True Detective (Review - S01 Only) : All Hail 'The Great' Nic Pizzolatto

I would like to start with saying 'All hail the great Nic Pizzolatto' for the meritorious effort of creating a distinguished mystery based story on malevolence and obsession. The most astonishing part to know here is that Nic literally wrote the whole script all on his own for the entire Season The show is set in the year 2012 where two contrary but dominated (former) detective partners of Louisiana State Police, Dt. Rustin Cohle (Mathew McConaughey) and Dt. Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) are questioned about the 'Antler' case from their time in the force, back in 1995 where a young girl was killed in a very mysterious and meta-psychotic way.

Rust (McConaughey) is a disturbed pessimistic atheist, haunted by his past, a man without a family, having unfriendly nature, with a sharp resourceful mind, Meanwhile Marty (Harrelson) is a family man, a regular professional type, and people's favorite kind of person, but deep down inside he would tenderly fall for other women, and his ineptness in psychotic knowledge makes him less as compared to his partner, which is why at a point Rust says to him "without me you are nothing" . 

Mathew McConaughey who plays an atheist and Woody Harrelson who plays a Christian in the show, both have completely opposite religious believes in their lives, which was actually hard for both of them for their performance. Mathew had to smoke 49 cigarettes and 9 bears all together for statement shots

McConaughey's performance as Rust is literally outstanding that it gave me Goosebumps most of the time, his expressions with the dialogue delivery makes you feel like whatever he's saying here he's saying it with his true heart, the way he deals with the drug acting it is super-realistic, this is what you call realism, which every actor should have.

The show has some compelling points about the human nature and relations, how people could think about several aspects, it has very interesting message that you can encounter if you go a little deeper inside, which you have to figure out yourself otherwise it wouldn't turn out to be mesmerizing.

The Next thing to add to my 'To-Do list' is 'buy season two of True Detective'

I put this Tv-Show to my Must-Watch Shows List. And I Rate it 9/10
