The Hat Squad, 23 January 2006
Author: ( from United States

The Hat Squad was a great family cop show that has it's place in all of our lives in one way or another. For the life of me I don't know why they cut it so short lived. The cast was perfect, the story line was a great idea and the show was full of family values that are timeless, down to earth, and actually could be realistic for a change.

Definitely a show that could easily be appreciated even to today's TV watchers interest and standards that people from all walks of life could identify with and appreciate. When it was time to be a family, they were, and when it was time to be cops, they did their jobs even to standards that are realistic in today's world.

This show will always have the door open for reruns that will have the TV watchers begging for more.

Great Show!
