HBO's 'True Detective' is getting weirder, and we are on it: intro to the series and weekly recaps at Boing Boing


"What separates HBO's crime drama True Detective from other series that obsessively catalogue dead female bodies or attempt to find the human side of serial killers is the show's ambition in style and scope," writes our reviewer Kevin McFarland.

We have an introduction to the series here, for those new to the show.

And weekly recaps of episodes 4 (Who Goes There), and last night's 5 (The Secret Fate of All Life) in Season One are all here. Join the lively discussions in our BBS, too.

Below, the show's theme song, "Far from Any Road," by The Handsome Family.
