This Week in True Detective: 2015 Emmy Edition (Week of 7/13/2015)


This Week in True Detective is a feature that aims to bring you the best True Detective happenings of the week. This could include breaking news, popular articles, or anything else that people found interesting or may have missed.

This week in True Detective is a day late, but still perfectly edible. Outside of talking about the best episode of True Detective season two so far, not all that much went on over the past week. We welcomed a new writer, Jordan Belcher, who contribute two wild editorials this week. The 2015 Emmy nominations also came out this week, so it’s not as if there wasn’t plenty to talk about.
