Shows like Banshee: Non-Stop Action TV

A list for those of us who are easily bored by plot and character development but love frequent fights, shootouts, and car chases--hold the existential dilemmas please.

Shows like Spartacus: Historical Action Series

If you prefer your fight scenes with swords over guns, and love a good carriage chase, this list of action-packed shows set in the past is for you.

Shows like Kingdom: Historical Action outside Europe

Game of Thrones, Vikings, the Witcher, and countless other series are set in Europe (aka Westeros, "the Continent"). These terrific series take a global perspective--and include shows from the Ottoman Empire, ancient China, and Korea. Don't worry, they still have sword fights (and the occasional attack from the undead).

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 Peaky Blinders: Period Shows for Dudes

Forget the emotional life of butlers and wind-swept moors. These gritty shows are all about sword-wielding soldiers and Victorian bad guys.

Shows like Into the Badlands: One Man Army Series

When lone-wolf action heroes like Jack Bauer, Luke Cage, and the Daredevil call for backup it's not for them--it's for their opponents to even the odds before single-handedly kicking their posteriors--if your favorite line in any movie is Liam Neeson in Taken explaining "But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you," this is the list for you.

Shows Like Deadwood: Westerns on the Small Screen

Whether they're set in the historical West( Deadwood), a dystopian future (Westward), a supernatural realm (Preacher), or the present (Longmire), these shows all draw their inspiration from the classic Western.

Shows like Cobra Kai: Martial Arts TV

These shows span genres, but share a focus on karate, judo, kung fu, mixed martial arts, and boxing.

Shows like the Knick: Cinemax, Post-Skinemax

We're not sure exactly when it happened, but at some point Cinemax stopped showing late-night, softcore porn, and began producing seriously high quality TV drama. Mike Judge Presents Tales from the Tour Bus is some of the best TV you've never heard of.
