NBC next Thursday in the berth that had been the home for 'ER' (which ended tonight). In fact, its producer is John Wells, who oversaw 'ER' as well.

So I just finished watching the episode. As far as the TV Universe goes, it was pretty realistic. But it's just not something I'll be watching on a regular basis; in fact, I'll probably treat it like 'ER' - tune in if an interesting guest star (or one of my friends) shows up in an episode.

However, I did get a theoretical Toobworldly connection out of it. After the rookie Ben shot down a cop-shooter, his mentor asked him where did he shoot like that - "At the Beverly Hills Gun Club?"

There used to be a Beverly Hills Gun Club indoor shooting range. There's now a blog using that name, since 2007. It served as a location in the movie "Beverly Hills Cop II". But for Toobworld purposes, I'd like to think that his character of Officer John Cooper was referring to a movie by that name, written by Adam Rafkin and produced by Peter Dragon - as seen in the TV series 'Action'.

Also, it's pozz'ble - until some future episode when it could get disputed - that Officer Cooper is the son of John Cooper, as played by Bo Hopkins on a few episodes of 'The Rockford Files'...... BCnU!
