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.

Shows like Hawaii Five-0: Cops in Paradise

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.

Most Popular Current Network Dramas

Unlike HBO, Showtime, or Netflix, the traditional broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) need to attract advertisers, which means their dramas cannot be too edgy, dark, or explicit, which makes for lighter binging than Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones.

Shows like Banshee: Non-Stop Action TV

A list for those of us who are easily bored by plot and character development but love frequent fights, shootouts, and car chases--hold the existential dilemmas please.

Shows Like Training Day: Cop Classics Rebooted

In keeping with the overwhelming nostalgia of our era, these shows take classic cop franchises and give them a 21st century remake, from lighthearted 'Rush Hour' to grittier 'Training day'.

Shows like NCIS: Acronym, Colon, City Crime Shows

We're not saying these police procedurals are formulaic, but they do have pretty similar titles and all feature an ensemble cast of suspiciously good looking police officers, a strong emphasis on the process of catching bad guys, and a sense of place.
