Ditto for other commenter's
I'll repeat the comments made by the others. It was an extremely clever and original idea that I'm puzzled that, first, that it didn't attract as much interest when it first aired, and second, that it didn't get picked by anyone even as cable channels proliferate.

The key feature of the show, to repeat others, was that it assigned the viewer to the role of the unseen Rookie, following around the veteran hard-bitten detective as he went out investigating murders. The show was extremely quick-paced, as it was fit into a 30 minute time slot, and had certain comic elements that made it a quasi sit-com in certain sense...although cop shows about murders isn't exactly comedic material, I suppose--but, hey, it worked!

Maybe it's just us handful of oddballs, but if there're enough of us, maybe we could petition Fox so they might release it in DVD some time in the future?
