Best Reality TV Show EVER!!!
21 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Score - 9 out of 10 This show is just as good now as it was when it first came to us in 1989. It's surprising how stupid some criminals are, especially those who try to flee from the police. Idiots! So many people who were going to be pulled over or taken in for misdemeanors end up getting arrested for a felony for attempting to flee from police or lying to the police about something minor.

This show is humorous, dramatic, intense, educational and entertaining. How many shows can you say that about? This show is simple and they haven't tried to change the formula or format of the show. If it's not broke, don't fix it. Cops rocks and I enjoying watching the reruns on court TV.

Love it!!! Keep up the great work! Thanks to all the men and women in law enforcement! You are a hero!
