Sad to Be Right

2009 Feb 11

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.
