The little show that should have...
22 August 2000 | by (Racine, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Star Cops is something of a rarity, and it should be noted as such. It sacrifices glitz and glamour for plot and character development, something a lot of 'critically acclaimed' sci-fi shows lack.

While like Doctor Who or Blake's 7, it did have it's budgetary constraints, and that is probably why the 'story before effects' way of writing developed. Something that can be applied to modern TV, overall. Unfortunately, flashes and bangs win out every day on American TV.

Want a good explosion? Turn on Star Trek. Want a good story? Make it worth your while to track down this overlooked gem.
