Comic Book Cops
5 April 2003 | by SargebriSee all my reviews

How anyone could call this the best cop show ever never looked at shows like Adam-12 and, the granddaddy of them all, Dragnet. At least those shows were based in fact. The cops on this show were made out to be super heroes and it wasn't very accurate. This is the main problem I have with cop shows produced in the 1970's. Hooker is played too much as a charicature and no depth. At least the cops on Adam-12, Dragnet and, more recently, N.Y.P.D. Blue and Law and Order are portrayed more as real people.
