The Best Show of All Time!
13 July 2004 | by hutchinson_jasSee all my reviews

I was a cop for 10 years, and High Incident is the greatest cop show I have ever seen. It captured the true emotion, tension, fast pace and sheer panic of police work better than anything I have ever seen. I would drop everything to make sure I was home on High Incident night, and so did all of my fellow cop friends. It was as true to life as you will ever get. David Keith and Cole Hauser were as believable as the guys that I worked the streets with. It was truly a sad day in my life when I found out that it had been cancelled. I honestly thought that show would become a television fixture along the lines of LA LAW and NYPD Blue. Just goes to show that people don't know a good thing when they have one. If anyone knows how I can get episode copies, please post here or email me Thanks!
