A Touch of Embarrassment
13 September 2012 | by (N.Ireland) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of Police Squad I have to say that I found much of this show cringe worthy as it essentially tried (and failed) to remake a classic.

Some of the jokes were funny and some were not, some of the visuals were funny and some were not but one thing they all had in common is that I'd seen and heard them all before…

This show would have been very funny had it been original but if you really want to watch such comedy then watch Police Squad… or Sledge Hammer for that matter.

is this 10 lines yet IMDb?
