Is this so bad it's good, or simply bad all around ? Bizarre TV series blending a cop show like Hill Street Blues with musical numbers! I remember it was called one of the worst in history.
The first half of the 11 episodes suffer from some pretty bad songs, but they get better on each show.
Kathleen Wilhoite (she was the waitress Carrie in Road House,1989,with Patrick Swayze) is a junkie mother and if that is her actually singing, she has a good voice.
We are given the impression that the actors all had stage theater experience and are the ones actually singing... man, somebody should have stopped them as it's crappy-type rock or crappy-type show-tunes. If you are into gospel and soul music, those songs/singers don't seem too bad (but I am not into that genre, so am not a good judge of it).
The topics covered here are police brutality, spousal abuse, racism, drugs, cop killing, etc. This was before the Rodney King and L.A. riots happened, so it is kind of interesting to see what a fictional police unit based in Los Angeles was like before that happened.

What is this?! How was this how ever made?! Who really thought this was a good idea even with a Randy Newman score?! And yet it's hard to look away.
