The new Sunday night shows both appear to owe a debt to Castle. "If you’re a fan of the television subgenre that pairs a gifted, impulsive, often childlike male civilian with a tough, straight-arrow, lonely female cop, then you were probably a fan of Castle, one of the most successful shows of the type," says Mike Hale. (Other recent or current examples: The Mentalist, Perception, Forever, A.P.B., Lucifer.) You’re also in luck. Maybe. Sunday night brings not one but two new examples of the genre."
