Storyline

Paul Gigante leaves the FBI to be a detective for the rural Bakersfield, California P.D. But the sophisticated Gigante (Giancarlo Esposito, Do the Right Thing (1989)) has more trouble trading opera for the Bakersfield Sound, than he imagined. To his bored fellow officers, especially not-so-good old boy Denny Boyer ('Chris Mulkey' of Twin Peaks (1990)), the professional, dedicated city slicker's way harder to figure out than even the most diabolical cow-napping. Written by David Stevens

Sign the DVD petition!

I've got a petition going and will be regularly emailing Fox for a good reason why we can't get this great show on DVD!

Here's the petition link: www.petitiononline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?bpdondvd

Sadly my memory of it is fading - I rely on friends to remind me of the great bits. How sad is that?

And all the time, Fox have got the tapes somewhere, gathering dust. Since axing this Fox have discovered the power of DVD to bring back shows - like Family Guy - so if they released this it might not only be a success, but it might be successful enough to warrant a new series!

Come on Fox! You won't even have to do any advertising, the whole internet word-of-mouth thing will sell thousands of copies.
