OMG! How did I miss this?
19 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

COPS is one of the 80s classics that I did not catch when I was young. Heard about it here and there and the previews looked nice. When I finally heard that Richard Raynis, Fil Barlow and Duane Capizzi et al who were behind the development of the brilliant and amazing Extreme Ghostbusters series, were also involved in COPS, I went ahead and bought some tapes.

This series is downright impressive, mature and highly polished. The characters are all very nice and interesting. All in all, an excellent production. Perhaps if it had a movie preceding it, it would have been as well known as the also good, although slightly over-rated, The Real Ghostbusters, also directed by Richard Raynis, which it compares favorably against. All of them are certainly the better ones of the 80s.

Like XGB, COPS remains something obscure and rare, but rewards he who tracks and follows it, beyond imagination. Very impressive stuff from the same clique of geniuses. Too bad I did'nt catch this wonderful series during the 80s!
