in the mood for love
I think this show does a good job of balancing the 2 without making it just another show where the genius is doubted by the higher ups and he has to break the rules to prove them wrong.

Yes, ia! I love that about the show. I hate how Sherlock makes the cops seem like idiots on Moffat's version and the constant scheming to defy the higher ups on the Mentalist is annoying.
