Anybody watching this show? It is about a former
actress who teams up with a private investigator to
solve crimes. The show is basically like Castle with
some minor differences. In fact, it was created by the
same guy.

It is interesting that the writers had the two lead
characters in bed in the first season. In Castle, they
waited until the end of the fourth season.

Nope. Meant to check it out, but haven't yet.

There's a new show on WGN America now that seems a bit CASTLEish. It's called CARTER and stars Jerry O'Connell. He's an actor who does a detective series, and goes back to his home town to solve crimes. And his female best friend (who he is attracted to) just happens to be a detective. It's actually pretty good, though. We're DVRing it.

CASTLE had Beckett trying to solve her mother's murder, and Carter is trying to solve his mother's murder, or some other mystery surrounding it.

From what I understand, it is actually a Canadian show.

I like Carter. Another one is Private Eyes starring
Jason Priestley. This one is Canadian also.

Have there been many shows with a PI or Cop teaming up
with a civilian? The only ones that come to mind are
Remington Steele (my all-time favorite) and
Moonlighting.

Enough to be a whole genre. Just with the Castle formula, you have DECEPTION (illusionist consults with the FBI), LUCIFER (the Devil consults with the LAPD), THE MENTALIST (former fake medium consults with law enforcement). There’s another one on the Hallmark Channel about a food critic with a cop partner.

Duh! I don’t know how I could have forgotten the Mentalist and Lucifer.

The Hallmark Channel one is a series of movies based on a book series, called THE GOURMET DETECTIVE. And they do those more sporadically than their other mystery movies series that are based on books.

DECEPTION was good, but alas got axed after one season.LUCIFER is moving to NETFLIX.

Is it assumed that being on Netflix will mean Lucifer
will be "darker"?
