I have a thing for Robin Hood like people. This is Robin Hood in moderntime. Some really great cases with great plans. Like the team chemistry as well. And Mr. Kane, of course.

Stars: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, David Zayas, James Remar

Votes: 551,971

Funny how a serial killer can get your sympathy. Kind of suspicious that Dex is almost never suspected of anything and always gets away with everything, but it's still interesting to watch.

Stars: John Lithgow, Jane Curtin, Kristen Johnston, French Stewart

Votes: 40,789

Hi-la-ri-ous. One of the most funny tv shows I have ever seen. A bunch of aliens come to earth and pretend to be human? The misunderstandings and the clumsiness are just hilarious. Oh. And I love JGL.

The missions of MI-5, the UK's domestic intelligence organization.

Stars: Peter Firth, Hugh Simon, Nicola Walker, Rupert Penry-Jones

Votes: 12,569

After 9 series it is still mindblowing. It's pretty realistic, not everybody survives and it's extremely thrilling. It's like 24, only much, much better, much more exciting and a lot more believable.

9. Silent Witness (1996– )

Stars: Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Una Stubbs, Rupert Graves

Votes: 614,772

I love BBC stuff. It's always made with such detail and integrity. This one is also great. A modernday adaptation of Sherlock Holmes in which Sherlock is a very annoying, but endearing, slightly sociopathical 'consulting detective'. Really funny.

True fan to the end. This was just an amazing show. Who cares if half of the plotline didn't end up anywhere or just didn't make any sense? It was good for 6 seasons of entertainment.
