True Detective 1.02 Review: “Seeing Things”

“I know who I am… there’s victory to be found in that.” – Rust Cohle

As True Detective burrows further into the psyche of its two main characters in “Seeing Things”, it also spreads itself out thematically, exploring every nook and cranny of the gray areas between ‘good’ and ‘bad’, and ‘angel’ and ‘sinner’. With the spiritual and literal symbolism flowing, “Seeing Things” is a very dense hour of television – but a deeply rewarding one, moving its focus away from the narrative to firmly establish itself as a contemplative character piece, rather than a superficial macabre drama with a penchant for awesome monologues.
