The Star Cops are made up of officers from all over the world, including Aussie Pal Lenzy, Russian Alexander, Japanese Anna, and American David. Despite the premise, the Star Cops didn't do battle with extraterrestrial invaders; instead, they investigated thefts, sabotage, and kidnappings. Written by

I'm not very good on pool tables, sir.
I'm too much of a gentleman to make the obvious comment.
But not to *think* it!
A man's thought's are his own.
So long as he keeps them to himself!

'Star Cops' is one of the best sci-fi series we've watched in years. In the U.S. we are inundated with 'junk' situation comedies and copycat dramas, so the British shows we are offered are heartily welcomed.
We found this show innovative and very interesting. We really liked Nathan, and 'Box' was a clever touch. Even if it was just a 'crime in space' show as some people termed it, the characters became friends, and the tension and suspense were real to us. Nathan's reluctance at being posted in space was understated and believable, and made a recurring theme below each week's story. I definitely was able to immerse myself in the shows and 'become' one of the people stationed there and at risk in each episode's situation; unlike most American shows--and many movies--I wasn't looking at my watch every few minutes to see how much longer I was going to have to sit there. Thanks, U.K., for another series in the tradition of 'Doctor Who' (which is BRILLIANT). We're just sorry that it was on for only one season.
