Funny site watching the women

Today one of the officers was on her cell phone talking to her finance witch is also a officer while driving her patrol car. Its amazing they were filming a officer breaking the cell phone law.

How did these women graduate grade school. They can't speak correct English. Some of them don't have the strength to impead a pickiter much less a killer. Some of them only care about how much of a man they can be. Dallas must hire on a quota system. Their only saving attributes are that have to deal with the family disputes that the real officers don't have the time or priority to.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

On its own, the show is reasonably interesting. But there just isn't much besides the officers, themselves, to create interest. And while the women are nice, decent people, they're also pretty normal in spite of their jobs. Not to mention that most crime on the show is petty and most criminals pretty pathetic -- which isn't the most interesting thing to watch. If this weren't the fourth iteration, it might be more exciting. Finally, one can't help asking -- are women cops really that rare that four shows are necessary?
