Storyline

Paul Gigante leaves the FBI to be a detective for the rural Bakersfield, California P.D. But the sophisticated Gigante (Giancarlo Esposito, Do the Right Thing (1989)) has more trouble trading opera for the Bakersfield Sound, than he imagined. To his bored fellow officers, especially not-so-good old boy Denny Boyer ('Chris Mulkey' of Twin Peaks (1990)), the professional, dedicated city slicker's way harder to figure out than even the most diabolical cow-napping. Written by David Stevens

Please release this on dvd!
13 August 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a great series!

Really subtle but intelligent police comedy, a black cop trying to fit into a white police force assigned to a partner who was white but believed he was black.

Sounds a cliché if sorts but it really worked so well!

Both Ron Eldard and Giancarlo Esposito layed the leads superbly.

To the company who owns the rights... ....please release this on DVD asap! If this never gets released it will be an injustice!

Thanks.
