Pepper ROCKS!!!
5 November 2006 | by isisdawonderSee all my reviews

I am a huge Angie Dickinson fan. I was very young when Police Woman aired on NBC but I remember bits and pieces of it. I always thought Pepper was just tops. She had FAR more ability than the Angels did...IMO the Angels got made too easily...

I have season one on DVD and I love every episode. I know that the quality of the show went down after s1...thanks to politics and idiotic big bosses...BUT...I've seen some eps of the later seasons and EVEN THOUGH Pepper was tamer than in season one...there are still scenes in these eps where Pepper shines...in fact it seems that the most important dialogue in said eps come from Pepper....so let's not dismiss the other seasons because the quality is not as good as the first season.

Like someone else said...Police Woman covered MANY topics that were deemed risqué' or just weren't covered at that time in television. In the episode Bloody Nose, the subject is the battered husband...something we didn't hear about back then...and is REALLY just now getting news. And then I had forgotten the one with the battered wife that moves into Pepper's apartment complex.

And I like the observation someone else wrote about the little things like Pepper's condo and I would add her wardrobe...both something you'd see someone with her salary living in and wearing.

It really is a shame that this show doesn't get the props it deserves. Yes, it was flawed in the later seasons...but it doesn't take away from the fact that it was a good show with good topics...and it didn't have to get all sleazy like TV has become today.

I hope SONY gets the point and releases the rest of the seasons on dvdsets.
