True Detective, Matthew McConaughey as Rust Cohle
"True Detective" - HBO reinvents American Horror Story's approach to the 'season.' Where a series used to be fated to a plot-squeezing suffocation after x seasons, Nic Pizzolatto, writer and creator of True Detective, has found the creative emancipation of the Glee-creators' horror series gimmick: a focus on the continuity in genre/style, not plot line, among seasons. Pizzolatto took this further by writing a better story, adding a gritty, southern spirituality, and casting big talent.
