In 1988, Leslie Nielsen starred in "The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad". As its title indicates, the film had a predecessor. The original series, called "Police Squad", lasted only 6 episodes, before being cancelled.
As many will agree, the series, and its brilliant humour, were ahead of its time, and were lost to many. After the first film was released, the ratings, and reviews, soared sky high, leaving people to wonder what they had missed.
"Police Squad: The Complete Series" brings together many of the humorous dialogues and background gags that the public had come accustomed to through the Naked Gun trilogy.
As stated by others, the series require multiple viewings to catch all the gags, and will no doubt have you laugh yourself in half, time after time again. Because just like the film trilogy, the gags never get old. Never.
