Police Story

Show Summary

Police Story was created by former Los Angeles policeman Joseph Wambaugh. After retiring from the force, he wrote two highly successful novels about police operations, The New Centurions and The Blue Knight. He served as consultant on this show to ensure its authenticity. The stories probed with the psychological problems and effects that police work had on the force. Three episodes of Police Story went on to become serieses of their own: Police Woman, The Return Of Joe Forrester, and David Cassidy - Man Undercover. Although Police Story was an anthology, several characters occasionally made return appearances. The most notable examples are Tony Calabrese and Bert Jameson. The realism and exceptional story telling made this the cop show of its time.

  • Best Police Drama of All-time!

    Talking about the best cop and crime show, probably Police Story would be the first on my list! Compare to other police drama primetime, this one simply stood above them all! Each week episode is so prevailing that leaves a countless impression to its audiences and number 1 fan like me! It was credibly the first police drama the really tackles the real life of a police showing their strength and weknesses. Pete Malloy was my fave character of the show. I'm glad that the DVD boxset I bought from DVDBOOTH .com was supplied with great packaging and top-rate quality! I'm very thankful because I've been looking for this DVD copy for a very long time. This Police Story boxset will be surely a treasured keepsake for every Police Story supporters like me!moreless

  • This show brought us into the life of LAPD officers in a way no other show has done.

    Great Show the writing and acting were some of the best ever done on TV. It remains one of the top shows in my book.

    A smart network would bring Police Story back to it's line up. To do so would ensure future generations would see this show and would come to apprecate great writing and acting. Mor over they would be treated to a fine show to boot.

    I believe a smart network would bring Police Story back to ensure a strong spot in their line up. Please can we get someone to listen to us? Does anyone know if Police Story has been released on DVD or Video Tape? And does anyone

    know who produced this show?moreless

  • A fantastic cop show from former cop turned writer Joseph Wambaugh.

    9.4
    A fantastic cop show from former cop turned writer Joseph Wambaugh. More than 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
