this show is off the hook, it is so fascinating to watch the shows! very riveting and absorbing and all the vignettes and interviews are very good. the highlight are the 20 "best of" episodes of the entire series. it's very interesting to watch how the show evolved from the first episodes in the late 80's to the late 2000's. a must have for "cops" fans!

""COPS" is fairly raw, so it's not for everyone. When drug addicts fight with the police and are too stoned to feel the blows of the nightstick; when drunks butt their heads against squad-car windows, trying to injure themselves; when feuding couples flail at each other, ignoring police threats of pepper spray or deadly force; I can't help but remember some lines from Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov, from the "Grand Inquisitor" story. The ascetic, cassock-clad GI looks at the Lord Jesus and laments, "Thou hast seen these 'free men.' Yes," he says, "We have paid dearly for 'freedom.'"
Cops invites each viewer to ride in the back seat of a squad car. Vehicle pursuits routinely reach 100 mph. The vehicle crashes and the pursuit continues on foot. Inevitably weapons are drawn, with the usual screams, "Show me your hands!!!" Expletives optional. It's a unique experience.

"Absolutely awesome! Description on back a little misleading and I wanted a little more then what I assumed was on it, but am still very happy I made the purchase and it was cool to see the behind the scenes too."

"I've been a fairly regular viewer of "Cops" for some time now, so I was curious to see what they'd do with this 20th anniversary double DVD edition.
It's excellent value. The selection of incidents from the show's seasons is absorbing and informative. The special features, including the pilot show, are very good.
I always marvel at how patient and good-humored the officers shown are. Of course, they might not be when the cameras aren't there...
