Welcome to "Someone Has to Review It!", hosted by Brandon Bentley and Jesse Fresco. This show takes a look at movies and video games, new and old, dissecting them for viewers to get a better idea of what they're in for. Enjoy.
In what must have been one of the shortest lived series on network television, "Cop Rock" was part "Real Stories of the Highway Patrol" and part "The Sound of Music". After chasing down a criminal, the force would take to the street for an organized dance number, then haul the guy back to HQ. This may have been the only series to have been based on a Broadway musical format.Written by

OK folks. Take it from someone who KNOWS what good is! "Cop Rock" was a VERY good show! It was just ahead of its time. The acting was excellent and the music was great! Randy Newman wrote the theme and I feel it was one of his best compositions. The plot lines were just as good as "NYPD Blue", another great show. Unfortunately, the American public is just not capable of accepting something "different". And most of the "critics", (by the way, who ARE these people? What makes them so special that they get these jobs?), trashed it from the beginning and didn't give it a chance. And of course the American public, upon reading these reviews, followed the critics like a heard of cattle, thus killing a show before it had a chance. And the network caved under pressure. Thank God a network like NBC didn't do that to a series that did terrible in the ratings, but stuck by it. Do you all remember that series? Does "Seinfeld" ring a bell? I doubt that they will put those few episodes on DVD, but if they do, I for one will be buying it the first day it comes out.
