'True Detective' season 3: What critics are saying about HBO's new season - Business Insider - via Thisisinsider

"Despite 'True Detective' season three's attempts to recreate what worked with season one, the show still lacks what made that season so memorable: a clear vision. Pizzolatto's writing was often good, and the performances - particularly McConaughey's - were great. But the secret weapon of that first 'True Detective' was Cary Joji Fukunaga."

Of course, given how much the TV landscape has changed since True Detective last aired an original episode, it might be difficult for the series to duplicate its past Nielsen success. It’s now common for shows on both broadcast and cable to lose 10 or even 20 percent between seasons, even if they’re deemed hits. HBO’s Westworld fell around 16 percent between its freshman and sophomore outings, despite plenty of good buzz and a much shorter hiatus between seasons. And while streamers such as Amazon and Netflix don’t release viewing data, industry insiders frequently speculate those platforms have also been puzzled by data showing declining interest in shows as they move into their second and third seasons. If history is any guide, it’s quite possible the next-day linear ratings for True Detective’s third season launch will show the least-watched premiere for the show, and possibly even its lowest-rated episode. Bloys, however, makes it clear he’s not interested in playing the ratings prognostication game. “You know this old chestnut: It’s not just about ratings for us,” he says. “We sell subscriptions. [True Detective] needs to be a show that our subscribers, or some portion of our subscriber base, is very excited about. I think that it will do that.”

However, what caught most people’s attention was the first look at the upcoming “Watchmen” series that the network is producing with Damon Lindelof at the helm. While there wasn’t much on plot, there were several masked characters in what appears to be a highly-stylized new TV venture, harkening back to Zack Snyder’s 2009 adaptation of the immensely popular Alan Moore graphic novel.

Critics Reviews

    In the third installment of HBO’s anthology series True Detective, creator Nic Pizzolatto opts to play to the first season’s strengths: multiple timelines, occult undertones, partnered detectives shooting the philosophical shit while they drive down the road.

    True Detective season 3 is a vast improvement over season 2, but it never quite matches the strength and memorability of season 1.

    As BoJack’s parody indicates, this mode of “prestige” TV drama characterized by brooding bad boys wreaking awesome havoc while the women around them suffer has grown stale.
