Re: True Detective
It's one of the two things (maybe three or four to five or six, but I'm going with two since it's simple).
We're either watching one of the best character studies in TV history, in which case, the whodunit doesn't really matter. The point is take a good look at Rust and Marty and actors ACT.
Or yeah, it's a mystery on top of the one of the best character studies in TV history.
