Cop Shop - Volume 01

Product Review (submitted on 4 June 2017):
Excellent move by Crawford's to release Cop Shop on DVD, A top notch cast with George Mallaby (Glen Taylor), Peter Adams (double J) and Gil Tucker as Roy Baker to name a few. A great snap shot of Melbourne as it was in late 1977- early 1978. The streets, shop fronts, the cars, the fashions and the attitudes that prevailed, some of which would not be politically correct today. Highly entertaining. The stormy relationship between JJ and Valerie, Tony Bonner's character Don McKenna's ongoing tussle with his manipulative wife, played by Louise Pajo and Snr Sgt O'Reilly's continued exasperation running the manic front desk of the uniformed branch. Baker's appearance later in these episodes only makes his job more challenging. I eagerly await the next volume.
