Entertainment Reviews:

Film Comment - 11/01/2006
"Each of POLICE SQUAD!'s six episodes combines nonstop absurdist sight gags, verbal slapstick, and non sequiturs with note-perfect parodies of Seventies cop shows..."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
5 stars out of 5 -- "A masterclass in deadpan surreal comedy....Simply magnificent."

Product Description:

Though it only lasted for six episodes, the Zucker brothers' 1982 television series POLICE SQUAD! left a pop-culture legacy as the show that spawned the NAKED GUN movies. Displaying the same comic sensibilities as the Zuckers' AIRPLANE, HOT SHOTS, and TOP SECRET, the sitcom parodies serious police dramas through the zany crime-fighting antics of bumbling detective Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen, who lets the sight gags and double entendres fly with his trademark deadpan style). This collection presents the short-lived but cult-classic series in its entirety for a total of six episodes featuring guest appearances by William Shatner, Lorne Greene, Florence Henderson, William Conrad, Dick Clark, Robert Goulet, Tommy Lasorda, and Dr. Joyce Brothers.
