In 1990 NBC shot and aired the pilot for a buddy cop show that was never picked up.
The star was Peter Boyle who appeared as a Chicago cop who is shot dead within in the first few minutes. Worry not though for his character returns in the form of a dog. A goddamned talking dog! Oh man... the 90's.
One of the highlights of the episode is that in dog form, the detective bites the balls of a suspect. Curious is that he has not been a dog for very long, so would that have been his instinct as a human police officer? We like to think it is.
Also, had his name originally been T-Rexinski, this would've been an amazing show!
Anyway. Watch the only episode of Poochinski ever and enjoy!
