The first season of True Detective is well known for engaging with pessimist themes, but the philosophy of pessimism goes beyond just the ramblings of Rust Cohle. It permeates the very fabric of the show - woven into its aesthetics, its references to other works, and even its missteps. Join us in this Wisecrack Edition as we discuss HOW True Detective creates an atmosphere of pessimism.
