Storyline

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 Michael Silva <silvamd@cleo.bc.edu>

User Reviews

I absolutely loved this series
22 May 2004 | by canurl82meSee all my reviews

I thought this was a series, finally that had depth and was made to entertain and move one emotionally, without so many talking heads but through music. Every song was approbate and expressed so much of the true human emotion.

I will never forget the scene with the girl on the bus bench when she sells her baby for dope. Alone she sings an amazing song. I had seen so many depictions of dopers and horrible mothers but never had I felt the depth of emotion that this scene brought me.

I think our general public was just not mature enough to realize what was really going on with this show! I only saw each episode once but they were so compelling that to this day I well remember much of them.

I would really like to get my hands on the VHS and/or (if made) DVDof any or all of this series.
