'True Detective' (HBO)

Premieres 9 p.m. ET Sunday, Jan. 12 - Television is awash in gruesome crime shows, but what makes "True Detective" so interesting -- beyond its two lead actors, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson -- is its structure. Though there's plenty of baroque staging of crime scenes, the show focuses more on what a particular case, and the demands of their jobs in general, do to these two men over the course of 18 years.
