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

Fun and a bit foolish
24 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

Paul Gigante, a successful D.C. police detective, has to leave town with his son for the middle of nowhere, i.e. Bakersfield. He joins the Bakersfield P.D., a loose organization of weirdos & imbeciles. His partner, Wade Preston, is a TV cop show fanatic and tries to act like the TV cops; the desk sergeant actually runs the department because the captain can't make any decisions; and a macho cop is teamed with a mildly effeminate partner.

Like "Frank's Place", another great TV comedy that bombed in one season, "Bakersfield P.D." had no laugh track; you have to find the jokes yourself. This misfit comedy was at least as funny as "WKRP in Cincinnati"! Why do so many really funny comedies bomb?
