My favorite crime show of all time, Brilliantly written, perfectly casted...with a little bit of everything, not too much of anything
15 October 2014 | by my-annie-seattleSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this show. I like crime shows in general, especially when they have a Sherlock-ian lead, but this is my favorite of all time. This show is like a combination of the Mentalist, Bones, CSI, and the Highlander. Its magic is not in its components – it is in how well it is done. The critics seem to be slamming the fact that it is a conglomeration of characteristics of other shows – but why not take the best parts of them all and put them together? What is wrong with that? This is entertainment, not an artistic statement. Nonetheless, it is very well written – funny, smart, exciting and absorbing, and with a sentimental twist. It is more lighthearted than CSI and more emotional than the Mentalist. I love that it tends to be more about biology and medicine than hair samples and carpet fibers…it's more about all the obscure ways people can die. The flashbacks to history are kind of fun, too. It is perfectly casted-the lead actor/main character is so expressive and charming you are instantly drawn in and rooting for him. The characters play off of each other very well—a little too much of anyone/thing and it just wouldn't be the same. In short? I look forward to this show all week, and when I watch it: I laugh, I cry, I learn something, my heart pounds in places and later it melts, and I end just about every show sad that it's over and wanting to watch it again.
