This is just a great show. It works great on a number of levels, for anyone who like whodunnits, action without huge amounts of violence, drama with morality. I consider this a "nerds" mystery with heart. I would think anyone who liked the old Columbo mysteries or Monk would also like this, although it does have more action and violence. I saw the pilot initially, and was turned off - serial killer - a little too violent for me - but after that, it seemed to hit its stride. I love the metaphysical mindset brought in by Dr. Larry, even though he's a bit of a whackjob. Love the strong family relationships, and brothers working together finding their way even though they are so different, the searching for faith from a Jewish standpoint. That's very different. And there is action, just not over the top with bits of body parts squelching everywhere, like in CSI. After 6 seasons they ended it, I guess it wasn't bloody enough for today's R-rated audience, but for a nerd like me I loved it. Whenever I saw them talking about something I learned in physics, I was, "Yes!". Is it real? No. But neither is House, or CSI. (Those labs in CSI? I mean, Mine were always like sick green or white tile, not filled with cool black and UV blue lights...)
