The Big Bang Theory

Brilliant physicists and roommates, Leonard and Sheldon, may know a thing or two about quantum physics but interacting with humans socially; not so much. Lucky for them waitress and aspiring actress Penny moves next door to bring the two and their equally smart but socially awkward friends out of their shell. The Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular shows on network television today and critics credit this popularity to the comedic timing of its ensemble cast.

The only cast member to actually have a PhD is Mayim Bialik who earned her Ph.D. in Neural Biology.

The Good Wife

Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) has always been “The Good Wife” but when a political scandal lands her husband in prison she is forced to resume a career as a defense attorney in order to support her family. Unlike most court room dramas, fans flock to The Good Wife not only for the intense case by case trials but to see Alicia’s evolution.

Ashley Judd and Helen Hunt were also up for the role as Alicia Florrick.

NCIS

The toughest cases effecting the Navy and Marine corps are cracked by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service’s (NCIS) Major Case Response Team. Lead by Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs this colorful ensemble of characters mix humor with drama to add interest to another procedural show.

In flashback scenes, the actor playing Agent Gibbs has his real life son play his younger self.

Criminal Minds

Lovers of psychological thrillers will fall for this procedural drama. Watch as an elite squad of FBI profilers known as the Behavior Analysis Unit analyze the country's most corrupt serial killers in an effort to anticipate their next move before they strike again. Criminal Minds has gathered such a vast following that the creators have crafted a spinoff series called Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

One screen actors, Matthew Gray Gubler and Kirsten Vangsness often do double duty on set. Gubler has directed several episodes while Vangsness has written her fair share of shows.

Limitless

Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) lived life as an average 28-year-old until he’s given the ability to tap into the full extent of his brain thanks to the mysterious drug NZT. Life no longer remains average when he starts working with the FBI to solve complex cases. Critics have called Limitless the millennial’s procedural drama combining everything people love about Castle, Scrubs and Sherlock.

The creators went all in with a shot for shot homage to Ferris Bueller’s Day off when Brian decides to call in sick from work in order to acquire more NZT for his personal use.
