48 Hours is a news/documentary program that has been on the air since 1988. All of the subjects take place in a two day period. The primary topic of coverage is “true crime” documentaries. The show is not limited to just investigations. They sometimes cover events like September 11th or the Virginia Tech shootings. Each piece is narrated by the investigative reporter covering the story, and deals with mysteries and cases from all over the United States. There is a spinoff of the series titled 48 Hours: Live to Tell. Instead of a reporter telling the story it is done through interviews and first person accounts of the crimes that happened.
Criminal Minds is a police procedural drama that follows cases taken on by the Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI) Behavioral Analysis Unit. This is a standout show, because it focuses more on the criminal rather than the crimes committed. Each episode is focused on the motives and the entire “why” of the case as opposed to other details. It also delves into the lives of the investigators. Throughout the series, although there have been many casting changes, focuses on 4-5 agents within the Behavior Analysis Unit. The first two seasons of the show received wide critical acclaim. However, in later years it is said that the amount of characters that remain on the show are too many and do not add anything to it.
Forget the typical American comedy sitcoms, The Big Bang Theory is a shining example of geek culture at its finest. Following the nerd-tastic lives of four social outcasts, each hilarious episode is a world away from the slapstick comedy that dominates the air today. Expect a cluster of wit, science fiction references and humor driven by some of the most awkward scenarios life could throw at a group of astrophysicists—allowing the audience to see a completely different and humorous side to the geek stereotype. Throw in the beauty and the mind-bogglingly low IQ of Penny, the show’s very own girl next door, and you have yourself the dynamics for one of America’s funniest comedy sitcoms since 3rd Rock From The Sun first leapt onto the screens.
More than just a typical cop drama, NCIS is a gripping series that sees a team of highly trained agents investigate the crimes and mysteries that fall under the U.S Navy’s jurisdiction. From sniper shootings and hostage situations, to government conspiracies and murder mysteries, NCIS will catch you hook line and sinker as each individual episode follows a new adrenaline-fuelled plot. Ten seasons strong and still going, this is a show that has seen more than a few familiar faces: LL Cool J, Chris O’Donnell and Michael Weatherly are just a fraction of the brilliant and diverse cast NCIS has to offer. Be sure to strap in tight, the quirky humor, suspense, plot twists and explosions are more than any fan of police procedurals could ask for.
