I’m abetting the Criminal Element again, this time with a look at the Australian cop series The Strip.
Imagine, if you will, that Jerry Bruckheimer was so taken by his time producing The Amazing Race Australia (yes, there was one) that he decides to create a cop show set in Oz. It’ll have all the Bruckheimerish trademarks: lush, glossy production design, lots of pretty people, less-than-Chekhovian character development, stories that don’t tax the viewers’ minds overmuch. Could it be his next Without a Trace – or the second coming of The Forgotten?
Too late, Jerry. Someone beat you to it. They called it The Strip.
