    The songs in the pilot weren't top-notch [Randy] Newman — if you heard them on one of his albums, you'd think he had lost his touch. And if a songwriter as gifted as Newman can't redeem Bochco's concept, how will any of the other, probably lesser, talents that Bochco will employ on future episodes fare any better? It's too bad, because without the music, Cop Rock is a solid cop show.

    I don't like safe TV. I admire anyone who tries to experiment. But "Cop Rock" doesn't work. [25 Sep 1990]
