    I'd love to see COPS go to a channel like FX where they could get away with a bit less bleeping, etc.

    LOL... my post here reminds me of "The Situation Room" sketch from this week's SNL. Very prescient. :)

    In any case, I wish FOX would just cancel it already so someone else can pick up the show. There's no way that someone won't buy it... as they said in the article, it's got definite brand identity that some cable channel would love to have.

    Alaska State Troopers is a good substitute while we wait for more Cops.

    ok this is bizarre...when you add a SP thru the internet it should be on the bottom of the priority list, right?

    when i got home it was 36, which leads me to believe i had the pass all along, which makes sense since i watched it last year

    so why didnt it record so far? ugh

    Almost in...
    They haven't had new shows for quite a while, so you must be set to only record new shows.

    FOX now airs various sporting events (MLB, NASCAR, NCAA Football) on Saturday night. COPS was picked up for this season with a shortened order, but it's basically a bench-warmer for right now.

    It's a good show (along with Wild Justice which rides along with California Fish and Game wardens) but it's not the same as COPS. Those shows are narrated and quite heavily edited, making them more documentary-like. There is also the heavy use of stock footage for dramatic effect, such as seeing what appears to be a Crown Vic as it is rolling Code 3 down the highway, but then the Trooper being featured shows up in an Expedition or a Charger. Wild Justice is the same way as well.

    COPS is like giving one of the officers a camcorder (right down to the grainy, shaky video) and telling him to film what a day in his boots is like. There is no narration beyond a little bt of the officer(s) explaining what's going on to the viewer. It's a lot closer to what you would see if you were on a police ride along.

    Thanks for the reminder about Vegas Strip. I thought I had an SP set for it, but somehow I didn't.

    I am surprised at how many people they let go without a ticket. It really seems to be based on how the subjects react to the cops. If they are polite and follow directions (and have no warrants) they are generally let off without a ticket.
    But if they cop an attitude, all bets are off.

    Sweet!
    I'm hoping for a taser right off the bat. I love it when they fall like a tree after fighting so hard.

    And if you add a K9 unit segment, it'll be an instant classic.

    Well, this episode was both taser and K9 free, but there was the zebra rampaging through the Sacramento suburbs! And all it wanted to do was go skinny-dipping in the pool.

    The suspect in the Toledo segment had THE most annoying voice I've heard in a long time. If anybody should have been tased, it should have been him :p
