A recurring joke throughout the show, many of the characters' names (usually guest stars) are conspicuously named for very famous people, or otherwise well-known pop culture references. Notable entries: Jay Geils (J. Geils Band), Dr. Scholls, Dr. Edelweiss, Wilson Phillips, Jonathan Dough (John Doe), Kobyashi Maru See more »
If you didn't grow up in the 90s with PoliceSquad and Naked Gun this might be new and innovative. It's so close
to both that I suspect a tribute more than a knock off. The deadpan humour still works. Maybe not material to fill 10 seasons; it definitely is a good laugh.
Jones will always be hilarious. The drawback of these kind of shows is that the style becomes a one trick pony of situational humour and word games. Once you figured it out it becomes predictable. Until then it is absolutely still worth it as a 80ies tribute.
Having had my share of Flying high, naked gun and police Squad it's a little too obvious.
