And whether it is on the side of Netflix or TF1, you won’t risk getting bored or missing out. We promise, we tried to be objective (even if it wasn’t easy). Come on, follow the guide!
Criminal minds, Shemar Moore we love you
The pitch? Criminal minds traces the investigations of an elite section of the FBI, specializing in psychology. Together, they analyze the thoughts and minds of the country’s biggest criminals, trying to predict their every move before they take action.
Why do we validate? Endearing characters (cc Shemar Moore)intelligent (we are thinking of you Reid) and interesting (Agent Penelope Garcia, base). But also, a good way to explore all the complexity of criminal analysis. For fans of psychology and thrillers, Criminal minds is THE ideal series. A melting pot of mind-torturing investigations, which will undoubtedly improve our skills as unparalleled investigators. But be careful, just because you watch Criminal Minds doesn’t mean you’ll be able to join the FBI or the DGSE, let’s not get carried away.
NCIS, the ultimate detective series
The pitch? There NCIS (Native Criminal Investigative Service) is a federal agency attached to the Navy and Marine Corps. Its mission is to enforce the law in this environment, but also to investigate mysteries and crimes surrounding the American naval forces.
Why do we validate? Notice to fans of detective series, you probably agree that it is impossible to miss NCIS. And of course, we’re talking about all of NCIS, but with a special mention for the very first version titled “Special investigations”. Because yes, as good chauvinists, we are admiring the quality of the first episodes carried by Mark Harmon, aka Leroy Jethro Gibbs. In the end, it’s probably the ultimate detective series. And it’s not the housewives on TF1 who will say the opposite.
Sherlock, to play detective
The pitch? Sherlockit is a television adaptation of the famous eponymous work by Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes. Namely an eccentric detective, trying to solve mysteries and enigmas using incongruous clues in the streets of London.
Why do we validate? If you want to see Benedict Cumberbatch without his Doctor Strange powers, you’re in the right place. Joking aside, Sherlock it is a modern-day revisitation of a work that is far too underrated. Half series, half soap opera, it’s a beautiful ode to detective novels of our childhood. A good way to rack your brain against the backdrop of a character who is both unsympathetic and endearing. WE love !
Mindhunter, just “what the f*ck?!” »
The pitch? In Mindhunter, two FBI agents imagine a revolutionary method to anticipate the movements of the country’s biggest criminals. Particularly by analyzing their way of thinking and reflecting.
Why do we validate? Mindhunterthis is the last little detective nugget of Netflix. A detective series and a psychological thriller at the same time, what could be better? What’s even more scary: it is inspired by real events, more particularly books Mindhunter: inside the head of a profiler And The killer in front of me. In other words, these “what the f*ck” methods of determining the psychology of serial killers really existed. And we love that! Unfortunately, the show did not have the success it deserved since, despite a certain fascination, it was canceled after the second season… Bad luck!
Research Section, the little Frenchie from detective series
The pitch? The Research Section is a special unit of the National Gendarmerie, responsible for resolving complex investigations and cases. Disappearances, sexual crimes… investigators are at the heart of the craziest enigmas.
Why do we validate? Come on, let’s head towards France! Because handsome, body-built Americans are fine for five minutes. In Research Section, you will be entitled to 100% French surveys. Mysteries around serial killers which become more and more credible over the episodes and seasons. Because yes, we recognize it, the first times are always a little laborious. And if you want to get an idea, that’s good, because the season 15 of Research Section is broadcast this Thursday, February 8 on TF1!
