Los Angeles, CA – Viewers of the latest season of “True Detective” are expressing a common disappointment regarding the choice of music for the show’s opening titles.
The fourth installment of the HBO anthology series, titled “True Detective: Night Country,” has received positive reviews for its performances and storytelling. However, fans have taken issue with the selection of Billie Eilish’s song “Bury a Friend” as the opening theme.
Each previous season of “True Detective” has been praised for its choice of title track, but some viewers feel that “Bury a Friend” is overused in other films and TV shows. The song, from Eilish’s 2019 debut album, has been featured in multiple trailers and scores, leading some fans to call for a more original selection for the show’s opening credits.
Some critics argue that the song does not match the tone and atmosphere of the series, and that its widespread use in other media detracts from its impact in “True Detective.” These comments have sparked discussions about the importance of selecting the right music to set the mood for a show and the potential impact on the viewer’s experience.
Despite the mixed reception to the theme song, “True Detective: Night Country” continues to draw in audiences with its suspenseful storyline and strong performances. The show is available for viewing in the US on HBO and in the UK on Sky Atlantic and NOW.
