Shows like Homeland: Best Showtime Shows

Over 500 scripted TV series were produced in the US in 2019, but quantity does not guarantee high quality. Showtime, like HBO, has consistently produced outstanding television for years. This list rounds up some of the network's greatest hits (and a few misses).

Shows like NCIS: The Police Procedural Parade

The list of police procedurals out there can seem endless, but if you're feeling overwhelmed just think of all the police officers who not only have to solve these crimes, but fill out the paperwork as well.

Best Crime TV

A (police) round-up of some of the highest rated, award-winning, most popular, and most influential crime shows--crime doesn't pay except for streaming services.

Red State Crime

If you're looking for gritty cops in the big city, keep looking. These crime shows are set in rural America--the Ozarks, Appalachia, or Amish country.

Shows like Fargo: Small town Good vs. Evil

Good and evil don't only clash at an epic scale: in these shows they battle it out in the more intimate arena of small-towns, as well as within the human heart.

Shows like This is Us: Best Family Dramas

Series that place intergenerational family dynamics at the center of the drama. Not all of these dramas are "family friendly"-i.e., you wouldn't want young kids watching the Sopranos or Succession.

Shows like Twin Peaks: Best of Noir Detective TV

Great detective shows served black, with all the grisly murders, investigators with troubled pasts and uncertain futures, and a lot of P.I.s named Jack.

Best Drama TV

Since the Sorpranos ushered in the Golden Age of television in 1999, networks and streaming services have launched thousands of English language drama series--this list rounds up the crème of the crop that stand out in terms of audience ratings, popularity, and critical acclaim.

Shows like Rectify: Heavy drama TV

Imagine a spectrum where feel-good, comfort shows like Friends are on one extreme, these shows are at the other--emotionally draining, bleak, raw, and depressing, these shows are also compelling and emotionally honest.
