I really enjoy Poirot as well.

As far as mysteries go I also enjoyed PBSs presentations of a modern era Sherlock Homes...

And a Swedish detective in Wallander...

LOVE those nerds!
Castle and BBT, here too. Slap on Person of Interest, NCIS and Elementary and my week is set...unless The Voice is on, which it is! :)

Hmm, didn't turn TV shows on the whole time Shrek wasn't home? There has to be somewhere you could ship him off to - just not as drastic as a hospital. Then again, in my DH's case the kitty just might trip him coming down the steps. (*gasp* Did I type that with my "outside fingers"? ... )
We are low census at work again...I may have to push Shrek down the stairs or trip old folks in the mall...maybe I'll just take a vacation The last time we were low census I got Shrek a bed at work... Poor Shrek!!!

If you can get it the CBS series "The Closer" is very very good.

Its about a brilliant Las Angeles homicide detective that always finds a devious way to get a murderer to either confess to the crime or implicate themselves in such a way as as to assure their conviction.

She's a southern gal from Georgia who has that disarming southern charm.

She uses a combination of this charm and the "dumb hick" stereotype to lull the perps into a false sense of security and keep them off balance.

I've been a fan of Kyra Sedgwick since I saw her in Phenomenon and she dies not disappoint in this series.

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0458253/

Another outstanding series that comes to mind is Medium.

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0412175/

Be prepared to be hooked by either one of these programs.

We watched the opening season of Deadliest Catch last night. I'm not sure why I've enjoyed this show for so many seasons but I do. Hard working hard living interesting manly men makes for compelling TV. I find myself really caring about most of them.
