 About the Book 

Ever since the first transmitters were pointed to heaven, crime shows have had a special place in the hearts of viewers. Now, Cult TV: The Detectives takes a look back at some of the greatest crime series of all time as well as those nearly-forgottenMoreEver since the first transmitters were pointed to heaven, crime shows have had a special place in the hearts of viewers. Now, Cult TV: The Detectives takes a look back at some of the greatest crime series of all time as well as those nearly-forgotten < from the cops-and-robbers classic Dragnet (Just the facts, maam.) to the groundbreaking, darkly surreal cult favorite Twin Peaks- from the staunchly reliable courtroom drama Perry Mason to the wildly-paced cop-action melodrama Hill Street Blues. This compulsively browsable A-Z companion features full cast (including guest stars) and production details for over 200 entries, as well as behind-the-scenes trivia, fascinating anecdotes, and photos to bring back the memories. As in good detective drama, no ground is left uncovered. Jon E. Lewis and Penny Stempel are the authors of Cult TV: The Comedies and Cult TV: The Essential Critical Guide.
