Shows like Firefly: Bingeable One (or two) Season Wonders

Most shows that get cancelled after a season or two deserve to be relegated to the ash heap. A few great shows, however, never made it past season two, leaving tons of disappointed fans in their wake. The good news is that you can binge them in a day or two.

Starz Original Dramas

While not as well known as HBO and Showtime, the premium network Starz has produced some high quality original dramas including Power, Black Sails and Outlander.

Shows like Succession: Battle for the Throne

Whether set in Westeros or West London, these series explore the dynamics when rival factions battle for control of a kingdom, media empire, or criminal enterprise. Nature abhors a vacuum at the top, but television producers love it.

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 Show me a Hero: Taking on City Hall

These shows take a realistic look at the machinations of city politics and citizens trying to disprove the adage that you can't beat city hall.

Shows Like Homeland: Political Thriller TV

While modern politics may seem more unpredictable than anything a TV writer could come up with, these shows give reality a run for its money, with fast-paced plot lines around terrorism, corruption, and political scandals.

Shows like House of Cards: Political Animals

These grounded political TV dramas follow the day-to-day work of politicians as they serve the public, or more often serve themselves. Think more 'House of Cards', less '24'.

Shows like Chernobyl: Cerebral Political Thrillers

Forget the action sequences and badass special agents, because these shows delve into the political side of conspiracies--but if brains are not better than brawn, they can always call in Jack Bauer.
