It was the best cop show ever.
1 December 2001 | by blwittSee all my reviews

I really loved watching it. I loved the characters of Ponch. Jon, and Bruce. The show was really fantastic. The movie is also. I hope that they make more of them. I have the People magazine with Erik Estrada in it. I'm going to look for more magazines with him in them.
