I've got hooked on episodes of the fly-on-the-wall American TV show Cops. (It's showing in the UK on some obscure channel on Sky's freeview package - I forget the name.)

I don't know what it is about the programme, but it's very addictive. The theme tune is catchy too.

I saw The Minority Report for the first time a couple of days ago - I noticed they had it running on a TV in the background. Made me chuckle.

The criminals are always really dumb too - as are many of the police - it's a very funny programme.

There's another programme which I also love, World's Wildest Police Videos. (Showing on Men & Motors.) I love the presenter on that programme. He always the most sensationalist commentary on the situations: "He's got his kids in the back of the car. They're screaming to him, daddy please stop, please let us out. Don't kill us daddy!"

He's ace.

I'm sure you can tell just how bad British TV is by this testimony!

Mark watches Cops!

Bad boy, bad boy

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

Hey Mark, welcome to the dumbing down of America, and now the Queen Mothers subjects. Cops, yes addictive, 30 minutes of, I'm gald i'm not that stupid F**k. Only problem is, the fine line between you, me or the stupid f**k in the tele is very thin and moving all the time.

There's a new British programme of a similar ilk - "Cops With Cameras".

But it's dull compared to the US style. Our police are too light footed and namby-pamby. Once the US guys catch up with the crim they whip out their gun, scream at the crook to get down on the floor, and if they don't comply, they beat them up a bit and slam them to the ground.

I can't really see a 4ft slight woman (a popular recruitment category in this country) doing that to a burly 20stone bloke. Well, maybe if she had a gun, but for our guy's it's a stick and a pocket sized air freshener. (Man that stuff stings...smells nice though ).

We're a bit closer to the A-mer-kin way of doing things over here in good old Norn Iron. Cops still have guns, armoured cars etc...although since they changed the name to PSNI they've got a bit namby-pamby. I miss the old shoot first, ask questions later approach. Knew where you were then.

Well, I came from Tex-us where good ol' Georgie made it EASY to get guns. We Texuns know how to shoot a pistol, that's for d**n sure! Texus would never be stupid enough to hire a cop who didn't know how to pistol-whip a suspect.
