HBO’s most prestigious show this year was this gambit, which allowed writer Nic Pizzolato and director Cary Joji Fukunaga to remain in control for all eight episodes of this mystery. Matthew McConaughey, at the peak of his powers, is magnificent. Woody Harrelson is just as good, though he has the less flashy role. Even so, this is still only the third-best drama series on TV. That’s what a fertile period we’re in right now.
