Cop Rock - The Weirdest Idea for a Telivision Show Ever

So I just discovered that this failed show called Cop Rock exists. It aired in 1990 and had only 11 episodes.

This show is bonkers.

Its a mash up of a Police Procedural and Musical. MUSICAL.

I have only just seen clips of the show but I am amazed that something like this could ever be made and air on a national network. But I'm glad it did. It is amazing.

Who would think this is a good idea? Who would approve it? I know it was 1990 but even still...

Do no deprive yourself of at least watching a few clips of this show, its worth it. Please check out this clip from the show, a musical number called "Let's Be Careful Out There".  You wont regret it.

    Stoners. Back when I still smoked a lot of weed and regularly dabbled in psychedelics this would've been the ultimate show.

    Apparantly you think it's amazing as well, so I reckon I may give it a watch anyway. God, I hope they read someone their rights in soul or funk form.

    EDIT: Dat Hammond organ solo! This show was made for me and my friends :)

    Omg I remember that show. The 90s was such a different time, haha.

    Sounds like a show that would pop up at the tail end of the crack epidemic.
