Recap: True Detective Season Two Finale @Foxtel @ShowcaseAUS @NikoleGunn

The body count is high, but the questions are finally in the season two finale of True Detective. But WHO actually killed Ben Caspere is almost incidental and, to a degree, irrelevant to the way the story is played out.

Recap: True Detective S02E07 Black Maps and Motel Rooms @NikoleGunn @Foxtel

As True Detective proved in season one, this is a show that really can’t be pigeon holed or second-guessed. Sure, it got off to a very slow start and had almost stagnated by episode three.  But things have steadily improved after it gave up the Twin Peaks pretence.

Recap: True Detective S02E04 Down Will Come @Foxtel @NikoleGunn @ShowcaseAus

Recap: #TrueDetective S02 E03 Maybe Tomorrow by @NikoleGunn @Foxtel @ShowcaseAus

The final minutes of episode 2 gave us a much-needed adrenaline and delivered a cliffhanger, when Ray was gunned down by a man wearing a creepy as crow mask.  Had Game of Thrones rubbed off on its HBO stable mate? Had True Detective killed off a major character’?

Recap: Game Of Thrones S05E09 The Dance of Dragons

Expectation can be a tough master, especially on a show like Game of Thrones.  The fans have come to expect ‘big’ things as we near the end of the season.

Recap: Game Of Thrones S05E05 Kill The Boy

Heads up everyone.  There will be violence and nudity in Episode 5.  Just in case you were wondering.  But really the pre-show warnings should include ‘this episode contains scenes of emotional torture and dragons'.
