Criminal: If Netflix can only be popular for one thing, it has to be its intense crime dramas. The latest from the streaming service is Criminal, which takes place in an interrogation room with a suspect and group of officers and detectives. The good guys are determined to get a confession or useful intel, even if they need to break the rules to get it. Criminal is now streaming on Netflix.
