True Detective’s Awkward Detective Returns


Let’s be honest: regardless of how you feel about season two of True Detective, there is a lot in there that can be poked fun at. Fortunately we have a new season of Awkward Detective. Awkward Detective, the fan created gif series, has returned to insert inappropriately awkward dialogue into True Detective. The first season got the same treatment, so it’s only fair for season two to get a piece as well.

To be fair, this series doesn’t really make fun of True Detective. There’s so much out of whack dialogue in season two, however, that’s it’s almost a shame that it doesn’t. We’ll just have to sit tight and wait for another fan to come along and take care of that. Until then, Awkward Detective is a fine way to pass the time.

In case you don’t keep up to date on the internet shenanigans of True Detective fans, Awkward Detective is a short series of clips taken from the series with dialogue swapped out. It can be hit or miss, but when it hits it highlights the overly serious tone and adds a welcome surreal element. The short series will presumably run through the entire season, but may not be eight episodes long.

The second episode can be found right here. In case you were curious, it’s not necessary to watch any of these in order. Having seen the season, however, would likely increase your enjoyment. You can follow along regularly over at Reddit’s True Detective community.
