I've recently stumbled onto The Mentalist
Originally, it struck me as a super smart dude using science and stuff to solve problems.
Turns out, it's a former carney whose wife and daughter were killed by a seriel killer. He uses his skills as a con artist to corner the various criminals.
At times, he's glib and at times, he's broken.
He wears a suit vest quite well.
The mysteries are tolerable and occasionally it's not this week's guest star.
His police sidekicks help fill in the detail.
Sort of like Monk
in fact, a lot like Monk. Monk uses his extreme OCD to solve crimes.
I bumped into Elementary
as well. I resisted twisting the Sherlock story line too much. The BBC did a fair job. I watched a few episodes and ... better than expected. Watson isn't really Watson but they seem to have a chemistry. The NYPD police captain is not entirely Lestrad but ... close enough.
They make a big deal of Holmes' addiction.
I'm only a handful of episodes in so hard to tell.
So, three broken geniuses solving crime with their "normal" sidekicks.
(One could "almost" include House in the formula.)
Odd pattern in the stone.
