Best Reality Program- EVER!
22 March 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There's no doubt that COPS is the best (ever!) TV reality program.

It's been around for years, and will be around for many more years to come.

Forget the hype. Forget the staged drama and props- this is the real thing.

If you've been hiding under a rock and have no clue what this program is about- a TV crew does "ride-alongs" with the Police from all around the USA. It give us a first person view of a day (or night!) in the life a cop.

It has been interesting to see the changes in the type of events they're being called to- I'd guess that almost 99% are in some way, shape or form are related to drugs. The offenders have either just used, just purchased, just sold or have in their possession or in their car, something to do with drugs! Amazing to see how common their use is....

Great program and hope to see it for years to come. :)
