The Western Book of the Dead

Something happened. That's not a phrased used in the premiere, but it comes within the first three episodes, which I've had an opportunity to see, and it speaks to the theme a bit. Something happened to the people we're introduced to in True Detective Season 2 Episode 1 to bring them to this place in their lives. They're all pretty dark. Only one of them seems to be grasping at the light, and after the events of the premiere, you get the impression that any remaining light is about to be y... more

The evidence in William’s recovered backpack points to an adult — who else would buy all those toys for him? How does the communion photo figure into all this, given Will’s body was left in a similar, praying pose after his death? And what about the dice, the bloody rocks, and the house near the suspected murder site? Speaking of the ... more

TV Review: 'True Detective' Season 3

With its new installment “True Detective,” one of TV’s most baroque series, is keeping things simple — relatively speaking. Some things haven’t changed: Yes, the third season restlessly jumps through time. (It moves between 1980, 1990 and 2015, to be exact.) And as Det. Wayne Hays, a cop investigating the disappearance of two children in small-town Arkansas, Mahershala Ali lends gutsy commitment and a willingness to be shrouded in old-age makeup, just as Matthew McCo... more
