From Wikipedia

“It was announced on June 27, 2011 that Giddish would join the cast of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for its thirteenth season along with Cold Case’s Danny Pino coinciding with Christopher Meloni’s departure from the series.[7] Giddish told TV Guide during summer filming; “Everybody on the set is really excited and energized. They’ve lost a family member with Chris Meloni leaving, but they’ve been very accepting of us. Amanda is thrilled to be here working with these people, and so am I.”[8]

Giddish made her debut as Detective Amanda Rollins in the 13th-season premiere, “Scorched Earth”, in which the character first works alongside Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay). In an interview with TV Guide, Giddish said about her character, “My character is in complete awe of Olivia, Amanda’s really eager to get in there because she knows her stuff and really eager to learn. She has come from Atlanta and there was a ceiling there, so she’s come up to New York.”

From first appearance at least, Kelli Giddish looks like she would be one of the last people playing a hard-nosed ( to use a term from the 1950s ) big city police detective who is dedicated to her job as a police detective and always wants to get the bad guy or girl and protect the innocent. Especially people who prey on the innocent. Law & Order SVU, is a drama about NYPD detectives who handle sexual assault cases. Everything from child abuse rape and everything in between or even worst than those cases. So this NYPD unit deals with rapists, as well as people who sexually abuse innocent people, as well as murder them. They deal with some of the worst criminals you can possibly imagine, as well as some people who are mentally unhealthy, who commit horrible crimes.

I say Kelli Giddish and the character that she plays ( NYPD Detective Amanda Rollins ) because physically she comes off as so adorable and sweet and simply as someone who is not tough enough to deal with these cases. On the surface at least, Kelli Giddish looks like someone who would be better suited playing a heiress, or someone who works for a fashion magazine, model, perhaps one of those people who are simply famous for being famous like a heiress who spends most of their time spending away the trust fund that their rich father gave them, as well as getting into trouble. But that just goes to show you how terrific an actress that Kelli Giddish is who is someone who has such an adorable the American sweetheart next door demeanor and yet she plays a very tough NYC cop, who not only takes on the bad guys and girls, but who also kicks a lot of ass on the show.

Law & Order SVU, is a modern cop show about detectives who do a lot of leg work, as well as undercover work and are always on the move and not just investigating bad people, but taking them down. And taking down people to arrest them who don’t want to be caught. So you see physical altercations on this show on a regular basis and because of this you see beautiful, sexy women like Kelli and Mariska Hargitay ( who plays Detective Lieutenant Olivia Benson ) on the show looking beautiful and very sexy, dressing pretty casually. A lot of skin-tight jeans, boots, tight tops. A lot of times on the show Kelli looks like a Western cowgirl cop wearing a Western jacket with her skin-tight jeans and cowgirl boots. Instead of wearing a suit jacket or leather jacket that would be more common with big city cops in America.

The modern TV cop show now has a lot of women playing the top cops on the show and doing a lot of the dangerous work as detectives, sergeants, or lieutenants. Whether it’s Elisabeth Shue and Jorga Fox on CSI Las Vegas, Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish on Law & Order SVU. Which is why you not only see very attractive women on shows like this today, when 20 years ago they would be working in offices and even managing companies, but not doing physical dangerous work like working as vice detectives that they do today and doing other law enforcement jobs. Kelli Giddish, is the perfect example of what the modern TV cop looks like today. Beautiful, sexy, and even adorable on the outside at least, but very tough physically and personally and not someone you want to mess with.

Sophia Bush: Detective Erin Lindsay on Chicago P.D.

Source:Action

To be completely honest with you, I only got into Chicago P.D. the last few years at all because I saw a few reruns and noticed that Sophia Bush whose name I never even heard of before, but then got to thinking that was very familiar and then I looked up the show and her online because she looked like one of the actresses from the teen soap opera One Tree Hill from ten years earlier. A show I watched on Soap Net about six years ago and she played one of the main characters on that show. But that she was much better looking now especially sexier while still remming just as adorable as she was back 2004-05, 06, etc.

And like One Tree Hill which was sort of like for Millennial’s which I’m not what Beverly Hills 90210 ( the original ) was for my Generation X. The main if not first soap opera about that generation and it wasn’t as good as Beverly Hills and not as successful, but still a good show about that generation and I would argue very accurate as well, but how One Tree Hill is with Beverly Hills Chicago P.D. is not as good as Law & Order especially the original Law & Order from the 1990s or even Law & Order SYU. Not that Chicago isn’t a good show or even a great show, but that it’s not as good as the show that probably inspired it.

Teen soap operas regardless of the generation that they were about became popular in the 1990s. Cop shows became popular in the 1990s as well because of shows like Law & Order and the CSI Las Vegas in the 2000s. To the point that thanks to NBC with their Law & Order franchise and CBS with their CSI franchise, cop and law enforcement shows are perhaps the most popular shows on network TV right now, because of all of these great cop shows and the great casts and characters that they put together. Chicago P.D., which is a police detective show where a lot of the characters are either detectives or sergeants, but based of course in Chicago unlike Law & Order in New York.

One thing that I like about the Detective Erin Lindsay character on Chicago P.D. ( played by Sophia Bush ) if that she fits the old cliches don’t let appearances fool you, or don’t judge a book by it’s cover, or I would add don’t let the baby face fool, because she’a lot tougher than she looks. She plays this beautiful, but baby face as cute as a little girl Chicago P.D. detective and yet she handles herself with the best of them and kicks as about as well as any guy on that show. The last part might be going pretty far, because you have big strong men who are also detectives on that show, but similar to the Elisabeth Shue character on CSI Las Vegas, she’s mote than capable of handling herself and even pressing the issue when she’s interrogating witnesses and suspects and making arrests.

The modern cop action/drama show has a lot of attractive, sexy women on it who kick ass on the show and do that wearing very tight, sexy outfits. Sophia’s main outfit on that show are tight t-shirts, skin-tight jeans, and heeled boots with a beautiful body as well. She plays a vice detective so of course she’s going to very casually dressed, but that’s what people want to see with their cop shows today which are strong, tough, but very sexy women and Sophia Bush was one of the best at playing that strong, tough, sexy women on that show.

There has been a trend in Hollywood going back 10-15 years and perhaps because of the success of CSI Las Vegas and Law & Order SVU of not just crime fighting shows or cop shows, but shows like that which are very sexy and are the cast is very sexy. Very attractive with a lot of beautiful sexy women on it playing the roles of lead detectives and doing a lot of the hard dangerous work on the cases.

And when you look at their detective units where these people work at the office, there’s no such thing as Casual Friday, but instead they have Casual Everyday. Where the dressiest outfit for women there would be a pantsuit, but with boots instead of dress or business shoes. You’ll still see male detectives, sergeants, and lieutenants wearing business suits, but not so much with the women on these shows.

A common outfit for female detectives especially when they’re on the road and either questioning witnesses, suspects, or catching suspects will be a t-shirt sometimes long sleeve, but a lot of times short sleeve, with skin-tight denim jeans, maybe kaki jeans or cargo pants, with boots. Looking beautiful, sexy, and kicking ass as cops. Shows like CSI with Marg Helgenberger, Elisabeth Shue. Law & Order SVU with Mariska Hargitay and Kelli Giddish. True Justice with Meghan Ory and Sarah Lind. Saving Grace with Holly Hunter from ten years ago. The Mentalist with Robin Tunney and Amanda Righetti. Chicago PD with Sophia Bush and many other shows like that from this era.

A big part of this obviously has to do with style with boots and jeans being so popular now with women, along with staying in shape with women wanting to show their bodies off in a stylish professional way, but also because this look is so versatile and practical and women can wear boots and jeans to the office without looking too casual now. And because they’re playing not just cops, but detectives who are in a lot of dangerous situations where they have to not only catch suspects, but catch people who don’t want to get caught and have to physically confront suspects.

Beautiful both men and women in America like seeing women kick ass on TV and do it in a sexy way. The common female TV cop now is beautiful, sexy, and fairly young. Who is more than capable of defending herself who wears a lot of tight outfits which is what people want to see from their TV cops now both men and women. Gone are the days where TV cops were almost always guys and generally middle age guys who are always wearing business suits. Now the common TV detective both male and female are younger, very attractive, well-built, and sexy, because that is what the viewers want to see.

CBS: Broken Badges- Eileen Davidson Stars: As Officer J.J. Bullet Tingredes

If you believe never hearing of the CBS 1990 cop drama Broken Badges makes you special, you need to take a trip back to the drawing board especially if everything else about you is normal. You try to put a fan club together for a series that would barely qualify as a mini-series when we’re only talking about 10 episodes or so and you might fill up a phone booth, but leaving room for people to breathe and move inside of it.

Which is fine because unless you’re a big fan of Eileen Davidson ( from the great soap opera The Young and The Restless ) or big fans of Ernie Hudson or Miguel Ferer, Charlotte Lewis even, or CBS is not only your favorite network but has been your whole life and perhaps you’re the President of the CBS Fan Club and can name everything that great network has ever produced from the flops like Broken Badges to great shows like M*A*S*H and not just grew up with the network and it remained your favorite network as an adult as even a middle age adult, your’e probably not familiar with this show either.

I only got into Broken Badges myself when I started watching The Young and The Restless and Days of Our Lives several years ago when Eileen Davidson was working on both shows. And I was thinking I think I knew who she was before I started watching these shows, because I’ve seen her in a few other things and started looking into what she’s also done, because she’s great on both soaps and great to look at as well. ( And water is still wet )

And started thinking about a certain b-movie that she did like in the late 1980s which of course was Easy Wheels where she plays a biker goddess who is the leader off a female biker gang. And then thinking didn’t she play a tough but sexy cop on a cop show from like the late 80s or early 90s when I was in high school. That is how I got into Broken Badges myself and watched every single episode of that short lived series last weekend in preparation for this piece. Broken Badges, obviously did flopped or it wouldn’t have started in late 1990 and barley made it to 1991, but there were some good things about it and it did have a good cast.

The whole premise of Broken Badges where you have the rebellious officers and detectives who had issues with rules and following them and are always in trouble with their superiors, that are lead by a detective sergeant ( played by Miguel Ferer ) who was fired by the New Orleans PD and then broth in by the Bay City ( fictional town and PD ) because he wouldn’t follow department rules, regulations, take orders, thinks he smarter than everyone else, pretty much explains why this show barley qualifies as a series. This show would’ve been suited if it was based on a private detective agency where the detectives are all ex-cops who are talented but fired by their department for breaking the rules, that are brought in by a guy starting his own new detective agency after he was fired from his department.

But a lot of pilots fail and perhaps most do, but that doesn’t mean they’re complete failures if they have good casts that were good on those pilots and become stars later on and the failed pilots that they were part of become like jumpstarts for their careers. Easy Wheels and Broken Badges, didn’t make Eileen Davidson, Ernie Hudson, Miguel Ferer, or Charlotte Lewis stars. Hudson and Ferer, were already somewhat known from shows and movies from earlier in their careers. Hudson, with Ghostbusters and Ferer with Robocop. And Broken Badges allowed for Eileen Davidson to be on network TV and be seen which lead to other and much better roles for her.

Just to talk about Officer Bullet ( played by Eileen Davidson ) she plays this very tough and yet sexy, gorgeous, very cute even. What would be called a vice detective where she goes undercover a lot and works with dangerous people that would kill her if they discovered she was a cop. And she’s doing this work with a look of a badass biker chick very similar to Easy Wheels which came out right before Broken Badges went on the air in 1990. She’s always wearing this sexy black leather biker jacket , blue Levi’s jeans, black western boots, and there are a few scenes where she’s wearing black leather chaps over her blue Levi’s denim jeans. And she’s kicking ass in the movie a lot but always kicking bad guys ass, because of course her character is addicted to danger as the background of her character says. Eileen Davidson, is all the reason I need to watch this show and it also has a lot good humor and funny scenes in it as well.

To say that NBC’s Law & Order SVU is ahead of it’s time, would be like saying that it gets hot in Texas especially in the summer or it rains in Seattle, well at any point during the year or it snows in Minnesota in January and hopefully you get the idea by now. ( God help if you don’t ) They were talking about issues back in 1999-2000 ( the first season of SVU ) 17-18 years before the so-called Me Too movement emerged in 2017. They were dealing cases as a detective squad about women being raped and sexually abused in other ways. As well as little girls and boys who are sexually abused by their parents and other adults in their lives.

The original Law & Order which I still get to watch every week ( thanks to Sundance and TNT ) is still favorite now just show from this franchise, but one of my favorite shows ever, especially from the 1990s and 2000s, but SVU is right up there as one of the best cop dramas on TV. Perhaps the best cop drama on TV right now, but I’m guessing fans of CSI Las Vegas would probably dispute that. Maybe they can get together on TV ( fans of both shows ) and debate on live national TV. I’m sure Bravo would be happy to broadcast that and it would be ultimate and perhaps even real reality TV show.

But on a less substantive note but still important the Olivia Benson character ( played by Mariska Hargitay ) is one of the first sexy female police detectives on TV. There’ve been beautiful, sexy, younger female law enforcement officers on TV before. Angie Dickinson was the original with Police Woman from the 1970s, Heather Thomas from The Fall Guy in the 1980s, Kelly Hu from Nash Bridges from the late 1990s and perhaps there are more.

But Mariska is the first from a trend that started in the mid 2000s or so where you would have beautiful, sexy women playing tough cops who kick ass on a regular basis and even kick male ass. They’re no longer playing secretary’s, receptionists or desk sergeants that just take calls and pass on information to the real detectives and their superiors, but working cases and getting into conflict and having to physically take on strong male suspects who could severely hurt them if not kill them if the female officer is not up to the task.

Mariska, is the first female TV law enforcement officer to where tight jeans and boots on the show on a regular basis while she’s working and not at home or having a rare day off, but working her cases in beautiful black leather jacket, black denims, and boots. She was doing that back in 2007-08 if not earlier and now every cop show has at least one if not multiple female lead officers who are beautiful, sexy, physically able to take care of themselves who work their cases in boots and jeans on a regular basis. Just watch CSI Las Vegas with Elisabeth Shue, or watch Criminal Minds with the attractive detectives there, Chicago PD with Sophia Bush, NCIS LA with Daniela Ruah and I could go on.

Mariska Hargiatay ( who plays now Detective Lieutenant Olivia Benson ) is not the first beautiful, sexy, sharp, witty, great cop on TV, she’s just the best cop with those qualities and that includes Angie Dickinson who I love as well and they’re now in their 20th season with apparently no plans to ever wind the show down and plan for a final season and not just because of how popular the show is and that it’s lead to over great cop shows like Chicago PD, but also because of how great the show is. How great the cast, storylines and everything else that makes cop shows great.

I guess I got into Longmire accidentally. I’m sure I saw advertising for it before I decided to start watching it every Sunday night for the first three seasons, but didn’t think much of it at first. Until I was flipping around one late night and caught this show again accidentally which can happen when you’re up late and not sleepy and kind of bored with nothing else to do. And I ran into Longmire and saw a scene with Deputy Vic Moretti ( played by Katee Sackhoff ) going through hotel rooms looking for either a suspect for evidence. This was the first season back in 2012 and I was thinking this is a beautiful, sexy cop, in a tight western cop outfit, kicking ass. This show might be worth watching.

Longmire is a lot more than just one gorgeous, sexy cop, who wears a tight blouse, skin-tight western denim jeans, that look like they’re as tight as steel, with western boots. With a beautiful body, who also happens to be adorable with a very sweet voice and smile. Longmire really is a great cop show. But let’s just say the show was either mediocre or cheesy, but with a great lead actress who is also very sexy who is always wearing the outfit I just described and always on the move or kicking ass in that sheriff’s outfit, I would still watch it loyally, just as long as Katee Sackhoff or whoever that actress is for that show is a major player on it. Just to check her out, unless my girlfriend or wife knew why I was watching Longmire and was with me at the time. Then I would just check out my romance partner instead.

As I said before, Longmire is a great show. It’s not just Katee Sackhoff kicking ass in skin-tight jeans and boots or doing other sexy activities, like I don’t know performing at the local bar and doing something like a striptease in her sheriff’s outfit. Robert Taylor does a great job as Sheriff Longmire. Lou Diamond Phillips ( as Longmire’s informant and occasional partner ) is also great on the show. Katee is more than just sexy eye candy on the show and does a great job as well. The writing is good and at times even very funny. The plots are good and gives people the impression that even though the show takes place in the middle of nowhere American-Indian country in Wyoming where there’s more cattle than humans in the town and county, there’s actual real crime that happens there with real criminals, that you need a real credible and qualified police department to deal with it successfully.

But what got my attention initially with Longmire, was Katee Sackhoff who I never heard of before Longmire, I guess I’m just not that much of a sci-fi fan and never watched Battlestar Galactica. But again I first saw Longmire because I was flipping around one late might and ran into it and noticed Katee Sackhoff who I didn’t know of previous and never even heard the name before. The name alone got to me about her because it’s so interesting and very ethnic. Perhaps Germanic or Northern Slavic and looking at her face I could believe either. And then I watch her on that show and started researching it to see what’s it about and when the show will be on again, etc so I can watch it again.

Longmire to me represents what great shows look like that you don’t just have to go for substance and just make your show about great acting, writing, storytelling, but with very plain looking people on it who at least dress very plainly or perhaps aren’t very sexy at all physically. Similar to shows like Law & Order SVU, Chicago PD, CSI Las Vegas, and other shows like that you can have great shows that have a lot of substance in it, but that also bring men and women’s attention to it because they want to check out the beautiful sexy people on it, while they’re also looking at the great show and hearing the great writing and delivery on it. Which is why Longmire is a great show, because it has great substance and style.
