I love this show- Hope it "makes" it
4 November 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was a huge fan of 60's and 70's cop shows and this show has captured the feel of those.

I graduated high school in 1974 so the nostalgia of this show is also probably a factor in my enjoyment of it. Love the clothes the cars the music.

I never saw the British version of the show so I don't have that to compare it to but I really enjoy this show and the whole retro feel it has.

Now it is telling me my submission doesn't have enough lines so I have to add some more.

OK- How about this- does anyone think the set for the detectives office looks like the one from Cagney and Lacey?
