“Psych."

A crime show that cherishes its own goofiness while dealing with the reality of thefts, murders, and assaults will leave you guessing at the real crooks. Sean and Gus run their own long con game while the ensemble cast adds to the quirkiness and fun of the stories. “Psych” welcomes you along for the ride without the need to wade through kiddie pools full of bodily fluids.

“Grimm."

	There’s nothing quite like criminals who are actually <a href='http://www.screenjunkies.com/tag/monsters-296/' class='linkify' target='_blank'>monsters</a> to throw a little life into a crime show. “Grimm” centers on a detective who comes from a long line of people who can see the <a href='http://www.screenjunkies.com/tag/supernatural-969/' class='linkify' target='_blank'>supernatural</a> monsters. When you come from a line of monster hunters you tend to invoke fear in every monster, good or bad, and that’s where some of the <a href='http://www.screenjunkies.com/tag/mystery-779/' class='linkify' target='_blank'>mystery</a> in “Grimm” comes from.  The “Bears will be Bears” episode shows off the detective’s neurotic monster pal, Monroe, as he struggles to keep his nature in check.</p>

	<strong>“Life."</strong></p>

Charlie Crews is out of prison and back as a detective, but he hasn’t forgotten his thirst for vengeance over being framed for the murder of his police partner and family. “Life” is a killer show left to die far too early. With a conspiracy that becomes more and more entangled as the show progresses, there are villains behind villains that will leave you reworking your own theories about the minds behind Crews’ imprisonment. “Life” never forgets to push character development nor let the story slow. Plus a partner played by Sarah Shahi doesn't hurt either. 

“The Beast."

<p>
	Patrick Swayze sinks his teeth into his role as a possibly dirty but definitely arrogant FBI agent. His performance is good enough to potentially erase the damage done by innumerable “Road House” reruns that have scarred your psyche over the years. Whether Swayze’s character, Barker, is playing the <a href='http://www.screenjunkies.com/tag/hardcore/' class='linkify' target='_blank'>hardcore</a> mentor to his partner or is controlling the environment around him by manipulating Ellis Dove is the core of “The Beast”. It's a great crime show on <span data-scayt_word=Hulu that doesn’t break the rules of the genre, but doesn’t get caught up in following them either.

Eureka.".

A newly minted Sheriff gets to handle all the strangeness from criminal mischief to murder. You won’t find piles of corpses in “Eureka,” but you will find plenty of whodunits. There are enough eccentric characters, crazy inventions, and smarmy criminals to keep you  entertained in this crime show. Less serial killers and more time killers, treat yourself to season four’s holiday special, “Do You See What I See” for an animation homage as well as a story worth a few smiles.

“Law and Order: Special Victims Unit."

A crime show that deals primarily with sex crimes, “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit” will give you all the gritty, bloody crime you can stomach. What other show has Ice T as an angry cop dispensing wisdom and justice? With a focused perspective on the effects the crimes have on both the victims and the detectives, this crime show on Hulu holds itself to a high standard from season to season.
