Yeah, I read a ton. And I like a lot of the character driven crime novels EL is known for. And a lot of the authors I like and respect seem to worship "Dutch." But I find his books pretty "meh!"

Re: the OP - I tried to get into Deadwood, but never got hooked, and I never tried The Shield. So, different tastes...

And the characters I was trying to think of were Limehouse and Quarles... So many others. I had forgotten Margo Martindale, Amy Steenburgen, and Sam Elliott were recurring characters. Maybe I should rewatch the series...
I used to be disgusted.
Now I try to be amused.
