Why True Detective Deserves to Win an Emmy

Originally posted 08/24/2014 05:35PM

WARNING: Contains language, violence

Much of True Detective's appeal is based on Matthew McConaughey's riveting performance as (true) Detective Rustin Cohle and the loopy, dark cop-buddy chemistry he summoned with real-life pal Woody Harrelson, to say nothing of Nic Pizzolatto's dense, allusion-heavy dialogue.

But the show's visual style deserves a big shout-out as well, and it's for a combination of all of those reasons that it deserves to walk home with the Emmy for best drama.

Pizzolatto and director Cary Fukunaga sketched a compelling, singular vision of Louisiana (and Texas) for the show: Inspired by photographer Richard Misrach's work documenting Louisiana's "Chemical Corridor," Petrochemical America, they developed a stark, bleached look for the show.

Why Woody Harrelson Deserves the Emmy for True Detective

Originally posted 08/24/2014 05:30PM

WARNING: Video contains profanity

Though Woody Harrelson's Martin Hart spent much of True Detective being a straight man to Matthew McConaughey's Rustin Cohle and doling out droll reaction lines like, "Stop saying odd s---," Harrelson wasn't just comic relief.

True Detective: Flawed Finale to a Classic Series

'Yellow King Theory': Watch the Web's Funniest True Detective Parodies

Originally posted 03/09/2014 04:40PM

With its obsessed fan base, wild-eyed monologues and sprawling Lovecraftian mythos, HBO neo-noir True Detective is ripe for satire. As the series gears up for its finale Sunday night, a number of online jokers have gotten their parodies out at exactly the right time.

Our favorite is Onion veteran David Sidorov's "Yellow King Theory," which pokes fun at the insane brand of hyper-analysis the show has inspired in its fans. Sidorov's theory of who the real killer is might seem unconventional at first, but with his obsessive eye for detail, he's spotted clues that more casual viewers probably missed.
