Too bad they cancelled it so early. My favorite episode was when Detective Cosby had a lottery ticket and was sitting behind that bulletproof glass, and he was talking to the guy who wanted to kill him, and the guy who wanted to kill him thought he could shoot him, and then Det. Cos kept ragging him on, and then the guy tried to shoot him! but the glass was there. Then the cops came and nabbed him.

Another episode featured Detective Cosby eating some hoagies, but his wife told him not to because he had to watch hi s diet, so the Cos hid it underneath his sweatshirt and ate it in the bathroom. Excellent show!
