The funniest one-off I saw 20 years ago
19 March 2006 | by Lister_2525See all my reviews

I thought I'd put in my $0.02 worth on this show since no one else has done so yet, but honestly my views will be on the rose-coloured side of things from what little I recall of it now way back when ... it's a shame that they haven't released this short-lived production onto DVD yet. The concept of different weird and wacky personalities housed in one law-enforcement office ultimately would not have been sustainable for even one season (hence it only made six episodes before getting the axe).

As a teenager, I got a real kick out of seeing the hilarious pilot which was surprisingly another take on what the Police Academy movies and Police Squad TV episodes had already established. The basic premise was a bunch of misfits scattered throughout the police ranks, both street-hardened and rookie cops and cadets, which were put together in the last place that any sensible law-enforcer would want to work in. The various captains of each police station had just about enough of their subordinates and would do anything to get them transferred out of their offices, however these weren't your average trouble-makers like Riggs & Murtaugh who would be seen to do things somewhat excessive in the line of duty ... no, it was more like what these cops did OUTSIDE of normal working hours who would then bring these eccentricities to work with them, like the Elvis impersonator amongst others.

The only scenes that stick out in my mind after all these years is the animosity shown by a rival group of police officers who were well-funded and hence would sport the latest in technology, particularly their new police vehicles that would talk in a calming female voice (more like the one that gave instructions to James Bond in Tomorrow Never Dies rather than the one-to-one conversations that KITT provided from Knight Rider). This provided the much-needed confliction comedy that is the bain of great 80s humour whereby both parties of police enforcement would try to outdo each when trying to clean up crime. The under-funded underdogs from The Last Precinct would quite often embarrass their technically superior counterparts mainly by sabotaging or simply out-driving them (ala The Blues Brothers) whilst the new police-cars would inform the hapless drivers of what was going wrong, the funniest line being "You're whole front end is missing".

I wish I could see this TV show again even if I may find that the few fond memories I have probably don't even exist at all when I see it with fresh eyes. Nonetheless, with all the TV shows that are being released on DVD these days, the ones that died an early death (such as the recent Firefly) as well as TLP hardly ever get to see the light of day on a 5" shiny silver platter. I'd be surprised if anyone else out there even remembers The Last Precinct even existed, but I'm sure that it would only take a few people to send a request for this show to be cobbled together for the curious to rent in the weekly section of their local video shop. It may even inspire someone to bring back the "cop comedy" genre again!
