True Detective discussion thread: Season 1 Finale

The first season of True Detective has come to an end, and based on the finale, I suspect there are going to be some widely differing opinions on how it rates overall and just exactly what it all meant. I'll say that I liked it (a lot) but not in the way I had been expecting. More than anything, it was an interesting two months of television. Even if you feel season one didn't hang together all that well in the end, the show's format (short run, anthology, A-list leads) could lead to even more exciting concepts down the road. I'll count that as a success overall.

One other quick note to get the word count up: Alan Sepinwall conducted a post-finale interview with Nic Pizzolatto that is well worth your time. I'll share some of my thoughts in the comments, but here is an interesting spoiler-free sneak preview of season 2:

"Okay. This is really early, but I'll tell you (it's about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system."

Count me in.

Please be kind and use good grammar.
