The finale of True Detective certainly has the intertubes abuzz. Most thought it bland and anti-climatic. I am not one of those people. Here are the best commentaries on the show including a very fine piece on the philosophy that was quite apparent throughout the show here. If you only read one piece I would suggest this one from Jacob Mikanowski in the L.A. Review of Books that touches each element of the show from the gorgeous and haunting cinematography of Adam Arkapaw to the music of T Bone Burnett in the opening credits.
