Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

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 True Detective: Two Cops are Better than One

If you're a lawbreaker, then these cop partnerships were made in hell. Twice the efficiency, twice the force, and more than twice the banter.

Shows like Southland: Realistic Cop Shows

Forget eccentric genius detectives and coroners who speak to the dead, the stars of these shows are cops doing the hard work of catching criminals.

Shows Like Pure Genius: Tech Geniuses at Work

Elon Musk's favorite list: the heroes of these shows are all tech geniuses, who harness their intelligence and resources towards the good, or sometimes downfall, of mankind. Too real?

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?

Shows like The Fall: Cat and Mouse Thrillers

It all started with Sherlock Holmes and Dr Moriarty--the epic and prolonged chess match between two worthy adversaries--full of relentless pursuit, near captures, and tight escapes. Whether it's spies, serial killers, or terrorists these baddies are too slippery to catch easily.

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.
