时下最流行新美剧:《真探》

Duo on hunt for truth

I’m usually skeptical whenever I read such words from critics as “the best” or “the greatest”. So, I didn’t quite buy it when True Detective, HBO’s crime drama series, was described as “the finest show on television at the moment”.
每当看到影视评论中蹦出“最佳”、“最了不起”等字眼时,我总是保留怀疑态度。因此,当HBO电视网推出的犯罪题材剧集《真探》被评为“时下最好看剧集”时,我并不买账。

But after watching the first season’s eight episodes, which ended on March 9, I was convinced to let go of my stereotype, at least a little.
随着3月9日第一季的落幕,看过全八集电视剧的我确实应该摒弃成见了,至少收敛一点。

If you haven’t seen the drama yet, it stars Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games) as a pair of Louisiana detectives investigating a disturbing ritualistic murder over the course of 17 years, from 1995 to 2012.
如果你还没有看过该剧,那么我简单剧透一下。在该剧中,奥斯卡影帝马修•麦康纳和《饥饿游戏》男星伍迪•哈里森扮演了一对来自路易斯安那州的警探拍档,他们要在一宗涉及到宗教的连环杀人案中找出真凶,该案横跨了近17年(1995年—2012年),十分棘手。。

True Detective is a great TV show, but it’s not as intense as House of Cards, as audacious as Breaking Bad, or as cultural as Mad Men. But it still stands out as a compelling series for a number of reasons: a mesmerizing performance by McConaughey and Harrelson, an intricate structure and witty dialogue by writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto, big-screen-worthy direction by Cary Joji Fukunaga, and an anthology format that has the potential to help change the way television is made.
《真探》确实是部精彩的剧集,虽然它不像《纸牌屋》那般紧张激烈、也不像《绝命毒师》那般标新立异,更没有《广告狂人》那样的文化标签,但是它仍然脱颖而出。该剧走红的原因有很多:麦康纳和哈里森的精湛演技;制片兼编剧尼克•皮佐拉托打造出的错综复杂的剧情以及机智诙谐的对白;导演凯瑞•福永镜头中那些堪比大银幕的场景以及有可能引发电视剧制作方式变革的“选集”方式。(译者注:《真探》在形式上区别于传统美剧,其引用了欧洲电视制作模式中的“选集”方式,即在统一概念的引导下,每一季各自独立,自成一体。)


The pairing of detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) as the cynical genius and Martin Hart (Harrelson) as the “ordinary” observer is not a new idea, of course. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are the classic prototypes. Nonetheless, the paring of Cohle and Hart is sublime, mostly because the show has no interest in identifying the killer, but rather digs around the psyches of Cohle and Hart. So it’s beyond a procedural investigation series.
显然,愤世嫉俗的天才侦探罗斯特•科赫利(麦康纳饰)与“俗人一个”的探员马丁•哈特(哈里森饰),这样的组合当然毫无新奇可言。毕竟夏洛克•福尔摩斯和约翰•华生这对搭档早已珠玉在前。不过话虽如此,科赫利和哈特的组合还是可圈可点的,主要因为该剧并未着力刻画追凶本身,而更多的是去剖析他们两人的心理。因此该剧并不简单地只是一部普通侦探剧而已。

Yet the thing I like most about the show is its consistent tone and style. Instead of different committees (like most TV series), the entire first season was written by Pizzolatto and directed by Fukunaga. As a result, watching all eight episodes feels more like an eight-hour movie.
而我最喜欢的一点是该剧始终如一的基调和风格。与大多数剧集班底常新不同,整个第一季的剧本都是出自皮佐拉托之手,导演也一直是福永。因此,追八集电视剧更像是在看一部长达8小时的电影一样。

True Detective’s anthology format means the next season will feature a different cast of characters and a new story, like FX’s American Horror Story. While I will surely miss the pairing of McConaughey and Harrelson, it’s a relief to know that Pizzolatto isn’t forced to stretch out a story past its expiry date.
《真探》的“选集”方式意味着下一季将会有不同的演出阵容和剧情,就像FX剧集《美国恐怖故事》一样。虽然我会十分想念麦康纳和哈里森的组合,但令人欣慰的是编剧皮佐拉托不会被迫拖延剧情发展,让它变了味儿。

Where will the future seasons take us? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to find out.
接下来几季的走向如何?尽管一无所知,但我已迫不及待地想要一探究竟。
