Foxtel has the Australian rights to many major series from the US and UK. If you don't want to pay out for a full Foxtel subscription, Foxtel Now is a relatively affordable alternative. Or maybe BINGE? Whichever option you choose, you'll have plenty to watch. And if you're an action/thriller fan, make sure to start with any of the following titles.
Not your typical superhero series. A re-imagining of the cult graphic novel, Watchmen takes place in a world where masked vigilantes are treated as criminals by government agencies. It’s magnetic, thrilling and action-packed. Plus, the cinematography is to die for.
True Detective follows police officers around the US who have to face dark secrets about themselves while investigating homicides. If that sounds like an intriguing premise, it is. Each season focuses on a new case and features a different cast, so we can almost guarantee the show will keep you coming back for more.
Fear The Walking Dead is a fresh take on The Walking Dead universe and is set three months before Rick Grimes awakens from his coma – the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse. This one is more of a slow-burn horror, which is a nice departure from the intensity of the original series.
If it is intensity you're after, then catch the entire original series of The Walking Dead. Once you're finished with that you'll have plenty of Fear The Walking Dead to binge.
Expect to wear out the edge of your lounge seat with this one. Homeland is the thrilling tale of CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), a bipolar, unpredictable operative who still delivers results better than anybody else. She fearlessly risks everything, including her personal wellbeing and sanity, in the effort to track down a growing and amorphous terrorist threat to the US.
This is binge-watch material that's like Tom Clancy's finest OG spy thrillers.
Still considered to be the best TV series ever produced, The Wire only shows its age via the dodgy telecommunications technology depicted. Pay phones and beepers? Remember those, grandpa? Beyond that what you're still getting is an incredibly tightly-written drama that showcases both sides of the law in a drug war on Baltimore's streets.
Get set to fall in love with a bunch of flawed characters who regularly skip back and forth across that good/evil divide.
Atlantic City in the 1920s was a mean and dirty place ruled by the iron fist of criminal mastermind Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (Steve Buscemi). Serving as a main thoroughfare for illegal booze quickly makes Thompson rich, but also a target for a number of crime families in New York and as far away as Chicago.
Yep, not only will you be getting one of the greatest untold mob stories of the era, but you'll also get to see a young Al Capone rise to power, too.
This oft overlooked series is our kind of weird and creepy. With Carnivale you're looking at a multiple Emmy award-wining series that traces the lives of two disparate groups of people during the Great Depression and Dust Bowl. It's a battle between good and evil and the struggle between free will and destiny largely being fought by carnies.
Thrillers rarely get more compulsive than this. In The Flight Attendant, Kaley Cuoco plays Cassie, a flight attendant who likes to party. After she spends a particularly wild night with one of the passengers, Cassie wakes up to find him dead. Even worse, she doesn't remember much from the night before. Did she have something to do with his murder? Tune in to find out.
One of the world's most famous detectives got the prestige TV treatment. A period action drama, Perry Mason is set in the 1930s and stars Matthew Rhys as the titular character, a defence lawyer hired for a sensational child kidnapping trial. As he investigates, Mason realises the case is much more complex than he initially thought. This is more of a slow burn, but it's definitely worth the time investment.

Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements.
