Storyline

Cuffs is a fresh, authentic and visceral drama that will take the audience on an exhilarating ride through the challenges of front-line policing. Adrenalized and vibrant, the show is packed full of dramatic incidents and colourful characters. From a booby trapped cannabis farm in a suburban semi to an elderly farmer's wife with a shotgun, the stories are surprising and exciting. There will be more absurd altercations - such as a middle-class dog-napping or fisticuffs between pensioners - as well as the daily grind of speeding drivers, city-centre shoplifters and Saturday night drinkers. Written by Tiger Aspect Productions

Most original and magnetic program in years.
13 November 2015 | by gilesb-30738See all my reviews

First 5 minutes I thought "I'm not watching this" and the next 5 minutes caught me. Absolutely. Clever-smart.

This is a wonderful cross-over of (perhaps only) British black humor and the serious world of police work and its diversity, violence and opposition to violence, social and mental problems, politics of policing, and the personal. You need societal knowledge and empathy to understand all the links.

The USA police, maybe the whole nation, should watch this series because the underlying message is so positive. and so negative to US policing methods today.

Please. Laugh and cry, enjoy.

This is extreme, but I think the best since Monty Python.

As an aside, of course, I think we have a peak of British TV scripting, directing, cinematography, acting going on, and this comes out near the top.
