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.
