The Saturday Seven: Favorite TV Detective Shows

We don't normally watch much TV, but our TiVo does work overtime to record a number of programs to keep on hand for when we do want to watch TV. Almost all of them are detective shows, well not like Sherlock Holmes, but the more modern variety. There is a whole range of them all similar to one another but I like most of them. This was the inspiration for this week's scintillating edition of The Saturday Seven: Favorite TV Detective Shows:

#1 Criminal Minds
#2 Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
#3 CSI: Crime Scene Investigates

#4 Without A Trace

#5 Cold Case
#6 CSI: Miami

#7 Lie To Me
Do you watch any of these? If so, which is your favorite? What are your favorites?
For my readers in the UK, feel free to mention any UK detective type programmes! So go ahead, leave a comment today!

I enjoy Criminal Minds, (miss Mandy though), but I'm not that into TV either. Except for Project Runway and Top Chef!

I am addicted to L&O! Well, maybe not quite that bad as I don't usually follow the L&O< Criminal Intent but I do usually watch the other two -both the current shows as well as reruns on TNT and other channels. Two programs I really liked but don't see them carried anymore on the "re-run" channels are "Homicide: Life on the Streets" and Davinci's Inquest." I also watch Without a Trace, Cold Case and The Closer too. Usually watch them when I'm awake in the middle of the night. LOL

Heck, I've seen a few but I was thinking you were doing a retro crime show blog. I used to watch more TV and favorite old shows included Columbo, Magnum PI, Nightstalker, Prime Suspect.

I only watch Law and Order SVU because I am in love with Elliot.

I also watch Fringe. Do you guys watch this? It's incredible and I love the mystery aspect.

Have a great weekend!

I love the CSI's but then again my favourite is Midsomer Murders here in the UK. John Nettles...mmmmmm...

Used to watch Cold Case, Without a Trace and L & O and really did enjoy them, but stopped. We now watch The Closer, Psych, Monk, NCIS, The Mentalist, and Burn Notice. (Pretend these are all in italics (I was an English teacher, for heaven's sake!!)).

I occasionally watch L&O: SVU, but I prefer CI. I tend to watch stuff on cable like NCIS (reruns), The Closer, and Rescue Me (not a detective show).

I watch all of those!
We just brought out a UK Law and Order and its just not the same. I hope it improves.
