Cop Shop

Show Summary

Cop Shop could perhaps best be described as applying the format of The Box to Division 4. The result was a twice-a-week one-hour serial in which the day-to-day work of the cops shared equal priority with (and very often took a back seat to) their tortuous private lives. Although production values were at times sorely lacking (as with most soaps), Cop Shop gained much from some excellent character roles, particularly J.J Johnson (Peter Adams)and Constable Roy Baker (Gil Tucker). Cast-wise, it benefitted from the presence of former Crawford cops including George Mallaby, Terence Donovan, and Alwyn Kurts, ably assisted by relative newcomers such as John Orcsik, Paula Duncan, Nicholas Eadie, Alan Fletcher, and John McTernan. Guest roles were populated by some of the best actors in the country, as a browse through the episode guide (very much a "work in progress") will show.

  • A pretty decent cop show.

    8.2
    A pretty good cop show. If this is a show that you do not normally watch and you are sitting at home with nothing to do, you are going to wish you had it on tape. Having it "on tape" had become the generic term for recorded programs. Today you are more likely to have the show on Tivo or DVR than VHS, or god forbid Beta!! It is kind of like how a lot of people still call CD's "records" or "albums." Anyway, back to the show. This is the type of show that is really pretty good if you would just give it a chance. So on those cold, lonely, rainy days, pop in your tape or DVR or whatever if you were smart enough to tape it. If not, check to see if it is on as a re-run. After all, as they say, if you have never seen it, it is new to you.moreless

    Aussie TV we want on DVD

    What better than some home-grown TV shows on DVD to take you back to the days of after-school slurpees, Saturday mornings in your jammies, or when your favourite stars were fresh-faced newbies? These series haven't been given the chance to fit the bill yet.
