Sleuth: Mystery, Crime, Justice

Sleuth: Mystery, Crime, Justice

By Garrett Godwin

The term sleuth has been defined for years.  For instance, sleuth is defined as a private investigator (private eye, private detective, gumshoe) hired to protect people where the law couldn't, taking cases the "professionals" can't or won't handle. Now, it is being define again-- as a brand-new satellite channel called Sleuth, where there is mystery and crime all the time.

Debuted this month, Sleuth airs movies and television shows that receive critical acclaim, were short-lived, and/or became both cult favorites and classics. 

Shows that are now on Sleuth 24-7:

Knight Rider: Michael Knight and his super car KITT are champions of the road and the innocent against criminals that are above the law.

The A-Team: Wanted by the Army for a crime they didn't commit. Hannibal, Face, Murdock, and B.A. are soldiers-of-fortunes/modern-day Robin Hoods that defend those who can't defend themselves.
