This Week in True Detective: Post Emmys Edition


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.

The 2015 Emmy awards were last weekend, and True Detective wasn’t in attendance. True Detective’s time will come in 2016, but the Andy Sandberg  hosted show did once again prove that it’s in vogue to hate on season two. We also saw an interesting new interview with Lera Lynn, and took a small look at how to make True Detective better in the future.

First up, let’s talk Emmys. Sandberg roasted True Detective pretty good last Sunday, and that became the main focus of the week. Season two is low-hanging fruit at this point, and not all of Sandberg’s jabs really connected. When it was all said and done, however, The Huffington Post fed on all the negative vibes, creating the greatest/worst True Detective hate-piece we’ve seen so far.

The producers of True Detective talked about an upcoming adaptation of Catch-22, which will be a mini-series. The project is in very early development, so there isn’t all that much to say about it. It’s not clear yet if it will be on HBO or some other network.  Lera Lynn also gave another interview, this time talking about Roseanne Cash and how it was to actually be on True Detective.

We took at look at what would be best for True Detective season three, and quickly came to the conclusion that Nic Pizzolatto needs some more eyes on his work. Another way to make season three work would be to cut down the main cast from season two, as Pizzolatto has had an issue with juggling multiple storylines and characters.

Finally, to end on a positive note, a seriously hard-working fan put together a new Sesame Street and True Detective mashup. It’s the best use of noir puppets that we’ve ever seen.

That’s all there is for This Week in True Detective. If you’ve created any True Detective art that you’ve been itching to show off, let us know on Facebook or Twitter so that we can show it to the world.

Next: Sesame Street and True Detective ride again.
