HBO's True Detective - Catch this Crime Caper

I was excited to watch the premiere of HBO's True Detective. I even encouraged friends and family to watch. Something I usually refrain from doing.

First, it's HBO, they have a reputation for well-made programming; they are the station to beat. Second, they managed to secure Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, film talents that signed on for a television show because they will only be a part of it for the first season.

True Detective will be an anthology. Each season will have a completely new cast and story- unrelated to the previous seasons.

The show has only one writer, Nic Pizzolatto, and one director, Cary Fukunaga. This is unique as televisions shows use different directors for each episode and a bevy of writers. What this means is a cohesiveness usually unattainable.

The season opened with a crime scene set in Louisiana. The characters Rust Cohle and Martin Hart discover a ritualistic killing. The story is told from two different points, during the original murder investigation in 1995 and in a retrospective in 2012.

The cinematography is impressive.
