The Top Ten

1
Chuck
I love the cast and I love the comedy of it! Best Show Ever! It deserves to be in the top 5!
One of the best spy shows I've seen since La Femme Nikita - great story, action scenes, likeable characters etc

Alexandr

I love it! I suggest them to create new seasons... As in more and more seasons... The writer is great hope you can write again for Chuck's fun... Add that Sara walker is really amazing.

2La Femme Nikita
Far more than a cult favorite, in fact, Nikita prefigured many elements that would
Dominate post-9/11 programming. Alongside The X-Files, the show relied on ongoing story
Arcs, darker tones, and personal conflicts to emphasize the repercussions of individual
Choices, both moral and professional.

One of the greatest T.V. shows of all time! Definitely the best spy series!
On another note, the picture you have posted is from the original movie, not from the T.V. series.

3Burn Notice
The best spy show ever. Chuck finley is the best. And fiona and jesse and michael. And the mikes mom best cast ever.. And who can forget berry... This show had me locked... aNd kept wanting more the best series ever have to watch it from the beginning. And it always has a plot within a plot. This is what super spies do. Just totally entertaining. I love this show
Loved that one... There is no other spy series that couldn't match this one. It was an incredible T.V. show. The timeline, the burn notice thing instead of being fired.. VERY INTERESTING.. Would recommend this one to a friend who likes spy series.
This one is a truly cult and epic T.V. show... Most genuine spy missions and stories with blazing actions... Jeffrey donovan is awesome

15The Mentalist
Not sure who is spy in the Mentalist show.

16Archer

17Homeland
The best drama I have ever seen especially the role of Brody and Carrie.

18The Pretender

19Spooks
A superb British spy thriller show also known as MI-5 in the U.S. never being afraid of going dark or killing off popular character, the show was a definite sucess over its 10 year run and certainly deserves a spot on the list!

20Fringe

21Get Smart

22Dollhouse

This superb show should have been "alive". It had a big potential. Eliza Dushku was great and her team was awesome too

Alexandr


23Human Target

24F/X: The Series

25Dark Skies

This is what I call "REAL SPY T.V. SHOW". Dark Skies is absolute masterpiece with creative story, smart sci-fi moments and suspense

Alexandr


26Mr. & Mrs. Smith (1996)

Definitely one of the best spy shows ever. Unfortunately, they made only 13 episodes. Scott Bakula and Maria Bello played the main roles

Alexandr


27Acapulco H.E.A.T.

28Level 9

29Dark Angel (2000)
Jessica Alba as genetically enhanced superagent who escaped from goverment research facility. I really don't understand why it has only two seasons... It is great T.V. show.
