Creators: Nic Pizzolatto
Cast: Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams
Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell) is detective who is dealing with the after effects of the long ago rape of his ex-wife, a rape which may or may not have resulted in the conception of a little boy Ray has always claimed as his own, but for whom he now needs to fight to gain custody or even visitation rights.
Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams) is a Ventura County Sheriff Sergeant who also has some family dysfunctions, including a sister who is working in the porn industry and her father in some kind of religious cult. Motorcycle cop Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) is the third leg , a stand up guy who is dealing with a perhaps hard past as a veteran and does not seems to shake it off his shoulder.
Ray has a history with Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), a former criminal who has been attempting to go straight, Yeah that will be the day. When Frank’s partner, Vinci City Manager Ben Caspere, turns up dead (and mutilated), the project is threatened while the three different police converge on various point of the murder investigation surrounding Caspere.
I think there is a lot of bullshit going on where some people had is that it is not connected to season one , let’s say like Fargo or American Horror story.Plus the story telling did pan out, but to me it is still good, ok not as good as the first one, fine but the second season works well here. The one problem is that the character of Vince Vanghn did not have too much great dialogue might of you might even considered the series a little slow. I found it watchable but it needed a little more detective work other that it is fine. Will there be a season 3 well they are trying to get a great script for the third season. God knows when this will be. I hope they do.
