->''"The line between fantasy and reality has been put in a wrist lock and ripped out of its socket. There is now a reality show about Creator/StevenSeagal being an actual policeman. Without a doubt, this idea is as incredible as it is insane. All that time we watched him play a cop, he was training to be a real cop. I can only hope all that time I spent watching ''Series/WonderWoman'' was training Lynda Carter to give me handjobs."''\\
