Synopsis:
The critically-acclaimed hit series returns with a new case and a new cast, starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch. A Highway Patrol motorcycle officer stumbles upon the scene of a bizarre murder, in which the victim's body has been ritually mutilated. The crime triggers an investigation that brings together three law-enforcement officers from different cities, each with troubled pasts, and a thug-turned-entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire.
As the case grows broader and darker - revealing multiple criminal collusions involving billions of dollars - it forces the participants to face their own inner demons in order to solve the crime, all the while navigating a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California.

Still superb, but just a different flavour of superb... - True Detective: Series 2 review by Schrödinger's Cake

Spoiler Alert
29/05/2016

Season two takes the broad general recipe from season one, substitutes a few ingredients here and there, then throws it back into the oven to see what comes out.

Gone is the immediate, intense darkness of the first, along with the electric relationship between the two main characters which for me made it so compelling to watch. Sadly, the stunning camera and post-production from the first also seems to have been watered down along the way too; where season one plays like a collection of feature films, season two definitively feels like something made for a TV budget.

The result being that if you simply expected more of the same, you’ll likely be disappointed. However, if you can approach it with an open mind (and can sit-out the first two episodes which are painfully slow) then you’ll be rewarded with some wonderfully rich acting, dialog, back-stories and plot.

Still superb, but just a different flavour of superb...

Truly brilliant - True Detective: Series 2 review by AD

Spoiler Alert
07/04/2016

I absolutely loved True Detective, and so I was really looking forward to the second series. This was amazingly even better. I would give it 6 stars if I could. The plot, atmosphere and characters were superb. The best performance I have ever seen by Vince Vaughan. You knew that he had to have been a bad ass to get where he was, and there were glimpses of it through the series, but while I was truly devastated by all the deaths at the end, his seemed the most poignant. I so wanted him to make it even though I knew he couldn't. Some of the best television I have ever seen. Outstanding.

Disappointingly weak after series 1 - True Detective: Series 2 review by RD

Spoiler Alert
10/10/2019

The first series had Woody Harrelson & Matthew McConnaughy playing two very strong but different detectives, and played very well. Great music by T Bone Burnett, all in all a notable and enjoyable series.

This series ( we managed to watch the first 5 episodes) has, by contrast two fairly weak main characters who don't seem to develop, or show any depth of character throughout the story. the other characters are either weak or not on screen enough to make an impact.

The plot is rather moth-eaten with so many short and unexplained scenes giving the result that we couldn't understand quite what was happening much of the time, and had to work hard to piece the plot together in later scenes to make some sense.

All in all, a bit shallow and confusing but we stuck with it and managed to get to episode 5 before giving up out of sheer indifference.
