"They said f*** officer Garcia?".....and then he goes running after them..
That scene killed me as well........

Great show, I loved the outrageous traffic stop of the boyfriend on the 9/10 show. "Which of the 12 steps is the 3 pounds of marijuana?"

I just watched this show for the first time this morning (one of my partners tapes the last episode and brought it in). This show is so freakin' funny. Although they have pushed the outrageous to the point of absurdity, it's amazing how close they got the actual tone of cops behind the scenes. I can't believe I missed this show for so long.

I love this show! Ive only seen 3 episodes though because I forget what time it comes on.

But I saw the last show and when that dude was with the prostitute, I couldnt stop laughing. Than the fight with those people and the "quiet guy" gets thrown through the window and than they want to reinact it. Classic.

The ep. with Dangle in the beauty salon.

When does this show usually air again? Teusdays right? Is it rerun on any other days?

I liked the savenger hunt episode for the death row execution tickets! My favorite part, was when the female cop pulls over the red car. She steps out of her crusier to write the ticket, and then her car start rolling back. She locked herself out of the car, so she jumps on the hood trying to stop it. The small red car takes off.

Then later she's sitting on the side of the road, and a car pulls up to help her out, and she gives a ticket for picking up hitchhikers. Then she makes him drive her back to the police station in his car.

It is probably more funny watching it, than reading my description of it.

Oh man. New episode. You gotta love this show.

They go to arrest this old flasher guy and they let him go into his house to get dressed, then he takes off on a scooter. Lol.

Anyone else think it would be cool to see Dangle and Weigel go undercover as a couple of high-roller types, like, say, Mr. and (the former) Mrs. Laupin .....

Garcia's 15th anniversary show was the best; when Jones asks Dangle and Garcia for 350 bucks during the prostitution sting, i was literally laughing my ass off.

Yeah, this show is decent. I'll admit, before the series started, I thought the commercials for it made it look like garbage, but it has turned out okay.

it's good, but I never remember that it's on during it's time slot, and I have no vcr so i cant tape anything. I usually catch the repeats on the weekends though. I believe they are on around 11 or 12 noon on sundays right before nfl.

Was it just me or was Weigle playing the prostitute that the one cop had to take out for lunch? I don't get why they did that.

they did that because it's some kind of comedy group. The main group does a lot of the additional characters, I believe the mime was Junior.

Great episode, had some great moments. I still like last weeks, unintentional double-slap and Amy Grant.

You're right. It wasn't until yesterday's show that I realized Wiegel plays the crack-whore Jackie. And yesterday also had Garcia and Johnson playing the Irish couple doing the "ahem" in their pickup. As for Junior playing the mime, if that's him, I never picked up on it until Birrman54 mentioned it. Thanks!

well I'm not 100% sure, but if you look closely the mustache and everything seems to add up.

Also usually when they blur the face it means that it's a member of the main cast.

That blurring is what tipped me to realize they were the main cast. But they've shown Jackie before, and I don't recall her being blurred then...

I thought this ep sucked. It had its moments but not near as funny as some of the other stuff.

I picked up on all the blurred out people being the cop cast. Except the mime though.

I'm still laughing at Jones going undercover as Josephine Baker with the belt of bananas.

Great episode. I thought I was gonna die when Jones said I'll try anything once.

Circle the wagons.

all the stuff w/ Jones in the jail w/ the police explorers was awesome. "his belt buckle was so hot, it slid right down and cauterized his balls."

Even FUNNIER was the "NEXT WEEK" preview where Dangle is out of work and it is explained that "he can't walk"!

Odd episode though - felt like there were a LOT of ads and no through line except Dangle moving (which involved none of the other officers).
