Dozens of sitcoms are set in the workplace, but far fewer dramas focus on workplace dynamics and politics. This is a list of shows, like Mad Men and the Morning Show set in an office--typically of an interesting industry like fashion, newscasting, or the law.

Shows Like Poirot: Agatha Christie and Her Admirers

A round-up of mysteries, written by Agatha Christie or inspired by the grande dame of crime mysteries. These series often feature citizen sleuths who solve crimes in their spare time. Lighthearted and breezy, they are perfect for watching in front of a roaring fire, preferably with a warm pot of tea close to hand. Note that a few of the more recent interpretations are darker fare, and may not appeal to Poirot fans. If you're looking for darker adaptations of the Queen of Mystery's classics, see our list "Modern Takes on Agatha Christie," and if you like the lighter fare, try "Cozy British Detective Shows."

Most are set in England, but we've included some cozy international mysteries as well.
