Default does anyone else like police squad but not really like the naked gun movies?

i have to say that the police squad tv series was a fantastic spoof of the whole cop drama genre and shoul have lasted a whole lot longer than it did thats why i felt so letdown by the naked gun movies for some reason i felt that while police squad was very smartly written and you really had to keep your eyes on the show least you miss a great joke or sight gag the naked gun movies for me anyway just seemed to be dumbed down for the mass movie audience and just got very boring and tiresome after awhile in short i will watch police squad the tv series any day of the week the naked gun movies not so much does anyone else feel the same way?

Movies shoulda never been because the series went on and on ..although keeping that brilliant hilarity woulda been a certain kind of order.

This post makes no sense to me at all.

Yeah, you make an interesting point. Police Squad was better and Airplane was better than Naked Gun because of the R rating. I mean how can you have a 1980's ZAZ movie without boobies!

Movies probably wouldn't have been made if the series had been on for years, but it would have been a tall order for the series to keep being as super funny as those only six.

Both Airplane and the Naked Gun movies weren't R rated. Airplane was rated PG and the Naked Gun movies were PG-13. The boob scene was quick and unexpected in Airplane.
