Another masterpiece from HBO. Its completely different and totally traditional. The spectacular cast lays figuratively and literally fully naked for our indulgence. It takes about five episodes to jell and the first season is only eight episodes. At episode five I was ready to put this season up with the best of The Sopranos, The Wire or Breaking Bad. However by the end it dipped into the more mundane but still must see Parthenon of content. Another series that falls into this silver medal band is Vikings. Its a Canadian production.
I think it would be easy to make a Canadian tale like True Detective out of the Picton Murders. Some people think Picton may have only been doing clean up.
