HBO’s artful, gritty detective drama True Detective gets mashed with the classic crime drama Law & Order in the parody clip below.

The salacious Louisiana-set images from True Detective get the 1990s-style big-city broadcast show treatment, losing much of the psychedelic morphing of graphics. And the peppy L&O theme song definitely diminishes the haunting effect of The Handsome Family song “Far From Any Road” used in HBO’s opening.

Check out the clip below and let us know what other crime shows would make great True Detective remakes.
