Product description

Product Description

Six further episodes featuring the various comic misadventures of the hopelessly inept coppers. In 'That's Entertainment' Detective Inspector Beach and his team get involved in a Christmas TV spectacular. 'Castaway' finds Beach taking part in a desert island TV show. 'Raging Pig' sees the team get caught up in the fight game. 'The Leader' has Beach become involved with a bizarre mystic cult. 'Jubilee' finds the team working in security when the 'Jubilee Family' visit. And 'Operation Snowdrop' sees Beach's boys get some advice on race relations.

From Amazon.co.uk

With the seeming plethora of "fly on the wall" documentaries that abound on television, spoof police show Operation Good Guys was well timed, if not perfectly executed. Initially well observed and well received, by this third series the ideas were beginning to run dry. The programme still works when lampooning the documentary genre (the voice over and camera techniques are all cannily accurate) and there are some genuinely brilliant moments. The writers, however, appear to have lost confidence in the original idea and have been looking for more and more far-fetched plot devices (desert islands, religious cults) to bolster the material, pitching Operation Good Guys uncomfortably between satire and sitcom. Ignoring the golden rule of spoofing (play it straight, something that Police Squad did to such tremendous effect), much of the humour is too forced, too obvious. For far better television parody look to The Day Today, Knowing Me Knowing You, and People Like Us. --Phil Udell
