Nic Pizzalotto the writer of True Detective is an obvious comic book fan. Noticed a couple homages in the final episode… at least I think they were an homage.. One line was directly from the Bendis “Daredevil” series and another line at the end that had more significance to the overall story was straight from Alan Moore’s “Top Ten”
Makes me wanna go back to previous episodes and see if I can find some more, but that was about as satisfying as TV gets for me.
Loved the ending, loved the whole thing. It didn’t tie up loose ends as well as Breaking Bad did (which I also just recently finished watching) but I don’t think that’s what they set out to do, it may have really been all about Cohle and Hart the entire time and their conflicts within. Can’t wait to see what they do with a new cast and story in season 2.
