Bulletproof follows two cops, Bishop and Pike, as they chase down hardened criminals in London's East End. On the surface Bishop and Pike have a lot in common they are cool, smart, unapologetically street-wise and tough; they share a deep, fraternal relationship - and are always there for each other. However, they come from very different backgrounds and their personal motivations and emotional lives outside the police force differ as a result: Pike is an aspirational family man, the son of a decorated police officer who's determined to follow in his father's footsteps, but not be in his shadow. Bishop grew up in care homes and on the streets, and never knew his father. Despite these differences Bishop and Pike are bonded by the same moral code and work brilliantly well together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode.
I'm of an age whom watch Sweeney and The Proffesionals. This series bring it up to date and still has the humour. It's also got 2 stars who work well with each other. It's on my planner...I hope there's a series 2!
Clarke is single and moody, Wilson is family man. They both have jobs from hell- dealing with low life's. The Guv' is carol from Easterners. She has her time cut out dealing with Pike and Bishop, as they are keen whippersnappers. If you liked the British cop shows and maybe a few yank ones , you will enjoy this.
I've read some of the reviews and most of the negative comments are just, well..negative. It is what it is. It's got bad language, chases and action. It's shot around the London suburbs. I think there's a bit of writers poetic licence but I love it!
