True Detective : Season 3 Reviews

January 10, 2019
The third season of True Detective plays to the first season's strengths, but it also feels like an admission of defeat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 2, 2019
But despite a tremendous lead performance from Mahershala Ali, it doesn't quite reach the heights of Season 1, either. More than anything, it feels unnecessary, hitting the same self-consciously grim notes we've seen plenty of times before.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
January 14, 2019
It is neither as raw and gripping as the series' rookie season nor as structurally unsound as its second. It is good, not great.
January 2, 2019
Substantial hunks of its plot come off like a store brand version of the original.
January 16, 2019
The towering talent of Ali almost straightens out the third season of True Detective from its ultimately dull centrifugal swirl. Yet,[it's] is overwhelmed by... capricious leaps in time and thinly spread philosophical space
January 15, 2019
True Detective bills itself as something better, but really, it's just more of the same.
January 11, 2019
What ultimately sinks this season is the dull sameness of it all... nearly every scene has the same rhythm and pacing, often centered on two or three people conferring solemnly in hushed voices; the show could be titled Men Mumbling About Crimes.
January 11, 2019
Ali's performance is an example of what the show can be, but the third season as a whole remains as a disappointing reminder of what was.

January 14, 2019
True Detective Season 3 is a little more workmanlike and less baroque, perhaps too eager to prove that it can tell a legible story again.
January 2, 2019
This season's attempt to bring back the old True Detective magic also feels a bit stale.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
January 7, 2019
The new True Detective is faintly pretentious, manageably ridiculous, and dull.
January 10, 2019
I wondered what I would think if neither of the previous seasons had existed, and I realized-I probably wouldn't be thinking about it at all.
January 14, 2019
True Detective falls prey to a slightly milder case of misogyny than afflicted it in season one.
January 13, 2019
While I appreciate Mahershala Ali's solid performance and the technical excellence of this gorgeous production, there is no sense of urgency or connection. Everyone is sleep walking through the case.

It's clear that Pizzolotto still thinks like a novelist... His show struggles to find its sweet spot as a work of television, maybe because it's conceived with a pace and style that is better suited to the page.
January 14, 2019
Yet again "True Detective," after a drawn-out hiatus, capitalizes heavily on atmosphere, artistry and the celebrity aura of its star players, at times focusing more emphatically on this garb than the integrity of its narrative skeleton.
January 23, 2019
Fans who have stuck around will be pleased to find that True Detective season three mostly returns to form.
January 16, 2019
Exploring the grim certainty of battling time, Ali carries the show by subtly pushing against expectations, finding empathy in the murkiest darkness that True Detective has ever explored.
January 15, 2019
Season three marks a return to form for True Detective, even if though it fails to reach the highs of its freshman effort.
January 18, 2019
From a spirit laden community centre to a woodland pedophile campsite to the dark interior of Hays' mind, it's a brooding gem.
