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).

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.

Shows Like Breaking Bad: Charismatic Anti-Heroes

You may not admire these criminals, but you can't deny their charisma. And that's what makes them so dangerous.

Shows like The Wire: Gritty Crime Shows

These series feature crooked cops and ruthless criminals who mix it up on the garbage-strewn streets of big cities. Pioneering shows like NYPD Blue and the Shield focused on cops in US cities, but the best of the current batch are anchored in the lives of gang members on the mean streets of Birmingham, Rome, Paris and Dublin.

Frenemies on Opposite Sides of the Law

Sparks fly and tension mounts when friends sit on opposite sides of the law--think Walter White and Hank Schrader, Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder, the Jennings and Stan Beeman.

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 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 Boss: All Politics is Local

There are plenty of shows about Washington, but for those who can't stand Big Government, we've put together a collection of shows that keep politics local (which doesn't always mean clean).

Shows like the Sopranos: Made Men and Wise Guys--Mafia Dramas

An organized list of organized crime shows, which are sure to appeal to anyone who ever stuck an orange slice in their bottom lip and said "You come to me on the day of my daughter's wedding...".
