True Crossovers

  1. So many powerful lines... Hard to create a believable character who is so deeply nihilistic, and articulate, and self-aware, who continues to go on living. A huge reason it works is because of McConaughey.

  2. I hesitate to compare directly but there’s definitely a lot of crossover material going on between these. True Detective S1 is, like TP, some of my favorite all time television.

  3. The dream Cohle is referring to is the illusion of the ego/self, that to wake up from you must confront the true nature of reality (the monster.) Which is one way to describe Coop's journey in Twin Peaks (locked room = Black Lodge.) This stuff is big in Eastern spirituality and given Lynch's affinity for that, I think both are drawing the from the same idea.

  4. It's been a bit since I've watched True Detective but I remember there were several Twin Peaks parallels or influences. I need to give it a rewatch. Season 2 was trash can juice and Season 3 was good, but Season 1 is what made folks excited for those later seasons. Excellent stuff.

  5. Season 1 was so damn good. Intriguing, disturbing, profound, and moving. It also has the line that I remember (and use myself) regularly: “If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of divine reward, then brother, that person is a piece of shit.”

  6. How can there be a crossover between True Detective and Twin Peaks? There is nothing supernatural at work in TD, while there is in TP. How can that be reconciled?

  7. Perhaps there's also nothing supernatural in Twin Peaks. Or both have elements. Depends on how you look at it. The ending of TD certainly at least suggests something supernatural.
