When True Detective was first announced, many dismissed it as yet another police procedural, albeit with a much more impressive cast than most. However, even those who reacted positively to the premise of the series could never have predicted just how huge of a success and phenomenon True Detective would be.

The first season came to a close in the US on Sunday night, and only three instalments have aired in the UK so far. Regardless of where you live, that means there’s plenty of time to catch up! And don’t worry,  we don’t reveal any major spoilers here, so True Detective’s big mystery will remain unsolved for you to discover!

10. The Soundtrack

True Detective Theme

As soon as True Detective kicked off with The Handsome Family’s “Far From Any Road” during its superb opening credits, viewers realised that this would be a series with a killer soundtrack. The first episode emphasised that with music from the likes of Bob Dylan and The Black Angels, while the rest of the season would feature everyone from Johnny Horton and Wu-Tang Clan to The Kinks. Throw in the work of composer T-Bone Burnett and you’re left with one of the most unique and best sounding shows on television. If you fancy reliving all of these great tracks, then The Playlist have compiled them all right here. Enjoy!
