Rather weak episode in my opinion. There were no lines which stood out for me.

Yeah, it was a weak episode. You know there is a problem about an episode when the funniest part of it is the freeze epilogue. There's really no standout dialog or anything. Well there is one exchange I thought wasn't too bad:

Frank - "Now, do you think you can beat The Champ?"
Buddy - "I can take him blindfolded."
Frank - "What if he's not blindfolder?"

I like that episode. Nothing really stands out, but there are some nice visual jokes (Cover Me, and the Black and White), the lady is really cute, and the story overall is nice.

A good overall episode.

Definitely better than the previous one.
I do not know, if I should find the Japanese garden funny or offensive  :laugh:

Another good episode. On par with the previous one. I found the "sandwhich" scene quite funny, and the ending freeze frame with Norberg trying all different poses to try and fit in :laugh:

So far the best episode. A lot of funny sight gags like
- the '112' at the bottom of the door for the camera to see
- the buffet in the police station
- Club Flamingo sign

Also funny:
- The interrogation scene
- Norberg trying to fit in the freeze frame

A good final episode.
"I got men covering all the exits" :D


Final remark:
I like the portrayal of Frank Drebin in this series. Essentially a competent and serious police officer not noticing the madness around him.
Whereas in the movie series he is mostly the cause of all the madness.
