Everybody loves the classic detective show. Detective shows are some of the most fantastic intrging show on the T.V. With so many off them i am going to list my 5 personal favorites here in no particular order.
Psych is the hilarious story of Shawn Spencer, a man who as a child was, trained by his father to be a fantastic detective. Shawn doesn't join the police force but, instead uses his skills to pretend to be a psychic. Though this show may not be as intense as some of the other shows on this list, it makes the list for sheer hilarity alone. Shawn's style of investigation, the setting and the diversity of story stops this from being your run of the mill average detective show.
anatomy but has absolutely no social skills. She is counter balanced by Booth, a savvy FBI agent. This may seem like a run of the mill average show. The thing that saves the show is the inventive stories that sometimes can be serious and other times can be particularly funny.This show makes the list for its mix of hilarity with drama and variety or writing.
Monk is one of the more unusual detective show to make the list. Monk follows well Monk, a man who was so distraught after his wife's murder, that he developed terrible OCD and is laid off from his job at the Police Department. Monk eventually rejoins and brilliantly solves crime from his unique view point. The television show is very light and happy but, in some specific elements it explores dark stories with that special Monk touch. Monk makes the list for its quirky atmosphere and happy pick me up feeling that it pulls off even with the presence of deaths and murders.
Fringe is a new fox series that centers around detective Oliva Dunham. The show deffenitaly defferiantates itself in many ways. For one it doesnt follow the usual story, in Fringe all the murders follow the "pattern" or that scientists are now testing their Fringe science on the world. Very strange and awsome murders insue all following a dark mysterious pattern that leave you wanting more. This show makes the list for its inventive mysterious story's always leaving me with a fantastic cliff hanger. I hope this show stays around for a long time.
