Good for a quick memory or two, but that's about it.
3 March 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

Of all the shows I watched as a kid, "C.O.P.S." definitely falls in the bland category; simplistic morality and cookie-cutter cops and robbers (complete with clichéd dialogue - everyone's "copper" this and "citizen" that) and the animation's surprisingly lazy. It's ideal for small children.

Speaking of which, this is one hell of a toy commercial. Every character comes with just the right physique and gear to make for a kickass action figure. And that opening sequence is one tantalizing vehicle after another. Man, I still love the Ironsides unit (louvers!) and I always took to Long Arm (grappling hooks are cool).

It doesn't do much for me now, but that classic '80s consumerism is on full display here.
