HBO's domination in the drama genre began in the late 1990s with prison series Oz and continued with fan-favorite mafia show The Sopranos. The 2000s brought cult shows like Carnivale and Deadwood - both of which were canceled too soon - as well as long-running popular HBO dramas The WireBig Love, and True Blood. More recently, fantasy series Game of Thrones has captured audiences all over the world, and the crime drama show True Detective (2014) became almost an overnight classic.
