On the Spoiler Special podcast, Slate critics discuss movies, the occasional TV show, and, once in a blue moon, another podcast, in full, spoiler-filled detail. In this episode, Slate’s TV critic, Willa Paskin, is joined by senior editor Laura Bennett and Slatest editor Ben Mathis-Lilley to discuss the second season of True Detective. Was Season 2’s plot as confusing as it seemed? Could the season have been salvaged? And can True Detective apologist Ben successfully defend it?
Listen to them discuss these and other questions below. You can also check out past Spoiler Specials in our archive, and you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. Note: As the title indicates, each installment contains spoilers galore.
