TV gold
29 January 2010 | by robe4ieSee all my reviews

I'm going to keep it short and sweet. I realise this show was supposed to be somewhat serious. It is just so funny to watch, the talking dog looks so ridiculous it's hilarious (apparently it cost a huge amount of money also), the acting is appalling but I think this has a lot to do with the almost pathetic script which is riddled with clichés, for example "you're off the case". Although it is pretty pathetic with a poor script and horrible acting I was still gagging for more and I found it more humorous than I would most actual comedy shows. For these reasons I have to say poochinski has stolen my heart.

A real shame it didn't get made.

TV gold.
