Vexed on Netflix is terrific. Not the best Police procedural, but pretty funny Brit show.I almost hate to admit it, but I watch all the European cops shows now, even subtitled. They are more realistic, the characters are believable, not super-hero tough or super-model looking. Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue used to be decent, but hell that was decades ago.
I just caught a few of these the other day. Good old Davidson County, NC (right down the road from me) was on some of them in the late 90's/early 2000's, back when Sheriff Hege was in office and deputies wore all black BDU's with shoulder patches that had "KATN" on them (short for "kick ass, take names"). The sheriff carried an MP5k, drove an Impala SS (with nitrous tanks added on), and pursued and rammed suspects off the road for any violation. It's amazing to see how much has changed in the same area 20 years later. None of it would fly now.Been on an old school cops episode trip lately. You can find them on YouTube. I'm sure a bunch of the geezers on here wish they were back in those days.
That show has got to be the most depressing of them all! But, it was a great series, with great acting. Unhappy Valley.Speaking of Brit shows, check out "Happy Valley". Great series about a small town cop in England, very enjoyable to watch. That, and "the fall" is great too. I still get a kick out of seeing the british issued fixed speedcuffs in action....
Best episode was when the fake psychologist was interviewing the cops and the Hispanic cop and the big dope were acting like a married couple. It was on too short a time and only resurfaced once on the now defunct Trio network.Bakersfield PD.
Hands down funniest cop show since Barney Miller.
I liked when Chris Mulkey smashed the car window and extolled the quick reflexes of the little kid locked in the car. That show was REAL.Best episode was when the fake psychologist was interviewing the cops and the Hispanic cop and the big dope were acting like a married couple.

Yes. I agree. It ended up being a girl with serious mental health issues. There was so much BS fluff in there that it was obnoxious.I’ve learned not to waste my time on any show that allows “amateur detectives” to stroke their ego and spout off complete bullshit based on absolutely nothing. The Cecil mini-series was a great example of this.
