True Detective

A show with a truly captivating story and cinematic style, True Detective, which aired in 2014 for HBO, blew me out of the water.

The show is just as much about the relationship of the two detectives as it is wrapped around the case. The philosophical narration of Chole's character gives an interesting dialogue in this thought provoking series.

True detective contains some of the most elaborate cinematography for a television show, which is able to creatively portray the setting of Louisiana. This is one of the first times such a long take might have even been considered for TV. At over 6 minutes, this intense long take is one you should check out:
