Jim and A.Ron attempt to have a nuanced discussion on the ups and downs of Season Two of True Detective. We talk about what worked, what didn’t, the possibility of a RenaiVance, and wonder about the identity of the series as we anticipate Season Three.

After seeing the premiere, Jim & A.Ron are lukewarm on the premiere but still on board and ready for the dots to connect. The psychosphere is a little more subtle but still in full effect. Check out the podcast for our thoughts, your feedback and a big ol’ sniff of that LA smog psychosphere.
Season 2 is almost upon us and we’ve read other people’s reviews of the first 3 episodes, which means we’re 100% equipped to judge the season as a whole.
In this episode of 108 of HBO’s True Detective series, “Form and Void”, Rust and Marty visit Carcosa, make peace with their families, and consider whether the Light is winning the war against Darkness.
