Netflix Must Know I'm Addicted to Crime Shows

Do you love the adrenaline rush when you see the good guys catch the bad guys? Do you like a twisted story revolved around murder? Well, lucky for you, here's a list of Netflix's variety of crime shows that keep us binging:


Now this is the type of show I can re-watch five times and still not get sick of it. Blacklist is about the one and only Raymond "Red" Reddington, a former officer who has been on the "10 Most Wanted List" for over 20 years. Reddington surrenders to the FBI to get closer to one specific individual. In exchange, he gives the police force his word that he will lead them to various criminals just like him. There is constant drama and something new is always happening. I promise you will never be bored when watching Blacklist. Starting to wonder why Reddington turned himself in? Curious to know what his intentions are? Time for you to start watching Blacklist

White Collar

Similar to Blacklist, White Collar is about an art thief and conman, Neal Caffrey. Neal has been hunted down by the FBI for many years, specifically by one agent by named Peter Burke. After being locked up for quite some time, Neal decides to escape prison. In successfully doing so, Neal is now on his own. With his past catching up to him, he gets caught by Burke again. But things turn out differently this time. Instead of putting Caffrey back in prison for good, the FBI releases him under their wing. What's in it for Neal and the FBI? Start watching to find out!

Criminal Minds

Criminal Minds is one of the most addictive shows. It's the type of series that you start, you think you are starting to like, start to fall in love with, and before you know it you are finished with all 12 seasons. The show is focused around the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU), a division of the FBI. This unique team of individuals' job is to help solve crimes in which the perpetrator is unknown. In doing so, they must break down each case to track the unsub before any more harm is done. If you are looking for a show that makes you feel as if you are involved too, this is the show for you. I'll be watching an episode and I'll catch myself trying to help solve the crime, or I'll start to get frustrated because of a certain decision that was made in the show. Regardless, this show is a must-watch. 

Hawaii Five-0

Hawaii Five-0 is one of those series that took me awhile to really get into. When I say a while, I really mean about 6 episodes or so. The story takes place in beautiful Hawaii and is centered around a task force created by the governor of Hawaii. The main character and commander of this task force is a former Navy Seal named Steve McGarrett. McGarrett was offered a position as the commander of his own task force, Five-0, to investigate serious crimes on the islands. As a newly equipped task force, McGarrett is in charge of recruiting other team members, keeping Hawaii safe, while also following the specific rules made by the governor. My favorite part about this show is the drama between the characters and the affect it has on all my emotions. You wouldn't think so, but this show will get you through a tissue box or two.  


My all time favorite show and best crime show ever–Dexter. This show is about a man named Dexter Morgan, an expert in blood spatter pattern analysis who works for the Miami Metro Police Department. Dexter has a mind of his own. He doesn't only help to solve murders, he commits them too. He doesn't consider himself to be like any other serial killer because he only kills those guilty of committing crimes. Interested yet? It gets even more intriguing. Dexter works with his sister, who is also a police officer for the Miami Metro Police Department. He is living this double life that no one is aware of, a life that involves almost no family, friends or love. Just a man and his kill room. 

So what're you doing? Go start binge-watching your new favorite crime show!
