True Detective Season 3 is… pretty slow for the first three episodes. I’m not really all that compelled to keep watching. In fact, I’m not exactly sure what the point exactly is at this part of the story.
Reminds me a bit of IN THE ELECTRIC MIST, an adaptation of one of James Lee Burke’s Dave Robicheaux mystery novels. It may be the only time Burke’s been adapted, I believe, and the film is a mess with a few good actors trying to pull it out of the swamp. True Detective has a lot more mood and style, but way the mystery and story never quite seem clear or cohesive is very similar.
