Now the three forensic psychiatrists are taking their crusade for accurate psychological portrayals to Wonder Con this weekend - but in a fun way, as they lead comic fans through an entertaining "forensic profiling" panel about serial killers in the Batman universe. However, they're using the opportunity to emphasize that serial killers do not suffer from psychotic disorders, and the mentally ill are not inherently violent.
Michelle Monaghan barely appeared in the show's finale. Would that it had not. Like almost all the supporting characters on this show, the women were just sketches—occasionally naked ones—compared to our full-bodied detectives.
No TV show has an obligation to be everything to everyone. True Detective is a series I admired and enjoyed, and its treatment of women is not even the thing that irked me most about the finale, which left a number of niggling questions unanswered and finished on a "let there be light" riff.
When it comes to prestige TV, there has yet to be a downside to out-bro-ing yourself. In eight short weeks, True Detective has been granted greatest-show-on-television status on an extremely accelerated schedule.
McConaughey and Harrelson have been outstanding, their characters indelible. It has been enticingly plotted, bread crumbs of Carcosa thick on the ground.
And yet, there are other shows out there that traverse much of the same territory as True Detective— Top of the LakeThe AmericansBroadchurchThe Fallto name a few—and none of them have gotten the frenzied attention of True Detective.
None of those shows are on HBO. None of them feature movie stars. None of them seem explicitly built to appeal to Reddit users.
But also—not unrelatedly—they are about women. Top Comment Well, you can't really say that black people were represented very well in that show. Two decent characters that apparently can't figure anything out and a ton of gang bangers. How about religious people?
The number is completely laughable except that it made me want to cry. Premium cable dramas, the prestige category par excellence, are shows created by men that are largely about men, the rare exceptions—Buffy, Battlestar Galactica, and Homeland—only proving the rule.
True Detective slots into the great drama conversation because it, too, is a great-looking, beautifully acted show that expands upon genre pleasures with very heady themes. But it also takes the machismo even further.
The antihero may be played outbut he is an indictment of a certain kind of masculinity. We are drawn to Walter White and Tony Soprano and Frank Underwood for that matter even though we know we should be disgusted by them.
Antihero shows are an enactment of unthinking hero worship, one that implicates its audience. In the visual language of the finale, Rust is basically Jesus Christ.
True Detective is not an interrogation of masculinity, it is a celebration of one, with none of the squishy girl stuff getting in the way. Obviously, I like True Detective. The series has a lady problem, yes, but it is also a bro bonanza.Typing your keyword for example Flower Impressionist Depiction of a Field Paint with Blooms Tranquil Concept Print Non-Slip Plush Bath Rug by East Urban Home into Google search and searching for promotion or special ph-vs.comg for discount code or "deal from the day" might help.
