Not much for unexpectedness, but entertaining enough…
16 June 2008 | by (Luoyang, China) – See all my reviews

I live in the middle of China so I don't get to see shows like this very often except when I'm back in the states visiting family, like now, but I've had a soft spot for these amazing videos shows ever since I first noticed how captivating live coverage of police chases in my native Los Angeles was, and then discovered COPS. I haven't seen more than maybe a dozen episodes of this show, but I've seen enough to know that the videos are often groan-inducing or genuinely frightening and are almost always ruined by the goofy narration. Like John Walsh's goofball, wildly over-dramatic narration of America's Most Wanted, the videos, even the really amazing ones, are almost always accompanied by laughable descriptions, which leave me with the feeling that if you took away phrases like bone crunching, or battered bodies, or narrowly escaped, or lucky to be alive, or watery grave, well, they just wouldn't have anything at all to say and wouldn't that just make for a completely different show. But either way, you can hardly do better for a lazy Sunday afternoon. If the show seems repetitive, you watch it too much. Otherwise, enjoy!
