Im not to sure on television in other countries. But Australian television is full of crime shows for hours each night on each network. Such shows as
-Law and order and Law and Order SVU
-Crime Scene Investigation
-CSI Miami
-Forensic investigators
-Real life murders.

The list just goes on. Are crime shows popular in your countries television?

My pesonal belief is that these shows shouldn't be on television:
a/ they pollute our minds
b/ show ways to outsmart the police and get away with crimes.

- Walker: Texas Ranger
- In the Heat of the Night
- CSI
- Forensic Files
- History's Crimes and Trials
- Perfect Crimes
- COPS

And to answer your question:

COPS is staged in away (they always have more officers off camera, no way they can get backup in seconds like that) and they also never film with agencies with less then 1,000 officers so its not an accurate view of police work. It also leaves out the hours of paperwork they have to do for an arrest.

I have heard mixed reviews on CSI and if it helps criminals or not. Most US law enforcement agencies lack a CSI type division. Ill try and find an article I read about this.

I HATE Law and Order. Just HATE it.


I love Monk though. I can't wait for the new season to start.

Its the same in India and the Middle east as well, thanks to Rupert Murdoch.
But some of these shows also depict the law enforcement in a good light, that they will catch the bad guys at any cost. So its alright.

I guess its a break from Hollywood which portrays cops as evil, racist, corrupt criminals.

I am actually a really big fan of Hollywood, I don't know why people criticize hollywood so much. Some of the stuff they make shows the effort involved.

I've heard many people talking about crime, confusing the fictional crime shows, and the 'true" crime shows that rerun the same episode over and over, - with actual crime. They know it happens all the time, because they've seen it on TV, remembering how many times they saw it - but forgetting they were watching reruns or fiction.

well, sir, i have to say i dont think it is about "yin" and "yang", it's not this " balance" we are talking about, the " balance" i mean is that the huge socienty and the necessary profit, kind of basic survive and the " crime" behavior. these phenomena have to exsit in a way.

Best Old Skool cop show IMHO.


The had a Law and Order Los Angeles? We have Law and Order U.K. over here. Kinda good but not the same. Both The Shield and The Wire were great shows but I really like N.C.I.S. and N.C.I.S. Los Angeles with seasons 8 and 3 coming soon to my local library. I will watch till my eyes bleed. If only they had Magnum P.I. Now that was a bitchin show.

Does Barney Miller count as a cop show?
