Indian choices are definitely improving. A few years ago, I thought that C.I.D. was the best crime show on television. We marvelled at the storyline, the crime episodes and “Daya darwaza tod do.” However, now with the introduction of new crime shows, we realise just how “amazing” C.I.D was. These shows are truly interesting and entertaining and keep you wanting for more. JAM recommends Top 5 must watch shows.

The show follows the life of Dexter Morgan, a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department by day and a serial killer by night. One is caught between disgust and empathy as Dexter struggles with his urge to kill while protecting his family. The watcher is caught in an uncomfortable place as we wonder: is it wrong to be fascinated by a killer? The main character may be good looking but this show is so much more than that.

2. Supernatural:
The series has tried to incorporate the old stories and legends in modern day context. As the seasons progress, the story moves on from finding their mother’s killer to civil war in heaven to war in Heaven and Hell because God is MIA! And the drool-worthy hunks definitely increase the appeal of the show!

3. The Vampire Diaries:
Does one really need to have a reason to watch this show full of handsome hunks and gorgeous girls? As the show progresses, the love triangle between Elena, Stefan and Damon gets thicker and trickier and hot guys are steadily added in the mix. Still fascinated by vampires, werewolves and “love for eternity”? This is definitely the show for you!

4. Castle:
The series follows charming author Richard Castle and sexy homicide detective Kate Becket as they solve numerous cases together. Their relationship hints at undercurrents of romance and makes for an interesting watch. The light hearted drama series is the perfect way to unwind after a long tiring day as Castle tries his hardest to charm Beckett and Beckett tries her hardest to not give in. This show is most definitely perfect blend of romance and crime.

5.Criminal Minds:
The show follows a team of profilers at Behavioural Analysis Unit (BAU) in FBI at Virginia. It is a well-written show backed by strong performances and well-thought out plotlines. One of its distinct features is that it solves cases by focusing on the psychology of the criminal rather than the crime. A definite watch for all the psychology enthusists!
