When the FBI steps in (and often steps on the local cops' toes), you know the situation has gotten serious. This is a round-up of all the TV series we could find featuring FBI agents from the serious to the surreal (we're looking at you Twin Peaks).
Most TV series prefer a psychological take on drama--focussing on individuals and their motivations--Some of the best series in history, including the Wire and Chernobyl, have looked at the world through a sociological lens and focused on how institutions shape peoples' behavior. These series examine how bureaucracies deal with crises. Spoiler alert, it doesn't typically end well.
If you're less interested in seeing baddies tagged and bagged, and more interested in seeing how police departments run, then this list of cop dramas may be for you. Hey, it's just like any other office, but with more mustaches, guns, and pending internal investigations.
