It's not on tv anymore but that's okay, right? I am totally picking Due South. Man, that series. It ran from 1994-1998 iirc, so there's quite a lot of 90's going on in there, but disregard that. I love that this is a show that pretends to be serious, but at the same time it really isn't. There's a plot every episode, sometimes it lasts for 2. You know, police series, mystery solving. Basically it's about a Mountie who goes to Chicago to find the guy that killed his father, then because of CIRCUMSTANCES he stays there for a long time. He sort of partners up with a tough Chicago cop (of which there are two, and I must confess my preference for Callum Keith Rennie because rrrr) and solves mysteries. Anyway! The thing is that sometimes really weird things happen. Stuff that shouldn't be possible but Due South makes it seem normal. Like Fraser's dad, who at one point in season 1 shows up and then... pops up every now and then. As a ghost. To criticise Frasers skills as a mountie ("When I first joined the Mounted Police, all the equipment we ever got was a paper bag and a pointed stick. Now, we used the bag to boil tea, and the stick was for killing game, and if you lost either of them, they charged you for it!", when Fraser is blind and has lost all feeling in his legs in the middle of the Canadian woods, with a killer walking around preying on him and his city cop partner). I can go on and on about this series, it is absolutely amazing. It's too bad there's not too much of it to be found online, since it's so old-- I got all 60-something eps on dvd for about 30 dollars, though. So if you like the like... 5 eps up on youtube, go for it.
