If I'm right, then Nic Pizzolatto took a serious -- and brilliant -- artistic gamble in the narrative arc of his screenplay, a wager calculated on a deep dark propensity in the American psyche. And, if I'm right, like Ruston Cohle, I'll "close the loop" on that speculation when it's over.

In this week's episode, "Who Goes There," Rust and Marty begin the manhunt for their lead suspect, Reggie Ledoux. I'm beginning to think the writers get a kick out of raising anticipation, and then giving us long, boring sequences of the nitty-gritty of detective work.
