31 BUDDY-COP CLICHES ON TRUE DETECTIVE
I really liked True Detective
, and by the end of last night's wildly entertaining (and fucking terrifying) season finale, it became clear that the show is, at heart, your standard buddy-cop movie. It just happened to be brilliantly crafted, impeccably acted, stretched out to eight hours, and riddled with lots of Cormac McCarthy-style manly manspeak. Just how many buddy-cop clichés does the show hit? I counted.
