Backup (1995– )
User ReviewsReview this title
The second was Colette Koo, who played PC Susan 'Bruce' Li. Colette played a groundbreaking role, not only a Chinese-English character, but a female one. She was an inspiration, but unfortunately her character didn't appear in season 2. I emailed Colette about 10 years ago and she kindly responded, saying that audience focus groups thought a Chinese-English police officer was unrealistic, so sadly the powers-that-be caved into political correctness and axed PC Susan Li. I mean really, audience focus groups...you have to chuckle. Really, I didn't hear any audience focus groups complain that the Nazis in 'Allo 'Allo! weren't played by Germans.
Sadly Colette passed away in 2010, succumbing to cancer.
Backup should have run for more than 2 seasons. It deserved better.
