Touch darkness and darkness touches you. HBO presents Season 1 of this searing drama series about two detectives--played by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson--and their epic hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. In 2012, Martin Hart (Harrelson) and 'Rust' Cohle (McConaughey), for reasons not immediately revealed, are interviewed separately by investigators about their most notorious case: the macabre 1995 murder of a prostitute by a possible serial killer with disturbing occult leanings. As they look back on the case, Hart and Cohle's personal backstories and often-strained relationship come into focus, all connected by one thing: their shared obsession to hunt down the killer. The supporting cast includes Michelle Monaghan, Kevin Dunn, Tory Kittles, Michael Potts, Elizabeth Reaser, Shea Whigham, Clark Peters, Jay O. Sanders, Alexandra Daddario and Lili Simmons.

  • The Depths That We May Never Travel To Again

    By AceRothstein1
    I am a firm believer that The Wire is the greatest single television program of all time. I think it’s just that good. True Detective is the closest thing I have seen to The Wire, once again confirming that HBO is an empire that can’t be beaten. Matthew and Woody do spectacular jobs in the series and I’m sad that they won’t be returning next season. The show is addicting, keeps you on the edge of your seat and asks us to ponder our place in the universe. It’s just simply groundbreaking. it changes the way we watch TV. True Detective is art in the highest form.

    "The newspapers are gonna be tough on you. And prison is very, very hard on people who hurt kids. If you get the opportunity, you should kill yourself." I doesn't get any better then Russ !

    This is one of HBO's best drama series and quite frankly the greatest story telling I had the opportunity and privilege to experience. Great writing, great acting, great everything!

    Best show of the last millennium! if you haven't seen this show, do whatever you have to do to see it, watch your friend's account, download it illegally, spy on your neighbor's TV while they're watching it, hell you could take over HBO's headquarters and demand them to play it for you and they would applaud! If you have seen it and have witnessed its TRUE majesty then you need to scream it from your rooftop!
  • Fantastic Show

    By siegling
    I thought The Wire was the best television show — True Detective proved me wrong! Very different story, but great writing and fantastic performances, especially from McConaughey.
  • Terrible marketing

    By greymage
    I love the show and the fact I was able to buy the first 2 episodes in SD, but now itunes will not allow me to buy any more in SD? This is bad enough that I think laws on bait and switch and misrepresentation have been broken here.

    By Graflexdreams
    I love the way this story unfolds in various ways, and layer by layer. The script is great, the acting is great, the mystery is full of twists and turns. And the final villain is very original and unique. Love it!

    You will not be disapointed with Harrelson and McConaughey, these are the perfect roles for them.

  • Truly Just Fine

    By Moschell
    This was my first iTunes tv series purchase. I usually just purchase movies. Matthew M had a character that was a bit annoying most of the time. I felt like I was watching his one of luxury car commercials where he is thinking out loud in some poetic and overly dramatic fashion. That became old and ... silly. And the cigarettes were ridiculous. Woody did a nice job. The dynamic with his family was well written and acted. That felt real. Lots of loose ends as far as the symbolic crime scenes. A backwoods WHITE inbred family who live in filth but are practicing beautifully done Santeria rituals? - And why waste time on the tent revival ministries? And then a quick wrap up (as in how do we end this thing?). I actually enjoyed the cameos by the lesser well known actors who just had tiny story lines. The transitions of time and space worked well as sometimes these sorts of jumping storylines can become frustrating. Not here. Still was worth 15 bucks of my time. Yet I kinda forced myself through it. Episode 4 with the gang stuff was SO crappy and all together unnecessary. I want to buy season 2 but it seems to be getting worse reviews. And that's my jaw jack as I just finished the season tonight.
