Shows like FBI: Quantico's Finest FBI Shows

When the FBI steps in (and often steps on the local cops' toes), you know the situation has gotten serious. This is a round-up of all the TV series we could find featuring FBI agents from the serious to the surreal (we're looking at you Twin Peaks).

Shows Like True Detective: Two Cops are Better than One

If you're a lawbreaker, then these cop partnerships were made in hell. Twice the efficiency, twice the force, and more than twice the banter.

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 Orphan Black: Best TV Psychological Thrillers

The villains in these shows - and often the protagonists - are not rational actors committing crimes for gain, but are rather driven by their inner demons.

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 House: Eccentric Genius TV

They're good at their jobs, which is why people tolerate these geniuses who could be charitably characterized as "gruff and complicated."

Shows like Mindhunter: Getting Inside the Criminal Mind

Think of them as therapists' badass cousins: these criminal profilers use the power of psychology to delve deep into the twisted minds of the worst criminals--typically serial killers.
