"True Detective: Night Country" has become the most popular season in anthology history

The fourth chapter managed to break the record of the first part.
HBO

The fourth installment of the True Detective crime anthology, subtitled "Night Country", has become the most-watched season in the series' history. The new chapter, starring Jodie Foster and Kali Reis, averaged 12.7 million viewers across all platforms.

The fourth season surpassed the first chapter of the show starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, which aired a decade ago. Back then, the series drew about 11.9 million viewers.

Despite the high ratings, viewers seem to be dissatisfied with the new season: it received only 64% on Rotten Tomatoes. "Night Country" writer and director Issa López believes it's due to the "review bombing" that fans of the first season did.

"Night Country" is about detectives Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, who investigate the mysterious disappearance of workers at an Arctic research station in Alaska. To get to the truth, the investigators will have to deal with their own secrets buried under the eternal ice.

Yeah, and it became the most popular season of the anthology only due to the reputation of the first three

@czepczyk: At least 5 of my female teachers said something like "teacher in class" and never called themselves "teacher". And in the regulatory documents it is always written "teacher". So this is a bad example to defend your position on this issue.

@max_roose: Bulgakov laughed in a Dog's Heart from this Soviet nonsense. In the film, too, the episode when the professor corrects the Soviet head to the head is saved. You can look at it, because I don't think you can handle a book with such knowledge.

I haven't watched season 4 yet, but the fact that the review bombing is there is 100%. Pizzolatto burned down on Twitter (then it was posted on reddit) and the minions came without their own opinion and fucked up the rating.

@OneFriday: Judging by the comments for this season at all venues, people are just waiting for the movement to begin there. In the meantime, they write about the abundance of mysticism, the absence of steam from the mouth, snow that goes on all the time and does not fall asleep, and ice that cracks from one hole. In Alaska.
I'll wait until the whole season is out. I can't wait for the release of new episodes)

Only there were mice there - Mice cried, stabbed, but still continued to eat cactus. Hedgehogs appeared already in the modern generation when someone somewhere heard something wrong, remembered it wrong and went off. Hedgehogs don't actually eat cacti, unlike mice. Therefore, the modern misinterpretation sounds very stupid.

"Night Country tells about detectives Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro" - according to the latest trends on mayshow, why is it not written "detective stories"? A typo or discrimination?

The problem here is that the new season has not decided what it wants to be. On the one hand, he could be an action-packed detective in the ice, a la fortetude, but he does not dare. I could have been a full-fledged receiver of the first two seasons (I don't consider the third one; it's complete nonsense), but the creators are not the same, and that magic no longer works. And as a result, the season is about nothing: of the 5 episodes that have been released so far, 10% of the time is devoted to the main plot, the remaining time was divided in half between a parody of the first seasons, such as brainstorming, country tracks with guitar, lengthy dialogues in the car; and the second half of this agenda.
Yes, there's a summons again. It seems that they have already begun to get tired of it, perhaps everything will change soon, but so far everything is as it is: problems of the indigenous population, problems of women, worker bullying, etc.
The result was worse than it could have been, but better than the previous season. It does not compare with the first ones

I'm slowly reviewing the previous ones, and I'll start this one a couple of days before the release of the last episode). But the first season is just at an unattainable height, and the new one has such reviews that sometimes it is weaker than the third. And views are not the most objective indicator. It's too early to judge at all, you need to see the big picture).

Because a series of the level of "Fortitude" was at one time a good, but in principle, a passing series of one evening, which is nice to watch and forget. There were a lot of them at the time. Now they are trying to attract the level of Fortitude to a Real detective)

A beautiful picture, an unusual location, a mystery, I watch every episode as soon as it comes out, it's still somehow addictive, probably due to the combination of the above. But the fact that half the season is over and nothing is happening is yes)) in the last episode, at the moment, the movements have only begun

In general, it seems to me that Night Country should have been released as a mini-series "From the creators of True Detective." It would have been watched by plus or minus the same number of people, but at the same time, there would have been fewer complaints about the continuation of the franchise.

A purely subjective opinion, but the season is boring, and comparing it with the first brilliant season is blasphemy.

Better than the third and somewhere on the level of the second. I mean, okay. The first season is clearly the best and I do not expect that they will shoot something at the level someday. It's like Fargo. The first season is straight top. The rest is OK, but much worse. The fourth was garbage, like TD's third. The fifth season seemed at first to be of the level of the first, but in the end it was not.

It pleases me, I really liked 4 and I'm looking forward to the denouement))And I like that there is a parallel with 1. It's cool..and I don't understand many people who write nasty things about this season, damn it, I don't like it. Don't look..Maybe in no way compared to 1, but it's still very exciting, interesting, there are riddles, it's a pity that there are only so few episodes....and for the sake of just 6 episodes, we waited 4 years...

@Geronimoooo: "don't like don't look" it would work if it were an independent project, though there would not be such a number of views and records either. And since this is part of the franchise, you will have to sell the whole haight. Maybe without the prefix "True Detective" and would have become a normal series, but alas, another failure.

The whole season was very atmospheric, but the ending was frankly leaked. They could not explain everything in an interesting way, and some questions were not explained at all. Mysticism was generally left without any explanation, like let the viewer figure out for himself what it was. Well, such a thing.

For me, the fourth season is the weakest. There were so many prerequisites for an interesting development, but in the end a lot of mysticism came out, which they did not explain.
