Ep.163 – COPS No. 5 (1988)

A Bowser and His Blitz

Jun 14, 2021

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée stop and frisk 1988's COPS no. 5! In the distant future of the year 2020, a crack team of law enforcement agents have banded together around a single noble goal: To shove another half-baked franchise in front of millions of impressionable children and cash out before the Supreme Court shuts this whole scam down! In this issue, canine unit officer Bowser is bummed because his robot dog got blown up, which is especially scary because that guy is a psychological minefield even on a good day. But don't you worry, because if there's one thing the police know how to handle, it's the de-escalation of delicate mental health episodes with compassion and tact. The boys in blue'll unload 40 rounds into that pesky psychotic breakdown faster than you can say, "Zyprexa"!
