    What, no Reno 911?

  2. #2 |  William | 

    Another vote for Reno 911. Cops suck. I remember watching Miami Vice as a kid and hoping the drug dealers would win because Crockett and Tubbs were mean.

    And no Cop Rock????

  4. #4 |  Sithmonkey | 

    Yeah…why no Cop Rock?

  5. #5 |  Jerri Lynn Ward | 

    The Andy Griffith show.

  6. #6 |  Lee | 

    I concur…Cop Rock needs to be included.

    I have fond memories of watching Cop Rock during grad school. We made it a point to have a few beers prior to the show starting :)

    No ChiPs? Erik Estrada rules, man! The highway chase senses were a genre in their own right.

    Surprised Homicide ranked so low. I didn’t vote for it because the last season was a fuckin piece of shite, but the first 2 seasons of that show were THE best TV ever.

  9. #9 |  Jeff | 

    T.J. Hooker

  10. #10 |  Douglas Lorenz | 

    Hmm.. No CSIs, and only one “Law and Order” listed…

    Also, “Alias” isn’t a “cop show”…

    Um, no Police Squad?

    Anyone who doesn’t say The Wire is wrong.

  13. #13 |  claude | 

    One more write in vote for Reno 911.

  14. #14 |  incongruities | 

    What about SWAT?

  15. #15 |  Jason | 

    Reno-nine-eleven

  16. #16 |  Kwix | 

    I second T.J. Hooker. I mean, what’s not to love about The Shat?

  17. #17 |  Hannah | 

    I’m with Russ on this one. Homicide was great until they started brining in what I term “pretty people” for the detectives. Plus I’ve lived around Baltimore so I’m a bit biased. It wasn’t for Homicide I’d have voted for the Wire. Sadly I have no cable, so I wait until it comes out on dvd to see the new season.

    “The Blue” (Pacific Blue)

  19. #19 |  Mike Leatherwood | 

    Dragnet, Starsky & Hutch, of course Cop Rock (which actually had good stories if you put your fingers in your ears), and Adam-12 are missing……

    Homicide, definately. L&O being #2. Besides The Wire (at least by what Ive read anyway), the rest are mediocre to crud. The Shield was just depressing and rage inducing (for various reasons).

    Alias wasn’t a cop show. It was a spy/action “drama” that was good to great the first season and went down hill from there. JJ Abrams quite honestly could get “Lost” from tv/hollywood. Overrated hack.

    The Wire is a prefectly acceptable choice, but it’s a crime not to have Andy Griffith on the list.

  22. #22 |  Dewb | 

    The Wire may be the best TV show ever, but is it really a “cop show”?

    My vote in this category would go to Sledge Hammer!

  23. #23 |  patrick | 

    21 comments and nobody got around to Sledgehammer?

  24. #24 |  CK | 

    Thank you Patrick. Sledge is the true american cop.
    And my own preference, since the statist L&O is on the list, would be to include Perry Mason. Isn’t it humerous how every lawyer show on TV is now a prosecutor’s show. Can’t even find Perry Mason reruns, to tough to edit the show down to the slider size of the current “hour” TV show.

  25. #25 |  Jon H | 

    21 Jump Street?
    Car 54 Where Are You?

    Does Walker, Texas Ranger count?

  26. #26 |  nugget | 

    Andy Griffith all the way. A true peace officer if ever there was one.

  27. #27 |  runcible | 

    Although I voted for “The Wire”… I’ll always have a warm spot in my heart for “Barney Miller”. It was more realistic than most people will ever know.

  28. #28 |  Mike Cane | 

    The poll is invalid. It doesn’t list “EZ Streets.”

  29. #29 |  Chance | 

    I like “The First 48″ on A&E myself.

  30. #30 |  Phelps | 

    I’m torn between TJ Hooker and Reno 911.

  31. #31 |  Alex | 

    No Andy Griffith?
