come on, nobody knows? maybe it wasn't actors, maybe it was regular people. but i don't think so. and maybe it was just funny like in a stupid way and not in a dry way, i don't remember, Could have been either way. and i still don't know what they were, park rangers, cops, sheriff? something else? pretty positive it was a small town

Probably not it, but when I think of shows set in small towns I think of Corner Gas. That had 6 seasons though

I know it's a bit recent, and it has no cops, but could it possibly be Letterkenny?

18th Nov, 2017 04:58:47 AM

Neither of those are it, I still need help desperately

I have no idea how well this fits (I've never seen it, I literally just came across it in on a trope page tonight and remembered this query). It's set in Dallas, so probably fails the town size requirement but it was a short-lived show about cops that fits the year so I thought I might as well suggest it. Could it be The Good Guys?

Such a long shot but, trailer park boys?

bump / please help. thanks

Just guessing: Killinaskully?

3rd Dec, 2017 05:15:38 PM

still no luck. i keep trying to remember but i can't. pretty positive it was a small town, the more i think, it seems to come back as regular people and not actors. kind of every day people being interviewed almost, but maybe not, so possibly not limited to police but also townspeople, but for the life of me i can't come up with more details. it was american television.

27th Dec, 2017 03:25:25 PM

please help, this is driving me crazy

30th Dec, 2017 08:48:49 PM

i've googled everything i can think of from it and i get no useful results, i can't take it anymore

Is it the Red Green show? The timeline might be wrong (It ran from 1998 to 2006 but I think it's still in syndication in some places).

21st Jan, 2018 07:41:31 PM

I still need help, The show i'm looking for is not anything that has been mentioned yet. Red Green show is great though.

Sounds a little like “Northern Exposure”? But was from the 90’s

I'll throw in Bakersfield P.D., but again it was from the '90s.

Try a show literally called "Small Town Security." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_Town_Security) I only remember it from clips on "The Soup," but it checks all your boxes. (Reality show, small town, American, kooky people in interviews, etc.)

OMG!!!!! I just found it!!!!! It was called small town security! I’m so fucking stupid and couldn’t remember shit about it that’s why my hints were useless and why it took me SO LONG to find it, I can’t fucking believe it, thank fuck! Only downside is that it’s not in demand, not sure how I’ll find episodes, I guess that’s my next project. Jesus Christ!

24th Mar, 2018 10:31:04 PM

And of course when I find it and log in here to post, someone else answer it two months ago lol thanks wish I had come back here earlier

24th Mar, 2018 10:32:28 PM

Literally found it on my own 5 minutes ago before posting here ROFL

24th Mar, 2018 10:36:36 PM

  • On demand, not “in” demand. Screw this P.O.S. phone

1st Apr, 2018 08:42:45 PM
