Boy, howdy, there really isn't anything to smile about in this season of True Detective, eh? Its vision of Southern California is pretty much wall-to-wall darkness. But as the saying goes, it's better to light a candle than curse the darkness — so we lit a candle by throwing a bunch of True Detective footage in a blender. This week's installment of Vulture Remix reimagines the show as a cheesy, buoyant '70s cop show. Specifically, ABC's iconic Starsky and Hutch. Consider it the world we deserve.
