"Chicago FIRE!"
"Chicago Law!"
"Chicago E.R.!"
"New York City Lawwwww!"
"LA FIRE, by Chicago lawyers who fight.....LAWWW!"
"Chicago E.R.!  With doctors who fight FIRE.....with LAW!"
"E.R. Lawyers who fight the Law.....with law....and....fiiiiiiiiire!  In CHICAGO!"

"one of which is a reboot of Wolf's '90s cop show New York Undercoverthat would see Malik Yoba and Luna Lauren Velez reprising their roles from the original.."

Velez and Yoba were both looking unhealthily obese last time I saw them. Are we supposed to suffer watching those two wheeze through their scenes for 25 eps?

Deadline's new story says that SVU showrunner Warren Leight has since admitted that Hate Crimes would be a better fit for a streaming service since-as Deadline puts it-"the language that people use when they commit hate crimes is not acceptable for network television."

Yeah!  What we need is another Law & Order!  With more cussing!  And racial slurs!

When I first read the headline, I thought they meant those follow-the-cops-around shows, presumably because they wanted to show that the cops who are committing crimes in the line of duty are "a few bad apples".  My next thought was, "Good luck with that, those f*cking pigs can't help themselves."

I think we need more live cop shows.  To the tune of, a cop should not be able to go on duy without the people around them filming their every goddamn move.  Live streamed from multiple angles and by many unaffiliated people.  We'll see how many "bad apples" there are - my experience tells me the "bad apples" have long ago spoilt the entire barrel.

Yeah - there's a reason you don't leave waste to compost in a wooden barrel without turning it and airing it.  The apples are rotten, the barrel is rotten and even the earthworms don't want that toxic shiat.

As they commit crimes ranging from entrapment to assault, withholding or fabricating evidence, etc., all in the name of circumventing the stupid "civil rights" laws that make it impossible for them to do their jobs.

one of which is a reboot of Wolf's '90s cop show New York Undercover that would see Malik Yoba and Luna Lauren Velez reprising their roles from the original.

Reprising their roles ... off to Wiki ... NY Undercover was about two plainclothes detectives... ok, detectives so probably at least a few years on the job already... from the 90s ... so at a minimum, 25 years on the job by now if not 30+.

So a show about two cops who haven't been promoted in 25 years doing their best to avoid anything dangerous or physically taxing until they can put in their retirement papers or conversely they have been promoted & spend their days dealing with the endless paperwork of upper level administration.  Sounds like a winner there guys, book the writers & get this done right away...

If Americans were to learn that a quarter of all scripted television broadcast on Chinese television depicted state security forces finding and punishing the cowardly and evil enemies of the people -- generally by ignoring regulations and violating due process for the greater good -- they would rightly call it propaganda and assume it was a transparent attempt to whitewash their ongoing brutal treatment of non-Han minorities and their closed-fist response to peaceful protests.

But jackboots taste better when they're closer to home I guess.
 
2020-07-12 5:17:23 PM  
Just another sad case of Hollywood no longer having the guts to try anything new, mind it's a bit more understandable on TV as they do have to attract advertisers  and get Network execs to green light it to begin with.

I won't claim to known what the TV networks ought to do but i think it is long past time to move on from cop shows.  Reality shows too.

Imagine my surprise as I was watching Snowpiercer to find it turning into a Law and Order crime drama.
I had no interest after the first episode.
I was thinking I should just pitch the most idiotic cop drama I can think of but unfortunately Satan helping to solve crimes was taken.
 
2020-07-12 5:24:56 PM  
Dramas that whitewash law enforcement are OK, but LivePD which was a 100% transparent view of law enforcement (I didn't see any of those guys kneeling on anyone's neck) is bad.

What about an action packed crime show that requires a spunky and resourceful female in a lab where she can advance the plot quickly by saying things like "it's encrypted I can't hack that I just hacked that" or "I just ran the dna trace on that sample you gave me 30 seconds ago and it matched the person standing right next to you"

Also, some of the secondary people make out with each other.

Also, some of them make out with each other.

People are talking about "making out" in this thread. Now I don't give a shiat about cop shows but on a different topic, I'm watching Community for the first time on Netflix and would it have killed Allison Brie and the blonde girl Briee to get it on? I understand it's a network show, I'm not asking for softcore. But a brief make out session wouldn't have killed anyone.

I watched that movie once. There were a disproportionately large number of proctologists in that hospital.

Cop shows suck, but detective (as in Sherlock Holmes) shows are good, as are super-secret-agent shows.

Doctor shows are only good when they're House. Every other doctor show sucks.

Even House had reasons to be criticized, though:

Because it is more exciting than their daily life
crime fighting show = action or mystery investigation
Medical = mystery and suspense
Lawyers = suspense and drama

Sitcoms? Funny exaggerated look at daily life.
