Take every wacky comic relief stereotype, give them each a badge and a gun, and put them to work at the some police station and you get THE LAST PRECINCT, a quirky POLICE ACADEMY knockoff starring Adam West (BATMAN), Ernie Hudson (GHOSTBUSTERS) and James Cromwell (L.A. CONFIDENTIAL), as well as Randi Brooks as Mel, who - as near as we can tell - might potentially have been the first transgender character with a leading role on a network television series.
THE LAST PRECINCT was simultaneously of its time, ahead of its time and behind the times... but was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through every wacky episode, every dumb joke, and everything about THE LAST PRECINCT that kind of works if you look at it the right way. There's a lot to love and a lot to hate about this short-lived tv misfire from the creators of THE A-TEAM, HUNTER and WISEGUY!
