WARNING: The video in this post has NSFW language! But it is pretty funny, if you’re a True Detective fan.
Early in the second season of HBO’s True Detective, Detective Ray Velcoro said “I welcome judgment.” But this probably wasn’t what he meant! YouTube user FlimFlam has created a new parody video in which the stars of True Detective’s first season, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) look upon the second season and despair…before uttering a few choice curse words.
Perhaps the most amusing part of the video is that Marty’s most disgusted reactions are reserved for any time that Vince Vaughn’s character opens his mouth.
Looking back, True Detective Season 1 had a rare alchemy of actors and creative talent behind-the-scenes. The novelty of bringing movie stars McConaughey and Harrelson to television paid off with two fantastic leading performances. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga also delivered eight spellbinding episodes that even challenged perennial Emmy juggernaut, Breaking Bad instead of taking the easy win in the miniseries category.
For the second season, only Pizzolatto remained with True Detective while creating a new story centered on Detective Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), Detective Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams), and California Highway Patrol officer Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) with Vaughn as Frank Semyon. Thus far, the critical and fan reception for the second season has been mixed despite another loaded cast of movie stars.
