Chuck and Bob: To Protect and Serve

How did I ever miss Broken Badges? This 1990 series was created by Stephen J. Cannell, who also brought us such classics as Silk Stalkings, The Rockford Files, 21 Jump Street, The A Team and The Greatest American Hero. In other words, a TV god.

Fortunately, some public-minded citizen has posted several episodes of Broken Badges on YouTube. I know I’m not supposed to encourage this sort of thing, but until somebody markets an official copy of the series, it’s fair game as far I’m concerned — that is, until YouTube yanks it. Enjoy it while you can. Among other high points, it gives you some idea of what the genius that is Jay Johnson was able to pull off beyond Soap. (At least until somebody markets a The Two and Only DVD of his Broadway triumph.)
