What's Your Favorite Mystery Show?

I've just finished watching a marathon of Monk shows. I can't help but laugh my head off when I watch these no matter how many times I've seen them. When I first started watching them I was afraid I would catch Monk's sickness. Of course I haven't. LOL

Another of my favorites is Psych. Wouldn't you love to meet the writers/actors of this show. I imagine it would be so much fun working with the actors on a show. A new season is about to start - can't wait.

Another favorite is of course, Murder She Wrote. I think of my protaganist Trixie Montgomery as a Jessica Fletcher. Unfortunately, everywhere Jessica went a dead body turned up. LOL The same seems to happen to Trixie.

Matlock is another favorite. I have a little story/confession to tell about Matlock. The Hallmark Channel had started running reruns of Matlock and I was hooked. Well it was college football time and I wanted to get some football channels so I upgraded on my tv programming so I could watch the games. I went to watch Matlock that night and lo and behold I got extra channels, but they took Hallmark off with the upgrade. Now I ask you - how is that an upgrade if they take away channels?
I promptly called my provider and told them to take off the upgrade and give me back my Hallmark channel so I could watch Matlock. I was practically in tears. They felt sorry for me and return to the orginal programming. All is well, but that was a scare! 
Now enough about who I like. How about you. Do you have any favorite mystery/comedy shows that you enjoy watching?  If so what is it that you like best?

  1. The Mentalist and the new Sherlock Holmes series are both superb :0)As far as oldies go, I have always been fond of Colombo, Remington Steele, and Murder She Wrote!

  2. Ooh! My top three mystery shows are Sherlock, Rosemary and Thyme, Agatha Christie's Poirot, A. C.'s Miss Marple, and Monk! And a special nod to House for recreating Sherlock Holmes in a hospital. : )

  3. I haven't seen some of these shows - makes me want to try them out. I'd like to see both the Mentalist and the new Sherlock Holmes. I don't think I've heard of Rosemary and Thyme, Traci. Oh by the way congrats on your recent wins with your manuscript! Thanks girls for stopping by!

  4. Thanks Deborah! I have to laugh...my top "3" was a list of five! Ha.

  5. Remington Steele and Psyche are new to me. My hubby and I love Rosemary & Thyme - the settings are gorgeous and the plots are excellent!

  6. Well seeing as I don't have TV anymore (you get to used to it) mine are kind of old.
    I like Columbo, what can I like inverted mysteries, Banachek and Barnaby Jones.
