I've been watching too much tv, trying to follow each and every show, so I'm going to narrow my tv time down to 4 shows. Still excessive probably, but we all need some couch time!!
Let me describe all these shows: Detective with consultant partner solves crimes, with romantic overtones (except for Mentalist). Castle and Bones both write crime novels which fulfills the romance that doesn't happen in their lives. Psych and Mentalist both use jedi mind tricks to one up their respective detective friends. The crimes are sometimes similar too, but I don't care. Most of the main characters in these shows have had parents involved in crime (victim or otherwise) which led them to their careers. If it's a good story, it's a good story. I can basically watch the same show 4x a week!
Creators of Grey's Anatomy have a new show out about doctors doctoring in foreign countries. It looks like it's going to be a lot of dramarama just like Grey's.
