Best Action / Thriller T.V. Series of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Spy Game
22 Monster

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

23 Dollhouse
24 Renegade
25 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

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 ever

26 The Pretender

The Pretender and La Femme Nikita are my favorite 90s shows! I miss that time

27 Relic Hunter
28 Fargo Fargo
29 Naruto: Shippuden Naruto: Shippuden Naruto: Shippuden is the ongoing sequel to the original Naruto anime and covers the Naruto manga from volume twenty-eight on. The TV adaptation of Naruto: Shippuden debuted in Japan on February 15, 2007 on TV Tokyo. It is developed by Studio Pierrot and directed by Hayato Date.

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.

30 The X-Files The X-Files
31 Homeland Homeland Homeland is an American spy thriller television series developed by Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa based on the Israeli series Prisoners of War, which was created by Gideon Raff.

Now that's we call a seores

I've watched no T.V. series as action packed and realistic as this one. Just blows your mind and cuts their heads. A million stars for this starz series.

I once drained 6 cups and found myself in heated argument with imaginary cat!

35 Lost Lost Lost is an American television drama series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company from September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, over six seasons, comprising a total of 121 episodes.

Next to 24, this was the next best series for me. I wouldn't mind owning dvd's of all the seasons of this series as I have for 24!

Irritating upon first viewing. Awesome upon second viewing.

This show is amazing, enough said!
