By now, just about everyone has taken a shot at the current season of “True Detective.” It’s too dense, too grim, too earnest, too masculine. Its creator is too obsessed with sexual weirdness. It’s a rip-off of James Ellroy’s novels. And, as we keep hearing, it’s not as good as the bayou-set Season 1. There’s no consensus — one IndieWire article wonders ”Why No One Can Agree on Anything About ‘True Detective’ Season 2″– but critics and civilians alike started, a few weeks ago, to take real pleasure in their dissing of Nic Pizzolatto’s show. There’s even a whole online discussion of why people “hate-watch” the show, and whether it makes sense, and what they might view instead; these folks don’t agree either, but the hatred of this California-set season is taken for granted.
Ever since Jon Snow got the Julius Caesar treatment on the “Game of Thrones” season finale, there has been plenty of speculation that the Lord Commander isn’t actually gone for good. Rumors of Jon Snow’s resurrection has been fueled by the fact that his death makes almost no sense narratively (not to mention Melisandre’s conveniently timed arrival at Castle Black), as well as plenty of fan sightings of a long-haired Kit Harington on a plane to Belfast, where the show is shooting right now.
