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>

Overview of "Life and Times" for Cop Rock
19 March 2012 | by livingevernowSee all my reviews

We watched Cop Rock from the outset and once (quickly) grasped the interplay of drama with meaningful dialogue (But "said" in Song!), details of each show were by no means diminished by the musical aspect; rather an interlude proceeding directly into some confrontation. Although removed from TV after one season, it's departure left many wondering why? Had people (critics) become So entrenched in the status quo that there was no room for very well done innovation? It was sad to realize that the viewing public and critics were so very shallow and unable to see the deeper interplay of the two genres; each dovetailing quite well with the other. There will never be another TV show as "Cop Rock" likely because so many are unable to "let themselves go" and See the entire show/plot/songs/outcomes as what was really an attempt at a new genre for thoughtful enjoyment.
