Here, some notes on thriller TV serials, roughly 50 of them. They are crime, action, war, and medical (etc.,) TV serials – basically non-Glee stuff. I’ve spent a lot of time researching on them trying sample episodes/seasons on YouTube/forums. See if you can make use of these recommendations. Also, let me know if I have missed any.
Good ones (Try not to miss them)
Dexter (5/5) – Could you bring some more please?
Fringe (5/5 so far) – Hope JJ doesn’t take the path he took for Alias/Lost
24 (4/5) – Can’t tolerate one more season.
X-Files (3/5) – Don’t want to watch them all.
Yet to try out (short-listed)
Lie to me
Tried and “no thank you”.
House (3/5) – Good one, but not for me.
Lost (2/5) – First season is good, director “lost” it second onwards.
Alias (2/5) – Good start, totally lost it in first season itself.
CSIs (2/5) – too boring.
The Mentalist (2/5)
Burn Notice (2/5)

I slightly don’t agree with you on “Lost”. I think, director lost it only in the last season.
Glad that we agree on him being “lost” part 🙂
I have seen Dexter and Breaking Bad. They are too good . There is another British serial which is called Jonathan Creek. Which is also amazing cool. Though it is very different from American serials
“Jonathan Creek” ? Thanks, I am trying it next
Flash Forward is boring.
Lie To Me is good!
Bones, I think deserves a 3/5.
Burn Notice is just really horrible. Season 1 is currently on air and its just plain bad.
Yeah, Flash Forward is rejected. Bones, I disagree. 😦
looks like you might have similiar tastes to me, I have also disgarded the same as you, I love Dexter & Fringe, have a look at Being Human and for a lighter one try Warehouse 13, but i think that Spooks is the best tv series I have seen.
I so agree I think Spooks was the best tv series, I also like Dexter but never got into Breaking Bad, even with every one yelling at me how could you not like it ! Also fan of The Walking Dead.
