Best TV Cinematography

These are recent shows that have been nominated for two or more Emmy Awards for outstanding cinematography, with a few additional standouts thrown in to boot.

Shows Like Nikita: Smash Hit Hitmen and Hitwomen Shows

Contracts are usually dull affairs, but not when they involve killing x person for y amount of money, as they do in these hitwoman and hitman themed series.

Shows Like The Shield: Good Cop, Crooked Cop

Some of these cops live to protect and serve--themselves. Thank God for the upright few who risk their jobs to bring about justice.

Shows like The Wire: Gritty Crime Shows

These series feature crooked cops and ruthless criminals who mix it up on the garbage-strewn streets of big cities. Pioneering shows like NYPD Blue and the Shield focused on cops in US cities, but the best of the current batch are anchored in the lives of gang members on the mean streets of Birmingham, Rome, Paris and Dublin.

Shows like The Punisher: Vigilante Justice Shows

These shows detail men and women who take the law into their own hands -- for better or for worse.

TV Series Inspired by Twin Peaks

These shows build on elements of Twin Peaks--evil bubbling underneath an apparently wholesome small town, detective work, surrealism, some horror, and undertones of the supernatural--all with a nod to David Lynch's distinctive style.

Shows like True Detective: Neo Noir TV

With these neo-noir series you can expect conflicted, world-weary antiheroes, grisly crimes, corrupt cops and politicians, and some dark humor to boot; just make sure you turn the brightness all the way up on your TV.

Shows like The Killing: Inspired by Nordic Noir

If you love Scandinavian crime thrillers, but don't like subtitles (or speak Danish, Swedish, Norwegian) you'll enjoy this list of English language detective series inspired by Nordic Noir--lots of ominous music, claustrophobic towns, and missing children.
