More and more of us are discovering the joys of binge-watching. Plunging into a new-to-you TV show is a great way to stay entertained on long cold winter nights. To make it even easier for you, we’ve compiled some shows that are sure to provide inspiration.
Police Dramas Are Great For Binge Watching
There are so many police dramas that it is hard to keep up with them. However that means there are so many great shows just waiting to be discovered. While some are just a couple of seasons open, others are long-running favorites that you simply may have missed. Here are a few we recommend.
The Mysteries of Laura
The Mysteries of Laura is an NBC police drama with a female lead character that has only been around for two seasons. While you will quickly catch up with the shows that have already aired, you can join the legions of fans tuning in for new episodes on Wednesdays.
The USA Network’s Psych is described as a detective comedy-drama. It ran for 8 seasons and finished in 2014. Because it was on a cable channel instead of a network, it is constantly being discovered for the first time by many viewers looking for a great show to binge watch. The lead character is a young crime consultant who happened to have heightened observational skills, which make him a natural for solving police cases.
Dexter is another 8 season police drama that has ended. Showtime’s Dexter ran until September 2013, and was about the life of a blood spatter pattern analyst who works with the police in the day and is a serial killer at night. The popularity of this season while it was on the air continually grew until its finale was the biggest audience in the history of Showtime. Dexter is an exciting show to binge watch and you’ll be hooked quickly.
