FtL 430 – Power Cop

An old cop who’s sick of getting shot ends up in “Die Hard on a TV budget” with *record scratch* a LADY COP who *record scratch* can KICK ARSE?! Also 101 EPISODES OF FAILURE TO LAUNCH!

This week in our 101st EPISODE EXTRAVAGANZA (whoops) we treat ourselves with a locally-shot action extravaganza: Irresistible Force, a.k.a. POWER COP.

Detective Stone, who’s too old for this shit (i.e. getting shot on a weekly basis) is thrown into a Die Hard Lite™ hostage situation with a brand new partner, rookie cop and all-round arse booter Charlotte “Charlie” Heller, played by 90s straight-to-video action star Cynthia Rothrock. There’s an angry chief, a weiner kid, a by-the-book, pencil-pushing, city-hall-will-have-my-arse lieutenant, and even a surprise guest for us Aussies! What a way to celebrate 101 episodes of Failure to Launch! Certainly better than some Friends rip-off.
