Shows like Jekyll: Classic Characters Reimagined

These shows bring classic characters to life in modern times and strike a nice balance between familiar and exciting, although 'Sherlock' does need to be a bit more explaining. If you like you old wine in a new skin, these are for you.

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 Sherlock: Elementary, My Dear Watson

Shows about or inspired by Baker Street's most famous detective, chock full of deduction, Victorian bromance, and unaddressed opiate addiction--enter the Sherlockverse.

Shows like House: High-Functioning Addicts

These dramas trace the struggles of people facing the demands of high-powered careers (and the rest of their lives) while struggling with alcoholism and other addictions.

Shows like Castle: Male Female Cop Partners

A twist on the classic buddy cop trope, where a man and woman team up to catch villains--the biggest mystery in these shows, however, is will they, won't they?

Best Drama TV
