 true-detective-season-2...move straight onto Season 2. Admittedly, True Detective’s second season  featuring a moody Colin Farrell and a  brooding Rachel Mcadams has received less than favourable reviews but it’s still mindless fun and you can laugh along with the world at bad lines of dialogue, like “Never do anything out of hunger. Not even eating”.ShowcaseSeptember 9 2015
