Why Netflix would have ruined True Detective
"If HBO released the episodes of True Detective all at once, as Netflix regularly does, this show would get half the attention it currently draws."
The unsung brilliance of the show is not just found in the dialogue between 2012 Cohle and our present day pawns, but in the dialogue between the fans. After every show a new theory rears its confident head. The show is so dynamic that every episode is noteworthy; every episode lends itself to be dissected through a repeat watch, or four. If Netflix had the luxury of hosting and releasing this show, it would have its viewers no doubt, but it would not have drawn a fraction of the attention this phenomenon has seen over the weeks it has aired.
