Car 54, Where Are You?, the TV comedy series about a mythical police station in the Bronx, was created by Nat Hiken in 1961. It's just appeared for the first time on DVD to the delight of fans, including critic Lloyd Schwartz.
Shawn Ryan's first series, The Shield, starred Michael Chiklis as a corrupt cop. His new series The Chicago Code is also about cops — but this time, they're honest. And TV critic David Bianculli says the heroes (played by Jennifer Beals and Jason Clarke) turn in very strong performances.
Actor and comedian Anthony Anderson has played characters on both sides of the law. He's gone from a ruthless gangbanger on The Shield to a traumatized cop on K-Ville. Now he stars as a detective on Law & Order.
