Favorite police show:
3. This is Your FBI - It's pretty hokey but I expect it to be hokey. I'm not turned off by it. I'm not turned on by it either, although it sometimes makes me laugh. It's not a well-done show but it's got that certain flavor I expect. It's bad and it's supposed to be bad, get me?
2. Dragnet - Dragnet is mostly an awesome show. Again, the acting can be pretty bad but it's supposed to be like that. Sgt. Friday is as dry as a cold north wind as are each of his superiors. And I wouldn't have it any other way. Extra points for some great sound effects.
1. 21st Precinct - Great acting and stories. I simply love this show and wish there were 500 of them. I hate to say it but this show is twice as good as Dragnet.
Favorite detective shows -
3. Black Museum - Not really a detective show but worth mentioning more than most of the sap out there that calls itself a detective show.
2. Sherlock Holmes (with Basil Rathbone) - Everything about the show is first class and clever. I think I learn something after each show.
1. Richard Diamond, Private Detective - This show is one that I appreciate more every day. I realize just how smooth Dick Powell was. And the guy was funny as well.
