This is for all the crime dramas, both inside the courtroom and on the streets.

The Contenders: Page 2

21 CSI: Miami
22 Lie to Me

Much talent, based on a real person, real examples of movers-and-shakers (in the news) who are exposed by facial expressions and body language (as examples) during the plot-line of the episodes. Female lead is easy-on-the-eyes, too.

Oh this one is good! So sad there's only 3 seasons. Very captivating!

23 Numbers
24 Longmire

More character development then action. Very good actors and writing: Nice to see something other than cities, too. Modern day western with big skies, horses, heroes, and villains. Sadly, no head-spinning action or gore.

Quite realistic western characters and situations.

36 Broadchurch Broadchurch Broadchurch is a British television crime drama broadcast on ITV. It was created and written by Chris Chibnall and produced by Kudos Film and Television, Shine America, and Imaginary Friends.

Simply, another English who-dun-it that they do so well, with a "Doctor Who," actor!
