COPS was certainly interesting the first couple of seasons but they've stayed with the same formula far too long. There is a limit to the number of car chases and doorknob busts someone can view with interest.
One of the many reasons I would not want to earn my living as a cop.
This is pretty much what you're in for from graduation day at the Academy
until retirement. Spaced out with long boring stretches sitting in the car,
B.S.-ing with your partner and eating donuts (a part of the routine that they
don't generally show you on COPS).
I would not have the patience. I would likely shoot someone before they got half
as stupid with me as you see them behaving with the police officers on this show.
