If you’re like me, the best choices for such a task are intense, tension-building thriller series that will have you looking forward to your commute (which is a feat in and of itself!) and have you on the edge of your seat (should you be lucky enough to get one) until the very end. Need some ideas still? Try one of these mystery/thriller series, each guaranteed to keep you busy and entertained on your day-to-day commute!
