Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

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 Thief: Criminal Masterminds at Work

These shows take the classic trope of a good cop pursuing a criminal mastermind, and turn it on it's head to focus on life from the criminal's point of view.

Shows like Hustle: Scam Artists in Action

You wouldn't believe how long it took us to get this slippery bunch of hackers, scammers, and con-artists on to one list; we’re glad we did though as one of them introduced to a Nigerian prince with an unbelievable investment opportunity!

Shows Like Burn Notice: Crime Shows That Don't Take Themselves Too Seriously

These crime and police procedurals mix genuine thrills with just the right amount of lighthearted banter, reeling you in without leaving you too depressed to finish your dinner. The USA network is well represented.

Shows like Billions: White Collar Crime Shows

These white-collar crime series make the Wolf of Wall-Street look like a Bichon Frise (although nobody charms like Leonardo DiCaprio).

Show Like Thief: Shows for Aspiring Thieves

If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day; if you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime; but if you teach a man to steal others' fish, he'll eat for a lifetime without having to spend all his time fishing. Heist and theft shows that follow this philosophy!

Shows Like Person of Interest: That's it, Bring in the Fixer!

These fixers help those trouble, and solve their problems by any means necessary (thankfully for the viewer, it's rarely a quiet chat).

Shows like The Blacklist: Villains Catching Villains

These shows tell the stories of criminals who have been recruited to help the police, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies to catch other bad guys. They often have or develop a close relationship with their law enforcement partner.

Shows like Money Heist: Heist TV Shows

TV series about planning and executing a big heist--think Ocean's 11, but for TV--with some of the best entries coming from Spain (Money Heist), France (Lupin), and the UK (Hustle).
