Picks and Pans Review: Arresting Behavior
Reality programming has become so entrenched in the TV landscape that now we even have spoofs like this six-week sitcom, which is Cops meets Keystone Kops.
A camera crew follows around the police force of sleepy Vista Valley, Calif., whose members are played principally by Leo Burmester, Ron Eldard and Chris Mulkey.
Their squad cars won't start. Burmester gets outrun by a burglar carrying a bulky television set. Mulkey is such a hothead that he's under a restraining order not to come within 600 feet of his two young sons.
Once you get through the sad-sack premise, the humor is often obvious and overdone. But the show is well-acted and once or twice each half hour, genuinely amusing.
