A 90-minute shootout that never makes us care who lives and who dies. In attempting to send up a cinematic cliché, this only becomes a tedious example of same.
Just Airplane and Police Squad! alone provide a trove of hilariously deadpan moments. Surely, Nielsen will be missed.
I love how you can hear in the title the emphasis on the On Ice, as if it had an exclamation point after it and it was the guy who did the opening-credits voiceover for Police Squad: In Color! intoning it. It’s nice to know that kitsch is global. Maybe it’ll be the one thing … more…
I kept expecting to hear, with every episode of *M Squad* I watched, the voiceover guy saying, “*M Squad*! In Color!” over the opening credits.
It’s probably a good thing that there isn’t, cuz the culties would be disappointed in this new *Starsky & Hutch.* The only thing that’s even remotely ‘Starsky & Hutch’ about this goofy adaptation is the red and white Ford Gran Torino.
