The location used as the Academy campus was known as the Provincial Lunatic Asylum (later known as Woodlands), operating from 1878 until 1996. "Police Academy: The Series" was one of the first productions to film at Woodlands after the asylum's closure. Several crew members believe the buildings were haunted, noting strange occurrences while on location. In July 2008, the entire Woodlands compound was destroyed by a massive fire that some believe was deliberately lit. See more »
After watching the Police academy movies over the years (those were not masterpieces, either, on the contrary), I was rather curious if this series was worth watching and if the jokes were good or at least somewhat better then those on the big screen. Boy, was I disappointed! I've seen parts of two or three episodes of this series and all I can say is: painful, gruesome, as bad as it can be! If you don't expect a comedy, the script is actually acceptable. If you see the title and look forward to relaxing and laughing, AVOID WATCHING IT! The "jokes" and "funny scenes" are so bad, they make you cry! I think even a kindergarten kid would have to give his best effort to smile once. Even Police Academy: Mission to Moskow was, as hard as it is to believe, BETTER than this.
5/10 as a series, 0/10 as a comedy series
