    Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

    I put off watching this show. But today is a day off and I have no errands. So I went to Hulu and started watching it. I'm seven episodes into it and for the most part it's a pretty funny show. I have to say there is much about the depiction of cops and the work that is dead on. Yes it is a sitcom and yes it takes poetic license, but it isn't anti-cop and in it's own way it portrays officers in a positive light. It reminds me of Barney Miller and the first three seasons of Hill Street Blues (when it was still good). I was pleasantly surprised.

    My wife and I started watching it, and I can just about identify every character on there with someone I work with.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I myself, differ significantly from the captain on that show. For one thing, I'm white, and for another, I'm married.(to a woman.)

    I have a B.A. (history) I enjoy collecting classic firearms and researching the history of various firearms and calibers. I then lecture my fellow officers about such topics. As a result I'm one of the department's "oddballs", but I've had other officers come to me when there are questions about a firearm. So far I've been able to identify a few pretty obscure firearms. They call me Cliff (the mailman from "Cheers") only my trivia is right. Yeah the show is exaggerated, but it's also on the mark.

    I should introduce you to a couple guys on my patrol team. Every time I turn around it seems like they're building another AR-15 type rifle.

    I DVRd the pilot and .the next one. Watched the pilot and got about half thru the second. Couldn't take it any more. It SUCKS and a complete waste of space or time.

    You, sir, obviously have no comedic taste!

    I did a few years ago. She carries it as her patrol rifle.
