Television visionary Steven Bochco produced the iconic legal shows HILL STREET BLUES, L.A. LAW and NYPD BLUE, but he also produced one of the most notorious TV failures in history. It's called COP ROCK, it's a serious, hardboiled social issue series with confrontational storylines about racism, sexism and police corruption, and it's also a weekly musical with songs by Randy Newman!

It's become one of the biggest punchlines in pop culture history, but is it possible that COP ROCK was... canceled too soon? Film critic April Wolfe joins our regular hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold to unearth this bizarre piece of TV ephemera, analyze the best and worst songs, and consider the possibility that this supposedly embarrassing series is extremely underrated, and decades ahead of its time.

    I figured out how this could be done as a season-long anthology show like American Horror Story.
    Season 2 - DOC ROCK!
    Season 3 - LAW ROCK!
    Season 4 - G.I. ROCK! (or Sgt. Rock if DC allows it)
    Season 5 - CAPE ROCK!

    So each season tackles a new TV genre through song.

    How this could work as a season long anthology show? Season 2 - DOC ROCK!
    Season 3 - LAW ROCK!
    Season 4 - G.I. ROCK! (or Sgt. Rock if DC allowed it)
    Season 5 - CAPE ROCK!
    And each season they take on a new TV genre and explore all the tropes through song.
