Top Ten Best Crime Dramas


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Law and Order: Criminal Intent

A very good show

22 Crossing Jordan
23 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!

24 True Detective True Detective True Detective is an American anthology crime drama television series created and written by Nic Pizzolatto.
25 Law and Order

The original and longest running of them - Frouze

26 Flashpoint

I loved the show

27 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.

35 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!
