If you love mysteries then you have found at least some television mysteries throughout the years that you enjoyed and perhaps current shows too.
Remember Columbo, Father Dowling Mysteries, Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys, MacMillan and Wife, Perry Mason Returns, Ironside, Murder She Wrote, Matlock, Remington Steele, Simon and Simon, Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Quincy, Brother Cadfael, Ellery Queen, Charlie's Angels, Profiler, Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett), Jake and the Fat Man, Nero Wolfe, PBS Mystery (Poirot, Miss Marple), Thin Man-movies, Charlie Chan-movies and many more?
On television currently we have Castle, Criminal Minds, the CSI suite of shows, Psych, Mentalist, Hawaii Five-O, Law and Order, Sherlock, Jesse Stone etc.
My question is in two parts. 1) What past mystery shows were your favorites and 2) what current shows do you enjoy?
I loved the old Remington Steele, Brother Cadfael and the Perry Mason Returns shows. Currently I clear everything Monday nights for Castle! I enjoy Criminal Minds in small doses, the new Sherlock is unique and Mentalist has some great moments.
What are yours?
