In this week’s bonus episode, Roqayah and Kumars spend a solid two hours breaking down an array of historic television police procedurals and the efforts of these programs—hand in hand with law enforcement—to produce favourable media PR for policing, with specific focus on furthering the myth of the Good Cop. From neo-noir television shows like Into The Net to quirky and seemingly harmless comedy programs like Brooklyn 99, we often find there exists illicit collaboration between media and police.
