Top thirty crime procedurals, #6: Quincy, ME

IMDB link.

Basic premise: A more realistic CSI with fewer puns.

Why it’s here: Jack Klugman is underrated as an actor; this is the oldest show in the top 10, and each time I think about it I wonder if I might not push it a little higher. There’s an emphasis on realism and practicality that CSI doesn’t always have. Quincy never carries a gun; he doesn’t need to.

Why it’s not higher: The top five are better. There might be some excessive nostalgia propping this up, which I can’t discount.
