Three Random Thoughts On Police Squad!

Police Squad

We scooped up (sorry) a certain item on Amazon recently, and over two nights whiped through the whole thing.  We are talking about the Police Squad! dvd of the television series.  This show is a classic beyond a doubt.

Who Is It By?

The people who brought us Airplane! are the creative genius’s at work here.  The two Zucker brothers and the one Abrams non-brother produced all six episodes of this wacky parody series.  It be funny.

What Is It About?

Police detective Frank Drebin, played by the amazing Leslie Nielsen, is the straight-laced cop who solves crimes and ensures justice is done.  And every episode is a weird and wacky adventure where Drebin acts normal amidst the chaos around him.  It be crazy.

Who Is In It?

Leslie Nielsen.  The incredible Leslie Nielsen.  The amazing Leslie Nielsen.  The phenomenal Leslie Nielsen.  The Canadian Leslie Nielsen.  He be wonderful.

Funny and inventive and surreal and intelligent and well loved.  That, and a whole lot more, is what Police Squad! is all about.

P.S.  For the flipside of Police Squad! check in tomorrow for my thoughts on one aspect of this dvd which bothered me, something which many dvd’s suffer from.
