Cool Fantasy About Cool Cops
26 February 2018 | by Mister_D_LoomisSee all my reviews

Mod Squad was just cool in a depressing, melancholy way. Bathed in a beautiful score of music and the nooks and crannies of Southern California city life during the late 60's, early70's. They tried to depict the grittiness of the culture as carefully as possible for prime time television and it was clear they tried to illuminate a certain morality without getting preachy or freakish.

The characters displayed action and excitement in every episode with punches, drop kicks, kidnappings, substance abuse, car chases to name a few while bringing it all down at the end with a simple mosey into the sunset by Linc, Julie and Pete to a fabulous jazzy crescendo "la lala lala lala lalalaaaaaaaaaaa"
