Cops/Live PD

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

Postby neatneatneat » Mon Aug 07, 2017 11:41 am

Just posted about Cops in the things that are legit thread and it got me curious, especially cause AC.AB and all...

Anyone here watch Cops? It's always on TV and I find myself getting sucked into it and feeling like a dumpster human.

The show Live PD that's supposed to be real time with commentators just seems bizarre, like something some tactical dork would watch while polishing his rifle.

What's the consensus?

LIVE PD is the best show on television right now

They actually just started following the police from where I used to live and arrested a dude on my brother's street that decided to sing Pearl Jam while he was being arrested.

Campus PD needs to be mentioned. It takes the only two people groups that truly irk me (cops and frat boys) and pits them against each other in real life Tom and Jerry type situatioons--Great television!

Cops is dumpster entertainment, which on some nights is the best kind. Never saw Live PD.

I wish there was a 24 hour cop channel where you could watch the early 90s episodes. Is campus pd still on? That show also ruled.

Live PD can't be Live. I wonder how long the delay is and how many camera crews they have. Typical cops are usually doing next to nothing lol

They follow 6-7 departments every night. Sometimes it's not super interesting but they have had some wild moments

Okay. I was going to say. I work with cops and 90% of the time they have nothing going on. I'll have to check out that show.

Live PD is cool, you can get sucked in quick on a good night. They let a good bit of language fly, obviously there's probably a delay of some sort, but they don't cut much that I've noticed.

They generally only follow County Sheriffs too. So they have highway incidents and larger areas to cover.

Live PD rules. Last one was a police chase with a collision, and then it cut to another, long ass police chase in Spokane where they sent a dog after dude.

It is also nice seeing the cops just letting people go if they just have a joint on them or little bag of weed. "Dude just step on that stuff and go home.....I'm not going to write you a ticket".

Live PD rules, COPS rules and The First 48 rules. Those are basically the only shows I'm watching right now. First 48 just started following Mobile, AL homicide. Lived in Mobile for like 11 years growing up.

love cops. its my guilty pleasure. alaska state troopers rules. love it when they use the moose decoys to get the hunters shooting from the road.
hated the steven seagal one. it seemed way more racist then the normal police shows. theres a couple UK versions of cops on netflix that are shit too.

in canada we used to have a show called To Serve and Protect. it had its moments but overall was pretty shitty and really low budget. it was pretty much alberta cops taking drunk native dudes to the tank or driving them home. one thing you noticed was how much nicer the cops were than on the show 'COPS' (being canadian and all)

cops is the best tv show of all time.

I have tried really hard to get into live pd, but I find it's just totally boring and lacks the pacing that cops always had.

lol @ to serve and protect, love that show. endlessfight, you are spot on re: drunk natives. sadly it seemed like they really focused too much on stuff like that and less on the more interesting stuff like pulling over viet heroin dealers with SPAM SPAM SPAM pouches full of cash and pistols. I think the best episode involved some drunk white trash people getting pulled over in a limo around east hastings.

Live PD is largely boring. They pulled someone over, asked if the dude had drugs and he was like "nah just a scale from when i used to buy meth" and the cop searched his car and they went to commercial and they came back from commercial and the host was just like "so the police never found anything in the car!" lol

Been rewatching episodes of LAPD life on the beat and that show was way better than COPS. It shows a lot more of police procedure and LA was fucking looney as hell in the 90s.

Very accurate lol

I love First 48, been following that show since 2010. Grew up watching COPS and still love it. Live PD is kinda meh.

Where?! This show was my shit back in the day. Only found a few segments on youtube in the past.


Cops has always been dope. I usually root for the criminals, tbh. But it always bums me out how stupid they can be and how they don't know their rights, often falling victim to the games police play and digging their own graves as a result.

It was on Hulu for a long time, Every episode I believe, but I think they took it off. Now I just have some random episodes from a private tracker.
