When this hits TV expect calls to the dojo to jump. I am glad they don't let me answere the phone anymore.

Looks pretty serious to me.

I quite like Seagal's movies, but he come's across as a bit of a prat when I've seen him interviewed.

Looks entertaining if nothing else. :)

I recall reading in one of my professional journals a few years ago that Seagal Sensei is indeed a reserve peace officer in that parish and is certified as a reserve patrol officer. Shaquille O'Neill was, or perhaps still is, a reserve deputy sheriff in two different counties in two states. While I still enjoy watching "Cops" now and again so I can yell at the screen, most of these police-based reality shows leave me cold. Now that I think about it, most reality shows leave me cold. This one should be little different, but it probably will generate some interest in Aikido.

This might be a disrespectful statement but over the years Seagal has started to look more and more like Elvis

(Sorry! With all due respect to his talents and skills...)

The new catch phrase for the Elvisesque Seagal could be " Sankyo,.. Sankyo very much."
har-har

This may warrant at least one episode for me.... not sure if I would watch any others after that though

I think this will be great! Even though I've never met the man, this seems like something he would enjoy, as a bigger challenge than screenplays. There are approximately 6.02 x 10^24 TV series on these days. I only watched maybe 10 episodes of House, and many of The Office, but I might really enjoy this, especially if I see some Aikido. As was mentioned above, there may be some new Aikidoka because of this, surpassing those motivated by his untouchable guitar collection, songwriting, and movies. Thanks for making me aware of this.

Personally, I'd like to see Segal Sensei paired with Dog Bounty Hunter as a "Reality" TV Show... from a marketing standpoint that would bring in just the right kind of student...

Shame on you, George... ;) :D

To be fair, the full title of the series is:

Steven Seagal: Lawman -- Out for Donuts!

It should be really interesting to see this show. You can see that he's acting to some substantial degree for this, but he's supposed to really be a deputy. So we'll see how he would really treat a suspect--at least with he cameras on. Any little thing he did wrong could lead to lawsuits against the Parish and insurance problems too, so it seems he'll likely be a very different kind of cop than what he portrays on the screen.

Of course that one moment when he stares into the camera with that classic movie poster pose and face makes you wonder.

You should be able to provide a lot of insight into his police procedures, I would think.

So I'll be interested in seeing how he does things. Maybe it will be good for aikido, but I don't really expect that he would be getting into too much serious stuff for the above reasons.

I wish him good luck with the series and staying safe on the streets.

And the same to all.

The really awful thing is, I have a friend who is probably going to make me watch this with her (I'm not kidding, I crash on her living room couch frequently..the only way to get away from it is to pull a pillow over my head...she made me watch damnear the entire Ultimate Warrior series).

I agree with what David said: I doubt we'll be seeing any fight scenes here, aikido or otherwise.

I' m not going to be excited until I see some actual waza going on.
If they show him teaching I will be good with that, but you know these movie types....Bait you in with what he's known for, and then for the rest of the series you are looking for Aikido and there is none.

I hope Im wrong....But then on the other hand, at least it won't be another SS movie with bad vocal overdubs.

And I agree with G. Ledyard I think that would be a great combination...SS and Dog the bounty hunter....Wow backwards!
