Funnily enough its not, it went from Robs obsession of poirot to columbo and since we were on the subject of detective series Up mentioned Diagnosis Murder. Not a subtle as me but it got the job done!

I tried thinking of other detective shows, but for some reason the only thing that comes to mind is Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers. And now I can't get the theme song out of my head.

Ch Ch Ch Chip and Daaaale, rescue rangers!

Does Tintin deserve a mention at this point?

Classic Alan Partridge:

"What about a detective series based in Norwich called ‘Swallow’. Swallow is a detective who tackles vandalism. Bit of a maverick, not afraid to break the law if he thinks it’s necessary. He’s not a criminal, but he will, perhaps, travel 80mph on the motorway if he, for example, he wants to get somewhere quickly…"

Shoestring?

Ah, got it! The best detective series was the BBC adaptation of Miss Marple with Joan Hickson in the lead role. She was great.

i think a great detective serie would be: a guy on fire try to solve mysteries and crimes but dont really know thats it was really he who commited all the crimes himself then he was asleep ... dont care as much for detective shows, i guess.

But how could he possibly get to sleep if he's on fire? And if he was on fire, wouldn't he be more concerned with putting himself out than solving mysteries?

I think they should make a detective show that's kind of like the A-Team, except with four really fit naked women with big breasts. And instead of going about helping people, they should just have hot lesbian sex in their van. And any bad dudes should also be fit naked women, and instead of fighting with guns and stuff they could have mud wrestling competitions.
