* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' went for this in a ''big'' way in Season 2, with absolutely stunning visages and creative cinematography to show off the glories of the Icelandic landscape. Notable also in that the plot for those scenes was rather basic and setting up for the next season (mostly just walking from place to place) which really did not need to be so stunning, but, damn it was cool. The series as a whole is known for its often breathtaking Scenery Porn and beautiful establishing shots of locations, both real and computer-enhanced. Even its ''TitleSequence'' fits under this.

* Any ScienceFiction show, when they leave their station/ship/plot device. And sometimes when they're still on it.
** It wasn't always like that. Early SF shows often had too low a special effects budget to create any beautiful scenery.

** Oddly averted in "Planet of the Dead", where the location shooting in Dubai was heavily hyped, but apart from the area directly around the bus the vista is mostly CGI of an infinite desert (and not particularly good CGI either). WebVideo/DiamandaHagan questioned in her review of the episode how a gay showrunner wanted to shoot in a country where gay people still have the death penalty, and how there still wasn't any point to it.

* The inside of the House in ''Series/BeyondTheWalls'' is ''hauntingly'' beautiful and the cinematography takes care to make it seem at once claustrophobic and vast in scale.
