90s Cop Shows.
Posted 15 February 2010 - 04:13 AM
I got into Real Stories first, around 1993. Basically they had four segments, most was like a better version of Cops (i.e. with aftermaths), and the one I liked most was the reenactment of a more serious offense, with narration.
Top Cops was a good one too, probably the most intense and movielike. Real officers narrated their own stories over the reenactments (either 1 long or 2 shorter ones per episiode).
Go figure, Cops is the only one still on, and I think it's the most boring one. I wish the old school ones were still in reruns on Spike channel or something.

Cops on the other hand is about following street cops with a video camera and hearing them yell at minor criminals. somebody told me once that the criminals they yell at get paid as well to show their faces on TV otherwise the show has to blank out the face
the old audience gets a much of a kick out of Cops as they did the good stories you like
hey with the video camera angle they might have a show "dancing with the bad guys" or maybe "crooks can sing"

From what I can tell Cops only shot in major cities too. I'm sure they wouldn't risk people's safety if they were dealing with real felons. I've wondered how much is genuine too, since many criminals wouldn't consent to being filmed!

They have to get a waiver, at least. (This is true all kinds of ways... we get a waiver from kids at 20-30 events so we can publish pictures. Since it's TV I don't doubt people get paid to sign. Why else would you sign?
I'd watch that.

I'd watch that.
how about next year, american idol has a round in all the prison systems. the winners like in pelican bay could do their gig via satalite but the winners in minimum security could come to the big show....they could wear their prison uniforms
if it took off folks could buy their own prison clothing line to support their candidate like they do with football jerseys.
and if it goes they could have a correction officer division as well.
