It has a huge amount of fun toying with private eye cliches, and is surprisingly good and mixing the serious and the silly. The tone is rather buffyish - snarky and cynical, but the subject matter is a little more grown up and the writing a little sharper.
I've devoured Dexter and Weeds as well
Not that bothered about West Wing, although it was good. Saw most of the first series of Deadwood and really liked it, but not that bothered about it. I'm probably wrong about that... And the Wire I started once, but as is known it's something you have to watch close together, in big chunks, as you lose track quickly, and that put me off.
I'll look into Veronica Mars again but I've got this idea in my head it's like Buffy Lite, but more detecting and no monsters. Am I close?
After starting to suffer from Battlestar Galactica Fatigue, I discovered I'd 'aquired' the first 2 seasons of Veronica Mars and never quite got round to them. Bloody hell, it's surprisingly good. It really is smarter than I was expecting, and a lot seedier as well.
It's also good to see that the 'shocker' hand signal has made it into US teen shows.
