4. 'Charlie Work' (Season 10, Episode 4)
Proving that serious cable dramas like True Detective don't have a monopoly on flashy camera tricks, this late-season episode contains a roughly 10-minute stretch made to look like one continuous shot, following Paddy's designated peon as he scrambles to get the bar ready for a surprise health inspection. (The sequence also recalls Oscar nominee Birdman, right down to the pounding drums on the soundtrack; the similarities are reportedly a coincidence.) On a technical level, it's a marvel, as well as a creative look at the genuine odd jobs that Charlie does behind the scenes to protect his friends' livelihoods — from helping out Frank after he flushes a shoe down the toilet to making sure there's enough carbon monoxide leakage in the basement to kill all the rats.
