All my father seems to watch is Cops and its British equivalents 'Police, Camera, Action', 'Street Crime UK' and 'Booze Britain'. Why? Because he has the IQ of a battery hen.
I hate them all vehemently. Cops (the American one) makes me feel so sorry for the Yanks..how people that stupid can be made policemen is beyond me. And as history has taught us, stupidity and guns don't mix. Cops follows some trigger happy, hick police pulling out their guns for even the most minor of infractions. Bound and gagged on the floor, the suspects are still 'resisting arrest' and justifying a beating. Now and then though you'll see something exciting like a death or an intelligent cop.
The UK versions however are on the other side of the awful spectrum. Every episode follows our society's drink problem. Bouncing from Birmingham to Manchester to Basildon, rounding up paralytic halfwits, fighting in the streets because 'he looked at my bird'...while peroxide blondes pull up their knickers and stumble around clucking, in a mini-skirt and boob-tube at 4 degrees C. Every scene ends in the same drone 'The suspects were given a warning and later release without charge'. And I guarantee you will hear the phrase 'WOT? I AINT DONE NUFFIN! FACK OFF YOU PIG! I AINT DONE FACKIN NUFFIN'
I don’t want to see this on TV, I can step into my local town and see this whenever I want! Stop making television about the benign everyday happenings of society...my kitchen cupboards need replacing, why don’t we make a documentary about that?
NB: My kitchen cupboards were given a verbal warning and later released without charge.
