    True Detective Weekly 8: Omega Station

    True Detective Season 2 is over, and it went out with a bang. Well, lots of bangs. It was an unusual season, and an unusual season finale—and as it turns out, we had more than a few conflicting thoughts about it. Tune in, then let us know what you thought!

    True Detective Weekly 7: Black Maps and Motel Rooms

    In the penultimate episode of True Detective season two, every step someone takes towards the truth, the tighter the noose cinches around their neck. When each character finds who is holding their rope, will they charge at them with full force, hunker down and ride it out, or burn everything down? Join us for a discussion of True Detective's "Black Maps and Motel Rooms."

    True Detective Weekly 6: Church in Ruins

    With an impressive infiltration-gone-wrong setpiece spanning much of its final third, this episode of True Detective Season 2 was among our favorite yet. The investigation chugged along, and our principal characters got to dive into some heady emotional material (well, maybe not Paul). We're only two episodes away from the end, and it feels like we're well on our way to wrapping things up.

    True Detective Weekly 5: Other Lives

    After last week's climactic gun battle, pieces of the mystery are coming together like they never have before. It's a big reset for True Detective Season 2—for its characters, for their investigation, and for the show as a whole. And that feels refreshing in many ways—but is it too much of a good thing?

    True Detective Weekly 4: Down Will Come

    By the end of this episode, we were left just as lost as our detectives were following their very bloody shootout. There were a lot of strong character moments in "Down Will Come," but overall we didn't find it to keep up the momentum of the preceding two much stronger installments. With half of the season done and half left to, we're still of two minds on the whole thing.

    True Detective Weekly 3: Maybe Tomorrow

    The plot threads keep piling up–but now we know the characters of True Detective Season 2 well enough to trust them to guide us through. "Maybe Tomorrow," our favorite episode of the season so far opens with an Elvis impersonator and ends with a fistful of teeth. What else do you need?
