Oh, crime shows bring you a sense of calm too? Check out this list dude!!!

12 Crime Shows You Need To Watch That Will Make You Feel Like Spencer Reid When You're Done

Ever since I can remember, my family has settled down watching some show centered around a crime with a good storyline and a splash of mystery.

We all love it, especially if it has quality characters and a romantic relationship or two in there. Now I am not talking true crime (those freak me out, I am a 20-year-old girl and unfortunately at a prime age to get snatched).

I am talking - slightly realistic but made up enough that it doesn't give me nightmares.

These shows are sprinkled over Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, so as long as you have access to one of those, this should be helpful for you!!!! I hope you love them as much as I do, go forth, and be consumed with the screen.

1. "Bones"

Can't say enough about how entertaining this show is. A forensic anthropologist and an NCIS agent work for the Jeffersonian and uncover the mysteries of victims while bantering constantly. I would like to hug the writer of this show.

2. "Criminal Minds"

A classic. A little too real for me if I am watching it home alone, but bingeing this show is so easy to do. The plotlines are great and the characters are better.

3. "Bull"

This is crime-meets-law-meets-psychology. Entertaining for all my future lawyers and anyone who has wondered how an argument can really win.

4. "Blue Bloods"

Family and crime baby. Wholesome in a way that is neither cheesy nor boring.

"Lie to Me"

More psychology than heavy crime, which is why I love it so much. The wit is immaculate.

6. "NCIS"

Ugh my first criminal show. Brilliant, Incredible, Amazing, Show-stopping, Spectacular...

"NCIS: Los Angeles"

Second best "NCIS." "NCIS" meets the beach, plus the characters are beautiful.

8. "How to Get Away with Murder"

So many plot lines, never enough episodes. You think you know how each plot line will end, and you'll be wrong. Easy to get consumed in.

9. "Quantico"

The characters are oddly beautiful. Training for the FBI would make a good show itself, but the twists and turns that Shonda adds in will keep you up watching past your bedtime.

10. "Person of Interest"

Awkward characters that you can't help but love. If you are already paranoid about being watched, don't watch this one.

11. "Monk"

This show was funnier when there wasn't a pandemic going on (making his germaphobic tendencies seem intelligent instead of comical now). A high strung detective and unique crimes, this older show always makes me laugh while keeping me entertained.

12. "White Collar"

I could watch this on mute and still love it (lol watch it and you will understand). Art and high class and wit mixed with ritzy New York criminals? What is there not to like?

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
