5.0 out of 5 stars Cover me!, 15 Mar 2000
This review is from: Police Squad: Volume 1 [VHS] [1983] (VHS Tape)
This is the TV series that spawned the excellent 'Naked Gun' films, and it's very amusing. Leslie Nielsen plays Lt. Frank Drebbin, a straight-faced and unknowingly incompetent detective who is constantly assigned mysterious cases. There were only ever six Police Squad episodes made, and this tape contains the first three: "A Substantial Gift", "Ring of Fear" "Rendezvous At Big Gulch". At least, I think that's what they're called - you never know because the episode title that appears onscreen and the title spoken simultaneously by the narrator are always different! The running jokes are unsophisticated but always funny: Drebbin smashes into a pile of dustbins whenever he pulls up in his car, and on a number of occasions he tells his partner 'Cover me!', and is subsequently covered... with an overcoat!
