I grew up in an era where TV was the main family pastime. There we were dad, mom and the siblings spending quality time together watching our favorite shows. Among those shows were the Detectives.

This may date me but Dragnet was a picture from my childhood. Dad and I were at the edge of our seats enjoying the fast paced no-nonsense Jack Webb as his voiced introduced each episode.
I'm old school and still stuck on the shows that are long gone. I don't watch any of the new ones. My all time favorite detectives were those on NYPD Blue, Homicide, and in more recent years, The Shield. I was so addicted.
Oh yea, Barney Miller was a great show and funny, all about detectives. I also liked Hill Street Blues. Even though it was more about police, it also had detectives. Much more realistic than other TV shows.
I love the british shows like Pie in the Sky and Rosemary and Thyme and Midsommer Murders and even Doc Martin sometimes My mom used to like Murder She Wrote and Matlock and Columbo.Just curious what your favorites are.
