Male that loves this female driven drama

With the two main actors actually being actresses, this show is obviously pointed to get there main audience from females. But as a 41 year old male, I must say this is one of my favorite tv shows. Not only a drama, it has it's share of comedy, suspense, and action. Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander are a perfect combination as the two main characters. Not only best friends in the show, both work together. Harmon as a homicide detective and Alexander as the chief medical examiner. The show did lose some of its luster when they tragically lost great supporting actor Lee Thompson Young to suicide. He played Harmon's partner detective Barry Frost. Still a great TV show that guys should not be embarrassed to watch, lol.
