COPS

Posted on

Small for an official site, the online version of Fox’s guilty-pleasure docudrama is surprisingly low on self-promotion — aside from the online store, where you can buy those ubiquitous T-shirts and uncensored videos. Incorporating the grating faux-reggae theme song, the site is a showcase for creepy, jerkily shot video clips from upcoming episodes of the show. Written by Chuck Shepherd, the brains behind the syndicated ”News of the Weird” column, the Dumb Criminals section profiles clumsy losers like the woman whose getaway car stalled after she robbed a Waffle House, and the guy who stuck around the bank he’d just heisted to count his cash. To complement, you can read about the heroism of ”Top Cops” in various states. Bookmark ’em, Dan-o.
