will be with his son. McAdams waivering from ice-queen, serial sexer, and damaged woman is also only broached in minor terms.

The Finale allowed everything that was hinted at to come to fruition. It was Farrell's dedication as a father outside of ego and even paternity that compelled him to say goodbye. He was worthy the same way his father was. McAdams wasn't some machine that has sex on occasion but a woman looking for love and being capable of giving it as well.

The execution of the scenes was great as well. Even when you saw what was coming; there was still a glimmer of hope that you could cling to mixed with the anxiety.

I liked the first season far better so compared to its predecessor it's disappointing. I guess you liked the second season better somehow. And yet you say I fail at TV. Irony.

laughing out loud

From the first minute of the 2nd season I resigned myself not to judge it by the first season. Rational people like I, Lordofbrooklyn, know it is better to allow a work to stand on its own.

That's like saying don't hold Star Wars to a higher standard or this show. I hold certain products and brands to a higher standard. I was let down whereas you loved it. That's fine.

The only thing one should enter a work of fiction with as a consumer is the suspension of disbelief. Anything besides that is an impediment toward enjoying the work.

The first season of TRUE DETECTIVE is one of the greatest seasons in the history of the medium. Expecting a repeat or even more a superior work in season 2 is an unreasonable standard.

I maintain that Vaughn was the best part of this season. Frank's final, defiant march was brilliant, and tragic as ****.

Well, season 2 was a bit bland on the whole. Good acting comeback by Vaughn, liked McAdams.

I hope to see Vaughn in more serious roles from now on. I like a lot of his comedies (Wedding Crashers, Old School, and Dodge Ball are his best), but I've never thought of him as a comedian in the same way Will Farrel, Owen Wilson, or Jonah Hill are comedians. He's generally the straight man in his comedies.

I think it's a bit ridiculous not to compare the seasons simply because they aren't part of a continuing story line. The characters in Season One were dynamic and interesting, but none of them felt fake. Vaughn and his wife offered almost no depth until late in the season, the kid in the raven mask was completely unbelievable in his role, and on and on.

The plot of this season was convoluted to the point of being farcical. The depth of the conspiracy, how many of the murders were carried out, the train station scene, so much of it was over the top and unrealistic in any way.

There were two amazing episodes in the season and the finale had great moments, but judged against season one or any other quality show in general there were so many issues that just take away from it being great. I love some of the performances, I love some of the elements that were used in the final episodes, but some things were so horribly, desperately off that I can't ever consider it the success it could have been.

Two or three great episodes, and a lot of mistakes in the interim.

Season 3 announced. Let's just hope it's more like the amaze balls season one than the train wreck season two.

S2 while not nearly as good as S1, not even close, was still a decent show. Better than a lot of the crap out there. So I'm hyped for S3, even if I know it'll never be equal to S1

Never finished S2.

Season 1 is exceptional though. Happy that they're giving it another try. Hopefully the extra time between season 2 and 3 will allow them to develop a more interesting story.

You should, it's good when all is said and done. Just don't compare it to S1, cos it will lack severely storywise. Ray Velcoro is good, but he's no Rustin Cohle, not even close.
