TV Tuesday

Whether it was Barney Fife with one bullet in his pocket, or Lt. Columbo's "Just one more thing…", we could be sure in the old days that TV cops would wrap everything up neatly in 30 to 60 minutes. These days it may take a few episodes, but TV's top cops still manage to right most of the world's wrongs.

1. Who is your favorite (past or present) TV cop? Robocop, and after him, probably Cartman.

2. Which TV cop do you think was the most crooked, or the most inept? Definitely not Robocop, probably Andy Griffith. You could tell Andy's on the take what with the lack of criminals in his jail.

3. Which TV show had the best ensemble cast of police officers? C.O.P.S.: Central Organization of Police Specialists, and after them, maybe Cops.

~Bonus~ You need to hire a bodyguard for yourself. Which TV cop do you choose? Ray 'Big Bossman' Traylor.

Thanks for playing… Let's be careful out there!

....and as a special addendum, I give you TV Last Tuesday:

Game Shows have kept us playing along for years… From What's My Line? to Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, we watch, yell at stupid contestants and generally feel superior, because we could be doing so much better! So let's see, do you have what it takes to play the game, or are you the Weakest Link?

1. Is there a game show (past or present) you think you would do really well on, as a contestant? Caesar's Palace (I think that was the name of the show, it was a bit like Jeopardy, only with a casino theme, complete with giant slot machine.

2. Is there a game show you think is the stupidest thing you've ever seen? The aforementioned Caesar's Palace, due to the exceedingly simple difficulty of the questions and overall halfassedness of the show in general.

3. Is there a game show you watch, but don't like to admit to watching? (A guilty pleasure!) That Street Smarts show, but I can't take it for very long periods of time, but what I watch I like, mostly the really stupid people trying to guess how stupid other stupid people are.

~Bonus~ Who is your favorite game show host? Who is your least favorite? Favorite: Henry Rollins on Junkyard Wars, and Least Favorite is Alex 'Smug Bastard' Trebek.
