A "street smart cop" show
20 April 2004 | by whoTheFuqRyouSee all my reviews

New York Undercover was one of those shows that I used to watch religiously, I was 14 when it first came about - but now that I look back at it, I see that these cops were ahead of their time as they were able to blend in with the urban society but at the same time faced tribulations that regular cops would face. But then again, what the hell do I know about being a cop? not much, but since cops have to "do their job" in the urban areas, they have to blend in...

The live performances fit in pretty well since it's at some big time nightclub which the cops use for their hangout spot. My problem was that FOX completely started to drag the show toward the end and eventually got it cancelled...

thanks for the memories...
