Interesting shows with very little or no romance

It's holidays for a couple of weeks where I live and I have lots of time on my hand, so I wanted to watch something interesting, does anyone have a suggestion?

House of Cards is good and hasn't really any romance that is heavy on the show.

What kind of shows you into cause I can suggest a plethora of tacky reality TV shows

Re: Interesting shows with very little or no romance

The X- Files is pretty platonic lol

The Honourable Woman has very little, almost no romance.
BBC's The Fall

Do no harm, but take no shit.

Re: Interesting shows with very little or no romance

Thanks everyone for the suggestions! I think I'm gonna go with Xfiles and The Honorable Woman... I'm already attached to too many unfinished shows so I'm going to hold off on the on-going ones for now which is a shame because I kinda checked out The Fall and it seems like something I'd like a lot...
Anyway do suggest more stuff if anything else pops into your mind

Oh I've been watching House of Cards for a while, already finished the 3rd season...
I can enjoy some reality tv episodes here and there but I don't think I can binge watch those

It's not that I dislike romance, it's just that there's too much of it in every show

If you're into that flavor of show, check out Fringe as well. TBH few of the shows I like (mostly sci-fi) have romance as a main arc.

Mulder: "So you're agreeing with me?"
Scully "No! You're bat-crap crazy."

Re: Interesting shows with very little or no romance

The Fall I love slow paced and dark.

It just confirmed last week that there will be a third series


Inspiration is for amateurs
