Sad to Be Right

February 11, 2009

So Hannah (my girlfriend) and I have been watching the steady stream of funky cop shows.

– Cops that solve crimes with ghosts (Ghost Whisperer)
– Cops that solve crimes with visions (Medium)
– Cops that solve crimes with cold reading (The Mentalist)
– Cops that solve crimes with math (Numbers)
– Cops that solve crimes with science (Eleventh Hour)

About a month ago, I told Hannah that it as only a matter of time before we would see cops solving crimes with literature. Lo and behold, there’s a new show — Castle — staring Nathan Fillion as a murder mystery writer who helps cops solve crimes.

Next up: cops who solve crimes with history. Cold Case doesn’t count.

    – Cops that solve crimes with their huge boobs will be a winner.

    It was called Baywatch… they just weren’t cops.

    You’re missing the best of the bunch: Cop who solves crime with Zen (Life).

    The cop who is actually a giant cop that is formed out of a team of tiny rookie cops, each becoming a limb surrounding the torso (which is a laconic black cop with integrity and street smarts) and head (which is a wise old retired cop, reluctantly back in the game). One leg is sexy and one arm doesn’t give a damn about protocol!

    There was already a cop show that used literature:

    Murder, She Wrote.

    Angela Landsbury – on the f’n EDGE.
