Detective shows are a tired and true part of the TV landscape. Viewers, for the most part, think they've seen it all. But they haven't seen Stumptown.
Starring Cobie Smulders and based on the comic book of the same name, Stumptown is the latest entry into the detective series pantheon, but Dex Parios isn't your typical gumshoe. Smulders' Dex is not only struggling to make ends meet, she's also caring for her brother, battling PTSD from a tour of duty and grappling with some serious self-destructive behavior. It's a far cry from what TV viewers have come to associate Smulders with.
