Awesomeness Detected- TV Edition
I decided to really change it up a bit and make a list of my favorite detectives. Now, I jotted down quite a few, but then I realized that I was missing even more. So, I asked around, and my little list 'o detectives quickly grew into a large (or, as I like to say, GINORMOUS!) list. Then I realized that I would need to break it down into sub-categories. Now, I will say that this is in no way the end-all/be-all of TV detective lists, but merely my opinion of who really stood out and made us tune in each week for more. So, without further delay, here's my list of favorite TV detectives!
- Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel
- Columbo from Columbo
- Harry Dresden from The Dresden Files
- Jesse Stone from the Jesse Stone films
- Theo Kojak from Kojak
- Thomas Magnum from Magnum P.I.
- Rico Tubbs and Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice
- Adrian Monk from Monk
- Mick St. John from Moonlight
- Jessica Fletcher from Murder, She Wrote
- Precious Ramotswe from the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
- Hurcule Poirot from Poirot
- Jane Tennison from Prime Suspect
- Jim Rockford from The Rockford Files
- Scooby Doo from Scooby Doo, Where are You?
- Veronica Mars from Veronica Mars
