Emily Nussbaum: The Shallowness of “True Detective”
The backlash begins? Valid point, although I’m not sure the show can be discounted for having too few female characters, or even for the “resentful wife” character. (In this the golden age of TV the main character is the Narcissistic Antihero, and the Resentful Wife follows closely behind with an eye-roll and a harried sigh.) The crisis of masculinity seems to me a theme of the show.
