Quick Thoughts: Between this and Walker, Texas Ranger, I would like to lobby for the return of Martial Law starring Sammo Hung. I remember very little of this tv show except at some point they added Arsenio Hall to the cast. Anyway, bring back Martial Law. Or don’t. Make a new show.

…but if you’re not gonna make a new show and just reboot weird 90s cop shows, do Martial Law.
