I said that that was the case for those two shows. Not a hard and fast rule.

Sorry, I apologize for that.

Ok, meaningless side trivia......

Name the pink helicopter in the 1980s private detective show. And the name of the short lived show.

The Bond franchise would have been better if they had.  Worst - absolute WORST - actor to ever play the part.

JEW WANNA PEACE OF ME? SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE POST! And name the pink Helicopter.

Come on, half the answer of my extra credit trivia question was answered.

"Riptide" was the name of the 1980s detective show.. But what was the name of the pink Helicopter used in the show?

I don't remember having seen a full episode of the show, although I do remember watching parts of one episode where a girl with Down's syndrome described taking a sex ed class and saying, when introduced to the act, "that's exercise." It turns out she was pregnant by her boss. I remember putting it in a story about a pedophile trying to fuck a girl he met on the beach because I honestly wasn't sure how else he would have introduced the concept to a seven-year-old girl (thankfully, he jumped out the window at the end after a sudden attack of conscience). Only last year did I figure out that it was an episode of SVU. Also another episode where a twenty-something woman turns out to have been pretending to be a high school girl during a statutory rape case. It was like Maeby's subplot in Season 4 of Arrested Development, except it was played dead straight and this time, she tried to be her own lawyer.

That said, I have read quite a bit about it, but what I have read doesn't inspire a lot of confidence in me. Besides the standard trope of "cops who don't play by the rules and have an adversarial relationship with Internal Affairs" (seriously, we have decades' worth of shows and movies about this and we still wonder why we end up with police brutality, especially since they apparently did an episode about covering up the shooting of an unarmed black teen that portrayed it as a good thing mere months before Michael Brown), kink-shaming (to their credit, at least the closest thing they've come to demonising foot fetishism is shoe fetishism), and some recent episodes ripped off of true stories that managed to showcase the incel subculture and showed how idiotic they expected their audience to be, since they apparently spent a good portion of the episode thinking that the attacker called the victims "Chad" and "Stacy" because of a case of mistaken identity, and know nothing about incel culture until they search the fucking dark web. Meanwhile, in the flesh world, we see the Urban Dictionary entries for their names within the first two entries. And Chad's only at #2 because there's actually a country with the same name. Also, there's also an episode about a gang rape and there's the line "we gang-banged her Gangnam Style." Yes, really.

Honestly, the fact that it's so popular (when its 21st season starts, it will be the longest-running scripted live-action primetime series) honestly reinforces my hypothesis that people (or at least Americans) are looking for a productive outlet for their violent desires (and ContraPoints seems to agree with me, especially as she contrasts its depiction of violence with my favoruite film of all time):




If you want a police series that actually does this sort of thing right, try Dragnet. Sure, it's over half a century old (and Jack Webb has some notably retrograde views on drugs and other issues, though at least he's fairly progressive on race and, to a lesser extent, sexism, although his views on gay rights are about what you should expect from someone pre-Stonewall), but at least when they drop the ball, it's because at the time, authorities seriously thought that (for instance) marijuana led to use of more dangerous drugs or that LSD use led to birth defects. And if you know anyone on the Autism spectrum, there's a very good chance they'll love it (I would personally recommend starting on an episode that doesn't involve drugs). I know this from personal experience.

The oldest old cop show was Hawaii Five 0. In fact the new version I do believe has "Duke" one of the original cops, who was a cop in reality in the original series, does cameos in the new series.

I am still looking for the name of the pink Helicopter in the fictional detective show "Ripetide".

Ok, since nobody is guessing the name of the Pink Helicopter in the 1980s detective show "Riptide", I'll tell you. The nickname of the pink Helicopter was the "Screaming Mimi".

Dragnet had its first episode in 1951. Hell, its revival had its third season premiere the day before Hawaii Five-O aired its first episode. And my research tells me that even Dragnet wasn't the first cop show on television. The first one I found on Wikipedia's list of police shows that I would consider a police show was The Plainclothesman, but it was on the DuMont Network and only four episodes survived (and only one is even on YouTube), so it's understandable that you never heard of it.

I remember watching Dragnet in the 1960's, then Hawaii 5.0 . Magnum was a great favourite a bit later.

Australia also produced its own very popular series in late 60's early 70's, such as "Homicide" (1964-77) 

Have you researched  any early English cop shows? Eg  'Calling Bulldog Drummond' (1951) and 'Z cars' (1962-78)

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((9)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

I loved 'Moonlighting" for a long time, then went off it.  Also loved Bones until Booth and Brennan became an item and Bones got chubby.. Very politically incorrect of me, but I've never found chubby women attractive. (During those years, I was a slyph)

NCIS, . Pretty much from the beginning, because of Pauley Perette (Aby was my dream girl; kind, smart, funny and weird)   David McCallum as Ducky. He was also great in the man from U.N.C.L.E  . Then Ziva David . Could never stand Gibbs or Denozo -- I ran across Gibbs clones  far too often in the army..   A rigid personality ,and a bastard to work with.

Would have just loved to have seen a crime show starring a young Nicole Kidman. She mad one interesting TV show when she was about 22.;   "The Bangkok Hilton"

1.  The copter was The Screaming Mimi.

2.  I am unfamiliar with the film 'Scare Face'.

3.  Roger Moore was the ABBA of the film industry - both were attractive but essentially superficial, little more than lame eye/ear candy for the tasteless masses, and interesting only to those people who don't know any better.
