This show features a group of FBI special agents working in the Behavioral Analysis Unit.

As a team, they track down serial killers by getting into their heads and predicting their next moves.

This show will expand your knowledge of psychopathy, sociopathy, schizophrenia, and other psychological conditions.

You will also learn so much more, as the characters are highly educated and intelligent.

Especially, Doctor Spencer Reid, a member of the team.

He is always spewing random facts and knowledge that you often pick up.

2. Grey’s Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomy

After watching every season of Grey’s Anatomy I confidently say that I consider it as one of the TV shows that will make you smarter.

The whole show is based on the lives of a number of surgeons and supervisors working together in the Seattle Grace Hospital.

Their dialogues are filled with medical terms that you can catch on to by constantly watching the show and you can become familiar with the atypical diseases that they often encounter.

It’s a great show that is honest and easy to enjoy, and it can teach you a thing or two.
