Shows like Westworld: Most Addictive Fantasy and Sci Fi

These series cut across genres--superheroes, post-apocalyptic action, supernatural thrillers, and classic science fiction--but they should all come with a warning from the Surgeon General. Don't blame us when you mutter "one more episode" to yourself at 3 am.

Shows Like Person of Interest: High Tech Law Enforcement

Leveraging AI, drones, and bionics, these police officers and agents aren't going to get winded in a foot-chase (unlike the heavyweight cops you see 'keeping an eye' on the local Dunkin' Donuts).

Shows Like Burn Notice: Crime Shows That Don't Take Themselves Too Seriously

These crime and police procedurals mix genuine thrills with just the right amount of lighthearted banter, reeling you in without leaving you too depressed to finish your dinner. The USA network is well represented.

Shows like Castle: Male Female Cop Partners

A twist on the classic buddy cop trope, where a man and woman team up to catch villains--the biggest mystery in these shows, however, is will they, won't they?

Shows like Sherlock: Genius Detectives

Criminals don't stand a chance when they're being pursued by these high IQ detectives and private investigators.

Good Cop, Non Cop

Not saying these lighthearted series are formulaic, but you can create your own by pairing an eccentric psychic, novelist, conman, anthropologist, magician, etc. with a grizzled cop, private investigator, FBI agent.

Shows like Covert Affairs: The Lighter Side of Spying

These shows find the lighter side of spying and espionage--less Homeland, and more Burn Notice.

Best Action Comedy TV Shows

Anyone who tells you that gratuitous and over-the-top violence is nothing to laugh at has clearly not seen the shows on this list including a spate of recent entries including The Umbrella Academy, Doom Patrol, and the little-known gem Wayne.

Shows like Bones: Lighthearted Buddy Cop Shows

Sure they have badges and carry guns, but these dynamic police duos do not take themselves too seriously.
