finally got around to this. incredibly messy season. spreading the story across three timelines felt unnecessary and the convoluted time jumps between them isn't justified by the mystery which turns out to be shockingly bland. and the whole true-crime documentary shtick turned out to be nothing more than an expository device with no revelations to bring. i remember in her last scene the interviewer mentioned that she was disappointed by hays' contributions, and i'm like join the club. the acting was strong overall, with high marks for ali, ejogo, and especially dorff, but i have to admit whenever ejogo and ali were in frame i was just waiting for the show to get back to true-detective-ing.
best moments: - roland fighting the hicks in the bar - woodard's last stand (he was one of the season's highlights and it was a shame he didn't play a larger role in it) - dorff's emmy reel at the end of episode 5
it's better than the trainwreck that was season 2 but still a farcry from season 1. hopefully whatever pizzolatto comes up with next is a bit more out there and interesting because this season was duller than
