Canceled Too Soon #98: Cop Rock (1990)


Steven Bochco may be famous for creating the hit legal television shows "Hill Street Blues," "L.A. Law" and "NYPD Blue," but he's infamous for creating "Cop Rock," a television series that combined hard-hitting police drama with campy musical theater. It was one of the biggest pop culture punchlines of the 1990s, and now... it's an episode of Canceled Too Soon!





This week, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by critic April Wolfe, the host of Switchblade Sisters and Who Shot Ya?, as they run down all the best and worst qualities of one of the most notorious TV shows ever made, with epically bizarre songs like this one, aptly titled "Baby Merchant."
