A dark, intense drama led by two of Hollywood's most acclaimed actors, helmed by an arthouse fave director, "True Detective" is one of our most anticipated projects for 2014 no matter what size of screen it's being shown on. And in the cold grip of winter, there might be no better place than your couch to tune in to what promises to be a pretty charged piece of entertainment.

Boardwalk Empire, Season 4, Farewell Daddy
“After today I’m not making plans,” Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) says on the phone. If only he really knew how true that might be. He’s evidently retiring and telling his Florida business partner and occasional lover Sally Wheat (Patricia Arquette) that after he wraps up loose ends he’s moving down South to Cuba, taking her with him. It’s understandable—the New Jersey mobster’s become hip to the fact that something fishy is going on with his brother Eli (Shea Whigham) and that it probably involves a maybe-not-so-crooked FBI Agent Knox (Brian Geraghty), which can’t be any good.

Preview: HBO's Medical Comedy 'Getting On' Delivers A Healthy Dose Of Humor & Heart

The patience, sanity, selflessness and complete lack of vanity required to be a nurse is something that can't be stressed enough. And while medical dramas have shown medical staff to be (personally and emotionally complicated) life saving heroes, the medical sitcom is surprisingly still fairly fresh creative territory (the last one of note was "Scrubs," the Zach Braff starring show that usually placed wackiness and hijinks in the foreground). Perhaps it's because getting the recipe right of blending the life and death reality of the job with comedic elements is a balance that's difficult to achieve, but congratulations to the folks behind "Getting On" because in the first half of the six-episode season sent to press, they've accomplished the feat.

Girls Lena Dunham Zosia Mamet Jemima Kirke Allison Williams
Hugely successful and perhaps equally controversial, there's no denying that Lena Dunham's "Girls" is nothing short of a phenomenon. And the creator/writer/producer/star has been striking while the iron is red hot, set to deliver the third season in less than three years in January. And a new teaser has landed showing off the first actual footage from the new season.

For a while there, seeing Bill Murray in a movie was like spotting a rare animal. Tales of his being difficult to reach and non-committal even when taking film roles were the stuff of legend, but it seems these days he just really wants to work. With roles already in three 2014 films — "Monuments Men," "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "St. Vincent De Van Nuys" — and currently shooting Cameron Crowe's next effort, Murray has already signed up for his next gig.

The Great Gatsby
It might seem like it was ages ago, but it's only been a few months since Baz Luhrmann's 3D, glitter encrusted "The Great Gatsby" did the Charleston in theaters across the country. And while reviews may have been mixed and the final result certainly spotty (we discussed The 5 Most Ridiculous Things About 'The Great Gatsby'), audiences seemed to love it, with the final tally north of $340 million worldwide. Not bad at all. And if you needed a little more Fitzgerald in your life, some good news is on the horizon.

It may have taken Guillermo Del Toro five years between "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" and this summer's "Pacific Rim," but the filmmaker isn't wasting a hot second as he heads in 2014. He'll kick off the year shooting "Crimson Peak" and by time the summer arrives he'll be on the small screen too.

No, you suddenly haven't time-traveled back to 2012. Steve McQueen's acclaimed "12 Years Of A Slave" is bowling over critics and brutalizing audiences so it is hardly a shock that last year's slavery flick, the decidedly more pulpy "Django Unchained," would be brought back into the conversation. Quentin Tarantino's movie wasn't exactly historically accurate, but he made clear at the time his disdain for what is one of the most celebrated depictions on slavery in any media, the 1970s PBS mini-series "Roots."

Last night, Kenny Powers took the mound one last time (so to speak) as "Eastbound & Down" delivered its very last episode, right down the middle of the plate.

As Arcade Fire dances with mariachi bands and Lady Gaga continues to position herself as an artist and icon, it's often easy to forget that in many parts of the world, the mere act of playing music can be a form of rebellion, a true act of defiance that can put lives in danger. But one upcoming series will explore the power of music in places where war wages and oppressive regimes attempt to keep the voices of artists suppressed.
