What's Hot Today


We're already halfway through the first season of HBO's gritty crime anthology True Detective and in this week's episode, "Who Goes There," we see the personal and professional lives of Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) veer into even rockier territory. The episode opens with Hart and Cohle interrogating Dora Lange's imprisoned ex-husband Charlie (Brad Carter -- Editor's note: this review originally had the wrong name and actor for this role. We regret the error.) to get a line on prime suspect Reggie Ledoux, the masked ogre we saw skulking around in his tighty whities at the end of the previous episode. Reggie, we learn, is not only a meth cook for a Texas-based biker gang, but he's also into satanic worship. Basically, he's Time Man of the Year material.

True Detective 1.04 Review: “Who Goes There”

Where Marty Hart folds in the face of chaos, Rust Cohle embraces it, kisses it on the lips, and takes it out to dinner. “Who Goes There” not only marks Rust’s journey back into some of the  deeper circles of Hell , but a fascinating contrast between Marty and Rust, and how they react when the find themselves in the center of a tornado they can’t control. It’s often said that investigations take on a life of their own: True Detective ‘s fourth hour takes that idea to another level, an hour where an obscure lead in an investigation slowly spirals (wink, wink) out of control until the unfiltered chaos of the finale, one of the most exhilarating, anxiety-inducing sequences I’ve ever watched on television (clearly,  I’m not the only one  who thinks that). The first fifty minutes of “Who Goes There” is actually rather simplistic: alternating between Rust and Marty, the episode examines the differences between these men and how they react to stress in their personal and professional lives. Keeping with the show’s obsession with ambiguity, their actions throughout the episode both contrast and compliment each other: Rust certainly keeps his head cooler than Marty when an ugly bit of history surfaces – but he does so through a lot of drug use and Jameson-pounding, offering us an insight to the darker part of 1995 Rust that once spent four years working undercover (most detectives work 11 months, at most, according to Marty), the part of him that drinks like a fish and embraces the adrenaline within him.

'True Detective' Recap: Cohle Takes Extreme Measures to Find Ledoux

In this fourth episode of True Detective , we learn just how far crazy Rust Cohle will go to find a suspect. We also learn what the gunfight is that Marty Hart mentioned in the last episode, but we are no closer to who actually killed Dora Lange. I mean, we assume it's Reginald Ledoux, but the reality is, we just don't know.  Read More... //www.buddytv.com/articles/true-detective/true-detective-recap-cohle-tak-52560.aspx

True Detective Recap: Use Your Wet Noodle

  It doesn’t matter whether the story you’re telling centers on frayed, alcoholic investigators looking into psychosexual mutilation or quirky but affable lawmen peering into some white-collar caper. When cops and crooks play cat and mouse, the bad guys are almost certain to incite a chain reaction via hubris that exceeds their wits, while those in pursuit will play loose with their authority and contribute to a reckoning with no way out.   That’s exactly where Cohle finds himself in the final minutes of “Who Goes There,” a title that could rightly be posed as an incredulous question to both Hart and Cohle amid their biker-bar and stash-house exploits. The latter protagonist is high and willingly (if without actual CID awareness, let alone permission) undercover among the Iron Crusaders, an East Texan biker gang he once infiltrated that has ties to Reggie Ledoux. He’s urging for cooler heads and an exit plan when the strategy of impersonating officers and ransacking an area housing project’s dope supply invariably goes awry. No such luck. Shots are fired, Cohle scurries for cover and backup with gang member Ginger in tow, and covers are blown in a fashion that would seem absurd if a neighborhood of armed assailants weren’t bearing down.  Read More... //www.vulture.com/2014/02/true-detective-recap-season-1-who-goes-there-biker-gang.html

TRUE DETECTIVE Recap: “Who Goes There”

In its fourth episode,  True Detective  showed a whole new side to itself.  Not only was the rhythm of the episode frantic instead of languid, but both Martin and Rust were in extreme turmoil.  And, for the first time, Rust lied to the police in the present time frame, to coverup his whereabouts in a drug raid that turned, as he suspected, “into Mogadishu.”   True Detective  amped itself up for another hour of mesmerizing and heart-pounding television, the likes of which really haven’t been since — dare I say it?  Breaking Bad .  Hit the jump for why “you are the Michael Jordan of being a son of a bitch.”   Read more at  //collider.com/true-detective-season-1-episode-4-recap/#0Beww2zEreLAVF71.99

True Detective Season 1 “Who Goes There” Review

Previously, on  True Detective , Eli Thompson delivered sermons, Hart and Cohle exchanged ideas on religion and the pair pushed on with their investigation into Dora’s murder, as well as the present day interviews about the murder investigation. Welcome back,  True Detective . As someone who mostly watches the Super Bowl for commercials, I really missed the gritty series from my Sunday night lineup last week. Interestingly, the show returned after the one-week hiatus with an installment that was very different from the first three episodes of the season.

True Detecive Review: An Iron Crusader

Rust Cohle went undercover twice on  True Detective Season 1 Episode 4 . First, he pretended to be Marty's friend. Then, he returned to his old life as fake member of a motorcycle gang called the Iron Crusaders. The former was an example of how Rust cares about one thing and one thing only: the job. He's willing to lie to Marty, giving him hope that his marriage can be saved, just to ensure that his partner remains focused on the task at hand.
