What’s So Funny About “True Detective”?
Ian Crouch on why the show has moved both fans and detractors to respond with humor: http://nyr.kr/1fLSGCb
“Maybe we feel compelled to giggle at what we don’t understand, or what we don’t want to think about too closely—a reflexive response to being drawn in by a story that turns on murder, conspiracy, and sexual exploitation, notably of children.”
I have only watched the first 3 episodes but I am already hooked. This show has amazing writing and dialogue.
