Where the show gains its power for an audience, I think, is in things that aren't investigative at all. It's in two men talking to one another in a car. It's in a man coming over to another man's house for dinner and eating with his family. Those are the things that always interest me."  Read More... //www.tvguide.com/News/True-Detective-Nic-Pizzolatto-Matthew-McConaughey-1075552.aspx?rss=breakingnews
