Does anyone object to me removing Castle from this list? The first half of the definition - that the show focus less on the characters and more on the crime - is demonstrably untrue; Castle's mother and daughter are regulars, and the series arc so far has been about the people who killed Beckett's mother. I'm not sure what sub-flavor of cop show Castle is (do we have "cop and wacky non-cop consultant fight crime"?), but this ain't it.

Is The Shield a Police Procedural?

I think it was an inverted or subverted Cop Show. That is, I think it was focused on the characters more than the plotlines; but since the protagonist of The Shield was a corrupt cop, it can't be a straight Cop Show.
