Does COPS count?

I’m not sure about the worst, but The Wire is the best cop show ever, hands down.

Cop Rock was probably worst TV show ever.

TJ Hooker: worst

Barney Miller: best.

Hill Street Blues gets ‘honorable mention’ for best.

I couldn’t get into The Shield at all. I know a lot of people think it’s a good one, but I didn’t like it.

I’m not sure which one I would say is the best.

ucme's avatar

@knitfroggy I kind of figured that out ooh, all of ten seconds in.

@FutureMemory Ahh, Shatner’s wig won a Golden Globe for best supporting actor as I remember.

21 Jump Street

i can’t remember a single episode where my dick wasn’t in my hand.

@knitfroggy beat me to it. Cop Rock was bizarre.
I can’t name a best.

Hill Street Blues broke some new ground in its day and set a standard for the genre. It has been superseded by others since.

Barney Miller was the best police comedy.
TJ Hooker was the worst.
CSI: LV is not strictly speaking just a cop show but is excellent, despite acceleration of scientific results
NCIS is a particularly engaging cop show.

I really really loved the first few seasons of 24.

@Dr_Lawrence Great minds think alike :)

The Shield.

Vic Mackey is the ultimate badass.

Man, I think I’ll put the old box set on.

I used to really like Hill Street Blues.

Barney Miller and now there is Castle. I dont like those CSI things, but Castle keeps my interest.

The Andy Griffith Show- best

Mtl_zack's avatar

The x files is the best! FBI agents investigating paranormal crimes

Zaku's avatar

The Streets of San Francisco was a good one.

Austinlad's avatar

For drama, my favorite cop show of all time was“Homicide: Life on the Street.” Great scripts, great actors, great scripts. For comedy, hard to beat “Barney Miller.”

aprilsimnel's avatar

Yeah, Homicide, except, if you can count The Wire as a cop show, then I’d pick that one, and I’ve only seen one episode!

The worst? Cop Rock, of course.

SABOTEUR's avatar

Another nod to The Wire and Homicide.

YARNLADY's avatar

I thought Hawaii 5–0 was pretty bad, and Knight Rider was hilarious.
My favorite was Spenser for Hire, and I also liked the original A-Team.
I watched Miami Vice in re-runs for a long time.
This season, I love Castle and The Mentalist.

Cruiser's avatar

CHIPS was the worst but the occasional short-shorts beach babe made is almost watchable. almost

Dr_Lawrence's avatar

The Mentalist is delightfully quirky.
The Closer is great fun.

mattbrowne's avatar

One of the best: Life.

Zaku's avatar

Other good ones:
Prime Suspect
Da Vinci’s Inquest
Hill Street Blues
NYPD Blue
The early seasons of Law & Order
Taggart

aprilsimnel's avatar

Prime Suspect is really good, it’s true.
