Police Woman Fan Tributes18 Howie from Netherlands: i love the beginning tune of the series. I wonder who the composer was and if he made more tunes.
17 kenneth a jones from greece: when police woman was on i used to go into manchester and watch her at w.m.c.a because my parents thought it was to violent but it was great and i never missed one especaly the intro when she dived on the guy into the fountian i think thats the one when she was at the school
16 brian allan from north west: I love police woman. Angie is the best. Those 70's cop shows are awesome. I remember an episode where Angie is held from behind while another bad guy slaps and punches her. Can anyone remember the name of the episode or the actor who played the bad guy?
15 Jonathan from Cincinnati, Ohio: This show is amazing. I love the story lines and most of all Sergeant Pepper Anderson. She was smart, brass, and funny. She was feminine but kicked behinds when she needed to. We need to bring back more seasons of Police Woman.
14 Carol from Florida: I love "Police Woman". Angie and Earl were so charismatic together, and I loved their chemistry and playful banter. I would like to know where I can see seasons 3 and 4. "Police Woman" was one of the best cop shows of all time, for many reasons. Angie was gorgeous, too.
13 SgtAnderson from Minnesota: I love Earl and Angie together, especially in stuff like the Ice episode, going undercover as married. I wish they had done something outside of PW as they mentioned in the commentaries. Help us get more of the series by writing:

12 jeff macdonald from seattle, Wa, USA: I fell into infatuation with Angie when I was around 12. When my mom would go out leaving me alone in the apartment I would leave the door open and BLAST the morton stevens theme so everyone would here. I thought that Angie was so amazing she was a strong figure for me and I couldnt help but watch her EVERY move I was hooked! at 44yrs I still Adore her.
11 Toni from USA: On your site you list Pepper's (Angie Dickinson) real first name as Suzanne. Did you know that her first name was Suzanne only during the pilot episode of POLICE STORY, THE GAMBLE. When the show aired under its own title as POLICE WOMAN her first name was changed to Leanne.
10 Starr from USA: Of all the TV shows aired in the 1970's this one was the most realistic... even with the restraints placed on the producers. It was a hit show then and now and I love watching every episode you air!! thank you
9 Jason Legrand from London, England: Police woman was in my opinion the best cop show drama on tv back in the 70's.
Watching it again after all these years it still a thrill, still exciting and still nothing has come along as good and original in almost 30 yrs.Fans of the show may be interested to know that the original episode is avaliable on dvd as part of the"Greatest 70's cop shows collection"(Region 1) Lets hope this leads to the entire show being released in its own package.In the meantime we can enjoy the Granada's run.
8 marla leech from san francisco: hey folks, I'm searching for a copy of Flowers of Evil episode to use in a class I teach at City College SF on gay representation in t.v., and we cant' get it here in US. any thoughts? thanks!
7 marky from the ole' USA: The first season of "Police Woman" was just terrific TV: well acted, well written, directed like a movie, ironic endings. They even had a way to make Peppers' go-go dancer assignment legitimate-- and how? All of the above.
The show was weakened shortly into the 2nd season as there was a LOT of pressure to "tone down" Angie. Okay, perhaps we didn't need to see a lot more undercover hooker scenes (they'd done that more than a little the first year) but they shouldn't have muted HER and her natural charisma, for that's part of why the show worked (at first). The 2nd and 3rd years had about 50% of their episodes hold together. For me, most of season 4 was a bit too cartoonish-- like perhaps they were stooping to "Charlies Angels" a tad.
But I LOVE the show as originally conceived! And of course it had one of the all-time great TV themes, as it was composed by the same man who wrote the "Hawaii Five-0" tune: Morty Stevens.
6 kevin paynter from bournemouth: Fantastic to have the gorgeous Angie back on our screens. In the mid seventies I used to hurry back from my paper round every friday night to watch Police Woman on ITV. I had to watch it on a tiny black and white set as the rest of the family watched Starsky and Hutch on BBC1.What a joy to now watch it again in colour and I really hope you show all the episodes as some have never been shown before in the UK.
Thanks a million for taking me back to those happy days.
5 CHRIS CLAZIE from LONDON: Many,many thanks for showing this second season of Police Womman.I think this second series was probably the peak of the programme,when everything gelled.My favourite episode was shown on Monday.The Purge,with Crowley framed for a crime he didn't commit,and Pepper doing her best to prove him innocent.Excellent.The third season was perhaps the weakest.At the time Angie had run into marital difficulties with her husband,Burt Bacarach,and consequently had less screentime than previous.The fourth season was a marked improvement,with Angie back to normal,and the stories more interesting.
4 Karl from Boston: I liked the show, but I confess my favorite moment was seeing Angie's beautiful legs at the beginning of each show, descending from the stairs in a dress.
3 jullie howells from tiverton: Great to see Police Woman back on our screens - I was a big fan in the seventies and had forgotten how much humour there was in the series. When is the next series being shown?
2 caroline horlock from christchurch dorset: I used to watch police women every week when it was on in the seventies .I loved the theme tune and always wanted to get it on tape
