  • Best police movies/tv shows of all time?

    Just curious, What do you think are some of the best Police movies or tv shows ever made? Which ones came close to showing what the job is really like. How about the best car chases?

      2. Third Watch
      3. Dragnet
      4. NYPD Blue
      5. Law & Order
      6. SWAT
      7. Hill Street Blues

      2. Dirty Harry (all)

          The New Centurians was, I think, one of the best. It showed the rookie being broken in by a grizzled vet. Pretty real, not farfetched hollywood b.s. How about one of Kulvinski's (George C. Scott) Laws: "If a guy uses his hands, you use your stick. If he uses a knife or club, You use your gun and cancel his ticket right there!". The chase in "The seven-ups" (around 1972 with Roy Scheider) was awesome. They actually did the scenes for real from NYC over the GWB into Jersey, no special effects, just good stunt driving. They can never do anything like that again these days. Bullitt was pretty good story, and the chase stands alone. It makes you wonder why we can't find actors like Steve McQueen these days.

            Best TV shows? IMHO

            Homicide - Life on the Streets & Hill Street Blues

                Its probably not exactly the type of filem your talking about...

                But if you ever get the chance to see "dirty war" id thoroughly reccomend it.


                Its about a suicide bombers attacking present day London, england and the Police response.

                Having just left the cops in London and moved to the states i assure you that you wont find any film that better documents the Police, respnse, policy etc.

                Well worth seeing...

                      So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven!

                          I like all of them for the most part, but my favorite is "The Shield".

                            For cops on TV, the Police Story series, from the 1970's.

                            One cop movie that doesn't get much mention is Don Johnson's 'Dead Bang.' Rent it sometime.
                            "You're never fully dressed without a smile."

                            Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

                            Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.
