Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

International Drama TV

A round up of the best non-English drama series from around the world including Bollywood classics, K-dramas, and Nordic Noir, that are definitely worth the subtitles or dubbing.

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 iZombie: Shows That Talk to the Dead

If shows about people speaking to the dead speak to you, then you're on the right list, composed mostly of detectives who have a direct line to the after-life and use it to solve crimes. Miss Cleo was wasting her talent!

Bollywood TV

A round-up of Bollywood TV comedies, rom coms, dramas, thrillers, and YA series.

Shows Like The Killing: Slow Burn Crime Investigations

Unlike shows that solve a crime a week, these investigations unfold over the course of an entire season--this list is for fans of True Detective (season 1), The Night of, and The Bridge.

Shows like River: Detectives who Talk to the Dead

Police procedurals where the detectives communicate with the recently deceased to solve murders.

Good Cop, Non Cop

Not saying these lighthearted series are formulaic, but you can create your own by pairing an eccentric psychic, novelist, conman, anthropologist, magician, etc. with a grizzled cop, private investigator, FBI agent.

TV Series Inspired by Twin Peaks

These shows build on elements of Twin Peaks--evil bubbling underneath an apparently wholesome small town, detective work, surrealism, some horror, and undertones of the supernatural--all with a nod to David Lynch's distinctive style.

Shows (sort of) like Lost

Lost combined an overarching plot, ensemble cast with dense backstories, a creepy setting, symbolism and mythology, and of course of a steady stream of mysteries that keep you guessing. There may never be another Lost, but shows like The Leftovers, Siberia, and Carnivale may scratch that itch.
