Get the funk out

Well, this recommendation comes about a decade too late, but I don’t suppose anyone has heard of the show, Funky Squad? It was a 70’s cop parody from Australia that aired in 1995. Borrowing a bit from the Mod Squad, the team of Funky Squad were sexy, young and hip undercover cops, so cool that they were able to pass undetected among kids on the street. You dig? Grant was the suave group leader, Cassie the brains and beauty…rowr, Stix the kick-some-ass hero with the Afro haircut, and Poncho was a brainy, mute with electronics savvy (he lost his tongue stopping a bullet with his mouth). Of course, they all answered to the Chief, an intense and dramatic senior officer. Flares, tank-tops, paisley shirts, tasselled waistcoats, disco hairdos and all the other elements of early 1970s fashions were exploited to absurdity. If you can find it on the net, I highly recommend checking it out, you’ll laugh your ass off. Steve Irwin, rest in peace.

Anyone who can wear those shoes with that outfit, should have to stop a bullet with their mouth.

Hi... I just fell in here through Google. Please excuse the linkspam, but feel free to check out the Funky Squad Episode Guide I put together a while agowhen I was on a major Funky Squad kick. Great show and unfairly forgotten. It's not as good as DVD release would be, but it'll do!
