In what must have been one of the shortest lived series on network television, "Cop Rock" was part "Real Stories of the Highway Patrol" and part "The Sound of Music". After chasing down a criminal, the force would take to the street for an organized dance number, then haul the guy back to HQ. This may have been the only series to have been based on a Broadway musical format. Written by

A spectacular breath of fresh air to help fumigate the ambience that permeates modern day TV.
Yes, this series came from another world. Like other people, I also thought it was for morons only until I began to listen very hard and realized that it had that long lost quality, called originality. The trouble with the music in this production was that there were no repetitive, "Baby, baby, baby, yeah, yeah, yeah" lyrics. In fact, if you listened carefully, you would realize that the lyrics tied right in to the story line. Of course I know that understandable lyrics and melodies being played as they were written is taboo in the modern world. If you can't musically mangle the Star Spangled Banner you will never become a singing sensation. Cop Rock is like the esoteric Sid Caesar. They both catered to a very small but selective audience.
