There’s just this weird thing with police TV shows. It’s almost like all of them take place involving the FBI and the regular police do no work at all. I mean, that’s pretty accurate judging from my own experience with the local police here, but it’s still a pretty mean assumption to make. Let’s not forget the boys and girls in blue are primarily here to help us. That or they flunked college and didn’t see another way out.
Thankfully, this plethora of FBI TV shows also means we can separate the good from the bad. You never know you; one day you wake up with a weird FBI obsession but want to avoid watching absolute crap shows with thin plotlines and characters that make you feel less than your ex’ Facebook statuses. And just in case you thought we’d be messing with you, I’ll even be nice and add the IMDB scores so you know I’m not talking shit. It’s my Christmas present to you.
Twin Peaks (8.9/10)
One of the best shows of the 90s, this show sadly only ran about two seasons. Good news is, it’s been renewed in 2017 for a third season, but we’ll have to wait and see if it can live up to the expectations set by the original. The bar is high, though.
The X-Files (8.7/10)
Just in case regular FBI work doesn’t cut it for you and you want some aliens in there. X-Files was renewed for a season in 2016 and might probably get renewed again. It was a financial success, so Hollywood will probably want to milk that. Again.
