Cops on TV

I would like to take one small second of your time to point out another fallacy on movies and television. Almost every single male cop has a messy place, in an incredible apartment with an awesome view of the city they protect. And plenty of beer in the fridge. (That last one is true.)

They never show the handsome cop living at home, or in basement apartment 12 miles outside of the city. Cops can't afford views. I wish I was a TV cop.

I saw this again watching the movie Ice. Hard to call it a movie really. It is very, very bad. And I love it very, very much.

Grant Show is the star of that movie. GRANT SHOW. Is this the only thing he's done since Melrose Place? Poor Graham. But look on the bright side-- maybe now you can have a view.

Do you still have the uniform? How 'bout the gun? ~Tory

I was watching "Sea of Love" on the Encore Drama channel the other night and noted that Al Pacino lived in a real shithole, though with a good view.

Yes to the uniform.
No to the gun.
