I also like the Miami one, but can't stand Khandi Alexander as the doctor. She never wears her surgical mask correctly.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned 'The Wire' from HBO.

My folks are addicted to it, they got me the first season on dvd. I watched it all (13 episodes) in four nights.

Simply the richest and best-developed title in the police procedural genre.

Law and Order w/Mike Logan and Lenny Brisco

The Wire is a damn good show, though.

Homicide, best cop show in my lifetime. The characters had depth, they grew, changed, and were affected by things they saw. They bought a bar, killed thier girlfriend's fish, and committed suicide. It was about the cops, not the crime. It was the exact opposite of the Law and Order shows. Law and Order is about deep as Perry Mason. Someone commits a crime, the cops investigate, Jerry Orbach says something witty when they arrest the suspect, and Ice T says something gansta. They go to trial, people says some stuff, few plot turns, and 8 out of 10 times they get a guilty verdict. Other two times the guy gets off, and the show gets all thoughtfull. rinse and repeat. Very well done, the writing and acting is top notch, but its a formula show.

I also love Magnum P.I. A guy with a great 'stach lives in Hawai, on a rich guys estate for free. Drives his Ferrari, swims on his beach, and raids his wine celler. His two best friends own a chopper and a bar. When hes not swiming, surf-sking, or picking up hot chicks, hes investigeting crimes. Usually with more hot chicks as the clients. The definiton of the good life. Its a formula show too, but I like the formula better

Sopranos-definition of a crime show. I love it, but it leaves me feeling guilty for enjoying it so much.

I love lots of crime shows. I never really took to NYPD Blue, Third Watch or CSI. I don't really watch Law and Order anymore, but I did like Law and Order Crime and Punishment, and I thought the new series looks good. Right now my faves are: Without a Trace, Cold Case Files, American Justice, The First 48. Also, lately I've been watching some of the Michael Jackson trial reenactments.

I'm glad someone finally mentioned Homicide. Great show, was really sad when it went off the air. As I remember, the series finale was pretty good? It really is a lot deeper than shows like Law and Order or CSI. I think CSI has some interesting story stuff, but the acting always strikes me as really cheesy.

I loved "Homicide" but it's not on anymore except in reruns. I was thinking of shows that are still first-run. I got tired of Law and Order for the same reasons, it was so formulaic.

Hawaii 5-0 really sucked, but the line "book um Dan-O" kind of stuck. Talk about bad hair, that show had it! They did have some cool bikini shots though.

Yeah... LOST is cool. Not another cop/lawyer/sex/reality drama show. It has it's like Twin Peaks in the sense that it fits no mold.

I like Lost, too. I think I have got the show all figured out...will just have to see if I am right!

I always watch Cold Case on Sunday nites, too.
