Best Action / Thriller T.V. Series of All TimeDJZeezo Most enthusiastic, heart catching and amazing series we have watched.
The Top Ten
The only show that rivals Breaking Bad is The Wire. Breaking Bad is incredibly intense from start to finish, the characters are all incredible (yes, including Skyler, because she serves a good purpose in the series), and it's extremely unpredictable, yet all the twists make perfect sense. The show, overall, is about a man who is dying, whose dreams died long ago, and who has nothing to lose. He cooks meth to provide for his family, but he starts to like
cooking meth. As the series goes on, he gradually descends into darkness and cruelty, yet his character remains easy to understand, and we all feel empathy for him. This, of course, is Walter White, who is in my mind, the greatest character in the history of television. This is all thanks to his character development, as he turns from a nerdy, mild-mannered high school chemistry teacher to a ruthless yet badass drug lord. When Walt does something, his actions have consequences, and it's not like the consequences are a one-time ...more
How can you guys forget this one...?
With its perfect combination of science (chemistry), humour, action and thrill, it truly deserves a place in top 3!
Great plot, direction, performances and cinematography
Oh yeah this is my favorite show that's on cable by the way I have watched the show from 1-20-08-9-29-13 and I never missed a thing so how many of you have seen every episode when it was on
Brilliant showV 16 Comments
I turned to a complete addict when I first saw this series and all my mind was occupied with the next episode, you get so thrilled you might piss yourself while watching.
I'm a crazy movie and series watcher, but I never enjoyed a series more than this one.
It's a masterpiece that truly deserves a special award!
This series took a completely unrealistic situation and presented it in such a plausible manner that you believed it actually could happen. Nothing was contrived; every piece of the puzzle fit. It made you think, yet it kept up a fast pace to keep your interest. Well-written, simply an amazing series.
Easily the best show in the Thriller genre. The most amazing part of the show was that the Characters in the series had so much meaning and essence to them. I still consider characters like T-Bag and Mohone, benchmarks for multi-layered characters. Truly Sensational.
Prison Break is awesome and Abruzzi was the greatest character ever!V 47 Comments
Dude... This is what a "Legendary" T.V. series should be like! 24's a edge of the seat thriller... The best of all time... Jack bauer is an extraordinary character... I love this series because it keeps you thrilled up to the 24th episode! Love it!
World best thriller T.V. series without any doubt
The best show I have ever seen. Perfect one, Jack bauer is GOD.
Greatest show ever. We will never see a better one. Jack Bauer is the greatest!V 41 Comments
Actually Very happy to see it here among the top 10..
It is definitely the best, I found it to be even more better than breaking bad in terms of suspense, thrill & Awesomeness and much much fast paced & no drama..
Yeah I know all the other shows had true acting but I guess it's really not fair to degrade only because it's an anime...
One of the best plots, each episode made you want to see more, it truly speaks to you about concepts of life, death and justice. I highly recommend it.
Please watch this it's the best T.V. series ever - kishoreradden
I am justice!
I AM KIRA!
Hunter and the hunted duel in this audacious crime drama based on the Baltimore drug scene. Brainy drug lords, bent cops and crooked politicians may defer them all they like but a group of honest cops are hell-bent on eradicating the drugs from their city. One of the all-time greats. I can't believe 24 & the crappy Prison Break are ahead of this. - deltaop007
Best ever then Sopranos and Breaking Bad
Damn dis was awesome
No doubt, the best of them all. period.V 4 Comments
This show is pure and udder gold. I could be really ignorant and go on forever and ever so ill just say 3 things. 1) amazing plot twist 2) flawless acting 3) likable and emotionally enduring characters
Great story line and the depth they go into with the characters makes for a great story line. It keeps you on the edge of your seat! I look forward to every episode!
A series with original story line, quite interesting, like the suspense.
This should definitely be number one.V 10 Comments
Anti-Hero T.V. shows are always interesting. Jax Teller is one of the best anti-heros.
Sons of anarchy is one of the best T.V. shows! It should be at least in the top 5.
Action thriller to the best. Should be in the top 5.
Based on HamletV 4 Comments
One of the best T.V. shows from the 90's. Peta Wilson showed an amazing acting. The whole cast was great
Cult classic of 90s Television! This series inspired many other shows like Alias, Nikita, Painkiller Jane etc
I wanted more and more episodes! Season 5 was too short!
They don't make entertaining shows like this anymore
This is a great T.V. version of Lethal Weapon. They should have done more seasons
One of the Best police T. V shows ever made, this series covers so many topics at the same time like Corruption, Dirty Cops, Drug Lords, Gang Wars, Family Issues, Politics, Mafia Threats, Loyalty & Betrayal and so many messed up things all in one series... this T. V show will defiantly mess with your head and teach you many ironic lessons in life. - DJZeezo
Loved the series and loved the way it ended everyone got what they deserved.
The fact this is 54th shows how poor this list is. Best show still on just now, by far, and people only think they know what's going on, no one is sure. You win or you die!
It's one of a kind. It's unique in it's way. Not as good as 24 or Prison Break but very good too.
One of the best T.V. series ever
Best show everV 1 Comment
Very awesome thriller which I expect everyone watch
The best series I think or at least no.2 I still have its every season and watch it whenever I am bored.
Unbelievable twists! Truly amazing.
Awesome show.My rating 9/10
First two seasons are best.Fast, suspenseful and too gripping.
3rd, 4th and 5th season are good
6th, 7th and last season are slow
Overall the complete show is worth watching
Too much action
Great animated series that exceeded all expectations... This T.V. series made all anime shows look like childish cartoons.
74 episodes of nonstop suspence and a breathtaking mystery
The Pretender and La Femme Nikita are my favorite 90s shows! I miss that time
Here it is 2018/March and I found this show. Absolutely awesome. Keeps me on my toes. Good pace, cerebral, and great acting. The music is done in good taste, not too loud. The minimum amount of sex there is does not detract from the storyline - an excellent balance. This is no 24, but it's not supposed to be - it's on its own, this one.
Saw season 1 only, but it seemed more likely drama and crime. - zxm
Marvelous Performances, Extraordinary Script, Excellent Direction, Overall It's Nuclear, It creates a vacuum around you, you cannot escape it, I am sure I will never have the privilege to see a Masterpiece like the 1st Season of True Detective again
The best, nothing less...
LOVED this show. Was so happy when Netflix picked it up! Sad when it ended.
Reddington may be a top 5 T.V. show character of all time. Watching his moral ambiguity play itself out on screen is one hell of a ride. James Spader carries both the the show and the viewer on his back and body slams us in the end zone
Just brilliant. Spader is outstanding, steals every scene he is in.
Nothing is more intriguing than a criminal master-mind in the open. playing "catch me if you can" with the cops. I just love this show!
Engaging.V 1 Comment
It should be much higher on this list in my honest opinion. But being an anime ranked 17th on such a general list, of mostly American shows, is impressive.
Very intriguing series. I find it amazing how the writers were able to mix the spy drama with humor and comic relief so seamlessly. There were always plenty of things to laugh about, but it never distracted me from the focus of the show. The show is also very resourceful. I like all of the creative situations and ways the characters deal with them. It is kind of like MacGuyver in that way. The voice overs by Jeffery Donovan really make you feel as if you are getting a crash course on how to be a spy. It really breaks the mold of most action shows these days. Many are focused primarily on action, and lack a solid plot. Or they are all about cops doing cop things, which kind of gets old after a while. Burn Notice has a great balance of Action, Plot Depth, and Humor. I think that is why very few people have ever disliked the series. While there are many shows that I like, I don't think I have ever seen a show I enjoy more. 10/10
Burn Notice was an awesome series, was great how it had a big plot but also had a show within each episode.. ! Loved this series, #2 only to 24... ! Highly Recommend... !
3 words: action, drama, romance
Totally draws you in, then twists and turns along the way. Kickass action and lovable characters too! No shortage of action scenes, but not totally overdone in any wayV 2 Comments
