Recently the Republican nominee for president mentioned the need for more law and order. We at Channel Guide Magazine couldn’t agree more. Law & Order was a great show. Phenomenal show! All joking aside, “Crime Drama” is a great genre.
Feel more like watching a movie? November is packed with crime drama movies. I’m setting my DVR for The Departed (pictured above) on TNT, Goodfellas on AMC, and Mystic River and No Country For Old Men on IFC. Below is a complete list of crime drama movies airing in November. All times Eastern.
