Storyline

Jack Bowman is a cop from New Orleans who doesn't exactly play by the rules. When he is sent to California on a brief assignment, he is wrongfully blamed for something he didn't do. To get out of the jam he's in, he recruits cops who are on psychiatric leave, Bullet Tingreedes, a female cop who's addicted to danger, Stanley Jones, a cop who walks around with a ventriloquist dummy and who has a short fuse when people make fun of his stature, and Toby Baker, a kleptomaniac. After sorting things out, the Chief of Police decides to form a unit with Bowman and them. And a psychiatrist, Priscilla Mather keeps an eye on them. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Funny show - not given enough of a chance
18 December 2002 | by (Minnesota USA) – See all my reviews

This show has been off the air for many years but I just have to say I liked it! I was a funny show and I feel it was pulled before it had a chance to really gain a fan base. Wish I could find it in re-runs but it was not on long enough to get syndicated. Mores the pity.
