Shows like Homeland: Best Showtime Shows

Over 500 scripted TV series were produced in the US in 2019, but quantity does not guarantee high quality. Showtime, like HBO, has consistently produced outstanding television for years. This list rounds up some of the network's greatest hits (and a few misses).

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 Animal Kingdom: Keeping Crime in the Family

The bad apple doesn't fall far from the tree in this collection of outlaw dramas that keep it all in the family; 'Animal Kingdom' has the Codys, 'Sons of Anarchy' the Tellers, and 'Hatfields & McCoys'... well, you can probably guess.

Shows like Medici: Political Intrigue through the Ages

Cutting across time periods and settings, these shows have one thing in common--lots and lots of political plotting and intrigue.

Best Drama TV

Since the Sorpranos ushered in the Golden Age of television in 1999, networks and streaming services have launched thousands of English language drama series--this list rounds up the crème of the crop that stand out in terms of audience ratings, popularity, and critical acclaim.

Shows Like War & Peace: Finally, Some Continental History

It seems like every period drama made these days is about the British aristocracy; these shows broaden the scope, and focus on continental history, from Carolingian era to the Napoleonic.

Shows like Breaking Bad: Descent into Evil

The protagonists begin these series good--or at least trying hard to be good--but make a series of choices that lead them to a much darker place. Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are only the beginning.

Greatest Modern British Drama TV

The United Kingdom has produced some of the greatest series in television's Golden Age, including Sherlock, Black Mirror, Peaky Blinders, Luther, and of course Downton Abbey, and we've rounded up the best of the lot based on audience ratings, popularity, and critical acclaim.

Shows Like Reign: Getting in with the Courtiers

If you're a fan of childish monarchs and tittering courtesans, then these court dramas are for you...not to be confused with court dramas about our democratic legal system, something which would make these aristocrats vomit on their perfumed lap-dogs.
