Am I watching a different series to everyone else?

Am I watching a different series to everyone else?

I just watched the 1st episode, and didn't know whether to laugh or cry! Who writes this drivel, who casts? I decided to watch the 2nd episode, just to see if it improves....it doesn't!

I just cant take some of Reece Dinsdales lines seriously. He is cast as some kind of "hard" copper ala Regan of the classic Sweeney, but he comes across as a kitty Kat. Can anyone. Tell me If It Gets Better? Then there's the dress code of some of these "coppers". One guy looks like he would be more at home in the centre of the ring at Billy Smarts, with a big red nose.....he already has the striped trousers! Seriously folks, if anyone can tell me this gets better, I will give the 3rd episode a go.
