I must be as mad as Reggie Ledoux for not watching this again sooner…

Tom Harris – October 2016

TRUE DETECTIVE SEASON ONE:

Insanely brilliant writing by Nic Pizzolatto, with the two leads McConaughey & Harrelson acting their proverbial socks off against the eerie, scene-stealing Bayou backdrop.

With a setting as dark and brooding as its writing and cast, this crime anthology series spans 17 years as ‘True Detectives’ Hart & Cohle wade through the murk and the filth of their own lives and others to track down an elusive predator known only in intermittent whispers as ‘The Yellow King.’

From the moment the titles roll, and the gloriously atmospheric ‘Far From Any Road’ by The Handsome Family plays you in, you will be as hooked as a Mississippi Rusty Crayfish.

I must be as mad as Reggie Ledoux for not watching this again sooner…

When the last light warms the rocks

And the rattlesnakes unfold

Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

 The Handsome Family – ‘Far From Any Road’ from the album – ‘Singing Bones’

You can catch HBO’s remarkable True Detective Season One on SkyGo or head over to Amazon Prime.
