You know it is that time of the year, when music albums like ‘Top Remix Hungamas of 2009’ and articles like ‘2009: The year almost gone by!’ crop up like scandalized politicians! It is that time of the year here at TMH too! And the entire team (wink wink) here at TMH thought that it would be a good time to slip in a list of ours too!
This is a list of 5 best action, adventure or Mystery TV series. A cleverly designed category that maps to the way the human brain organizes information (wink wink). Let’s get to it!
Prison Break: At #5 we have Prison Break, a series which combines action, adventure and loads of impossible ingenuity. It is at #5 because it does tend to stretch reality through lots of co-incidences. Only a tad though. An awfully good ‘watch’ nevertheless!
Honorable mention: Heroes
Castle: #4 is a whodunit murder mystery series with a superlative cast. Smart, funny dialogues coupled with excellent plot lines make this TV Series an unbeatable one. Extra points for the lead actors: Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic. Honorable mention: The Old Fox, Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
X Files: Coming in at #3 is the X-Files. A dark, chilling, mystery series, with oodles and oodles of small-town America thrown in for the mood. David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson do ample justice to the main characters. The first few seasons were probably the best ever. The truth… is still out there!
Star Trek – The Original Series: This is at #2 only because it is from the sixties, mere technicality. Childhood defining, this series had it all: Mystery, Adventure, Charm, Action and Space. Space – The final frontier. This series has changed television, technology and millions of lives. Honorable mention: Star Trek - Voyager
House MD: At #1 is this medical mystery. Probably the smartest, funniest and coolest TV series ever. A supremely talented cast led by Hugh Laurie, who plays the role of a genius doctor leading a team of diagnosticians. Smart dialogues and Sherlockian deductions, this is the grand daddy of all TV series.
If you feel that any other TV series should have featured here, drop us a comment!
A recovering economy, tainted politicians stepping down and with monster policemen almost behind bars, 2009 is in fact closing on a high note. TMH wishes its millions of readers’ (wink wink) lots of hope and cash in 2010! (Wishes are for real! – No wink wink)
