Advertisements Action-filled season premiere. Some of the segments seem pulled directly from actual incidents, such as the runaway car. There is a COPS episode from Las Vegas about 20 years ago where there was a runaway car behind one of the casinos, and Cooper's attempt to stop it is an almost frame-by-frame exact re-enactment of that COPS episode. Another one is the ambush of the police station. There was a similar incident at Detroit PD a few years ago and this too looks like a re-enactment of the security footage of that shoot out. I am NOT liking Lucy Liu's character thus far. She reminds me of what I see a lot in this line of work: overcompensating for being female in a (still) largely male profession. Yet, her command presence was not all that convincing, as the traffic stop of the young black male in the old Celica showed. And considering she had been nearly killed on another stop (the dash-cam footage Cooper was watching at the end), her tactics on that stop were terrible.
