True Detective Season 2 wrapped up with a 90-minute episode Sunday night, and the heart of the mystery turned out to be what theorists had been speculating online recently. Not that it was ever obvious – you'd have had to be watching very closely from the start to come up with the right conclusion.
Spoiler alert about the killer/killers.
Then again, the series didn't necessarily encourage you to pay close attention. There seemed to be hundreds of repetitive scenes in which Vince Vaughn, as a fundamentally noble mobster-businessman, tried to iron things out with his fundamentally noble wife (Kelly Reilly). If she'd been a proper femme fatale or old-school moll, that would have been different. Instead, they were Phil and Claire Dunphy making do in a rotten stinking world.

Note to haters of season 2 of HBO's True Detective: You have a point.
The series heads into its 90-minute finale Sunday with none of the intense anticipation that preceded the conclusion of season 1 in March 2014. Dissatisfaction with this sprawling but tepid L.A. noir – set not in Los Angeles proper but a scummy neighboring municipality called Vinci – has been voiced so clearly, HBO's programming president recently assured the conference of the Television Critics Association that TD2's conclusion will be very satisfying.
However, a bright silk bow isn't much good when it's tied around an old cardboard shoebox.

Jake Gyllenhaal endured months of intense training to transform himself into a boxer in his latest film, Southpaw, but he didn't need a coach for the softer side of the role – playing a father.

[YOUTUBE "G0PYK0nXx4g"] Have you been watching the current season of True Detective and thinking "Hey, this would be better with more car chases?"
Well, at least several other people thought so too, and now a mash-up of the show with another famous Los Angeles-based cop series, Starsky & Hutch, delivers exactly that, with the latter's classic theme song to boot.

By the end of the first three episodes of season 2 of HBO's True Detective, you'll begin to detect a huge, disturbing mystery, much as you might begin to detect a big, hairy, red-eyed spider as you make your way across a spider web. (This imagines, of course, that you have been made very tiny.) It's powerful. And unnerving.
But you have to make your way across all that web first. The premiere is tons and tons of web – nothing but web: sticky and frustrating.

Internet, we've got a case to crack: What is going to happen in True Detective's second season?
A new trailer for the HBO drama dropped Thursday, but it doesn't make deciphering the anthology's heavily-guarded plot any easier.
The new teaser gives us a little more information than the first: We hear bits and pieces of dialogue, and Rachel McAdams shows us she's not to be messed with as her character, Officer Ani Bezzerides.
"This girl's gone missing," she growls. "Nobody cares. The Interior's poisoned and suddenly worth billions. Nobody cares?"
