5 TV crime dramas to check out this week


Just released on Netflix, this Korean drama packs in plenty of martial arts action with some top-notch crime drama. Woo Do-Hwan and Lee Sang-Yi are two young boxers who, to make ends meet and help Do-Hwan’s mother out of debt, go to work for a “money lender” who’s really a gangster.

After they cross him, the two decide to fight back and aid others less fortunate, which soon has a powerful mob after them. With some top-notch action amid the sordid drama, this should tickle the fancy of folks who like some martial arts spark in a crime show.

The Crowded Room

Newly released, this Apple TV+ drama has a great showcase for Spider-Man star Tom Holland. He plays Danny Sullivan, who was arrested for his part in a shooting in 1979 New York. As a psychologist (Amanda Seyfried) interrogates him, Danny reveals new details of his life and what drove him to commit this crime.

The supporting cast includes Emmy Rossum, Will Chase, and Sasha Lane, but Holland is the true star as his turn makes you wonder just what makes a killer tick and a gripping character study.

It is based on The Minds of Billy Milligan which is based on real events.
