22/05/2020

Because there is more to cop shows than CSI, the Mentalist or NCIS, here is a selection of great shows to watch, for everyone!

The Shield
The Shield

Before S.W.A.T., the show carried by Shemar Moore, existed, Shawn Ryan had created The Shield, in 2002. A cop show in which the main heroes aren't really here to enforce the law, but mainly their own. We follow the Strike Team lead by Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis), whose methods are very efficient yet quite reprehensible. It's dark, intense and captivating throughout 7 seasons.

Brooklyn Nine Ninee
Brooklyn Nine Nine

Change of genre with this comedy centered on a Brooklyn police precinct in New York.You will dive into the daily life of the 99 squad lead by captain Holt and his clumsy and hilarious team. One thing is for sure: you will never be bored by their adventures and you'll laugh at every episode.

Columbo
Columbo

We are not joking. Columbo is one of the most iconic cop shows there is, and mostly thanks to his main character played by Peter Falk whose investigations transformed the genre. In the show, the identity of the culprit is revealed at the beginning of each episode, the main focus is on how Columbo is going to push him to make mistakes It's very ironic and dramatic throughout the episodes and the viewers absolutely love Columbo peculiar methods.

The Wire
The Wire

Considered as one of the best tv show ever created, The Wire is an epic and complex saga that explores each part of the city of Baltimore. The story is told by different characters from all sides: police, crime, corruption it's all disclosed. But try not to get attached to any of the characters and  dive into David Simons sprawling story.

Justified

Meet Marshall Raylan Givens, a cop like no other, played by Timothy Olyphant, who is transfered to his hometown in Kentucky. He's going to find familiar faces, both friends and enemies, yet he'll try to impose his law as efficiently as possible, thanks to a lot of sarcasm. But the Crowder family, the bosses in town, will make life very difficult for him. This is a raw atmosphere, quite different from the other shows we have talked about, but with a great dark sense of humor.

Criminal Minds
Criminal Minds

If you're into serial killers and crime psychology, this is the perfect show for you. Much darker than it seems, immerse yourself in the gruesome investigations and the complicated relationships between the members of the Behavioral Analysis Unit, who relentlessly track down monsters.
