There is a brand new class of screw-ups at the police academy. Each week, they face danger and try not to let their stupidity get in the way as they fight crime, most times without even knowing it. Written by

Although Michael Winslow had a recurring role on the series as Sgt. Jones, there were also other familiar faces from the Police Academy movies making guest appearances from time to time. The series guest stars included:
Bubba Smith as Hightower, who had earned an even higher ranking in the force.
David Graf as Tackleberry, who had two nephews in the Academy.
I must say that this show is pretty bad. The creators probably meant well but it just isn't funny. You can't watch this show without first having seen the movies on which it was based. The only time the show becomes remotely funny is when one of the cadets or their instructors from the original academy makes a cameo. And that is why the funniest character on the show is Larvell Jones. It's nice to see that they at least kept him. But it's just not enough. One man can't make up for the flaws of the show. The jokes don't work too well, and the ensemble is mediocre. All in all, it's been done before and better, I might add, in the movies. Bring back Steve Guttenberg and make Police Academy 8. Anything is better than this!!
