This strip was written about the show Castle. The basic premise, a crime fighting novice with a seemingly unrelated skill set teaches an irritated cop how to do his-or-her (usually, on these shows, her) job, is so widespread now that I’ve heard it referred to as “The Castle Formula.”
They’ve announced a new Star Trek series following the life of a now much older Captain Picard. As I said on Facebook shortly after the announcement, I sincerely hope it follows the Castle formula. I’d call the show Murder It So.
If I were writing it, there’d be a retired Borg who lives nearby, and Picard would always try to pin the murder on him at first.
