According to "Paste" magazine, these are just a handful of the '40 Greatest Cop Shows of All Time.'

The only qualifications were that these shows had to have detectives in the lead roles and were considered 'police dramas', and shows about private investigators were a no-go. Sorry Magnum P.I. ...

Here's the Top 10:


1.  "The Wire"

2.  "The Shield"

3.  "True Detective: Season One"

4.  "Hill Street Blues"

5.  "Justified"

6.  "Homicide: Life on the Street"

7.  "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit"

8.  The British series "Luther"

9.  "Fargo"

10.  "NYPD Blue"

Did yours make the list? What other show should have been included?
