Whenever I put on one of my favorite crime shows it’s often because It’s safe – meaning I know it’ll be entertaining! I know it will wake the detective in me and make my brain work overtime just to figure out “who done it” before they let us know. Me and my sister always guess half way through. My pet peeve you ask? When you don’t even get to see the guilty person during the investigation or as a suspect! Then how are we supposed to find out before the end?? Oh well, without further ado, these are my top 5 crime shows.
1. Bones (2005-2017)
Bones is about Dr. Temperance Brennan, an anthropologist working for the Jeffersonian institute. She and her team are helping the FBI with solving murders and Dr. Brennan (or Bones, as Booth calls her) has partnered up with the FBI agent Seeley Booth.
For laughs, “aaw” moments and a lot of “eww” moments, Bones is the perfect show! I love the partner dynamic between Bones and Booth all the way through the show, and also how it changes. I also love all the different characters in the lab. An example; Mr Nigel Murray.. what a character!! But if you’re squeamish, I definitely wouldn’t recommend the show!
2. Criminal minds (2005-)
Criminal minds is about the F.B.I. Behavioral Analysis Unit (B.A.U.), a group of profilers specialized in analyzing serial killers.
Criminal Minds has for a long time been one of my favorites. It’s got it all; a lot of crime, a lot of love, the genius, the quirky tech girl and the hot FBI guy. A lot of action and a lot of suspense!
3. Sherlock (2010-)
I really don’t know how to explain this show, other than that Sherlock is too smart for his own good. I mean, the show is about Sherlock and his detective partner Watson solving crimes. But it is so much more that that! This has a lot of action, suspense and also witty and arrogant comments from Sherlock. You’re nothing if not entertained!
4. Numb3rs (2005-2010)
From the high level of intelligence, to the math (that is far beyond my knowledge), to the dynamic between the brothers – I absolutely love it. Visualize; one brother a FBI agent, one a mathematician. The FBI often need the help from the mathematician brother. And, action!
5. Law and order: suv (1999-)
Law and order is a program about a unit of detectives working in the New York Police Department (NYPD), specializing in investigating sexually related crimes.
This program will bring out all the emotions; anger, disgust and sadness. It will also bring you a lot of suspenseful and nail biting scenes! It will take away your faith in humanity but then also bring it back, luckily!
As you can probably tell, I recommend these shows a lot. Specially if you like crime shows. And if you don’t, maybe you’ll start now!
