I have a soft spot for television shows with immortal, male protagonists. I really enjoy the characters who are old-fashioned romantics of an impossible age. They are dark, brooding, solitary and cautious. They either avoid romantic entanglements or are forced to leave out a lot of personal information due to the complicated nature of their lives. They always have a single confidante who knows all their secrets and regrets. As a day job, they tend to fight crime. I hold in my heart a special affection for three particular shows featuring such characters. Each one managed to live only a single season on television. Their cancellations broke my heart. However, they live on, immortal in my memory.
