5.0 out of 5 stars STEVEN SEAGAL -- A Real Man, January 21, 2010
This review is from: Steven Seagal Lawman: Season 1 (DVD)
Tonight I watched my first two episodes of Steven Seagal Lawman and I am hooked. Let me tell you what first grabbed me: Seagal is a REAL person. He has no fluff, no (apparent) plastic surgery, no entourage, and no arrogance. He's a real man, doing a tough job with a fair amount of (well-deserved) celebrity attached to his name. Watching Seagal go through the paces with his deputies is fulfilling and enjoyable, and you feel like you can connect with him.

The second fun part of the show for me is when the suspects recognize him. In one traffic stop in tonight's episode, the two suspects are drunk. The driver says to Steven as he is questioning him, "YOu remind me of Steven Seagal." Steven keeps talking, and the the driver says to his friend, "Doesn't he look just like Steven Seagal?" And then Steven says, "Yeah, I get that a lot." Then he goes back into explaining why they shouldn't drink and drive and what they need to do next. It just adds a little fun to your regular 'COPs' Type program.

And thirdly, Seagal is working in Jefferson Parrish, New Orleans so they cover a lot of ground devastated by Katrina. Seagal and his men were there during the clean-up and have first-hand knowledge to the rebuilding of the areas affected. And they care -- they really care. No fake speeches, just real caring.

Seagal has been a cop for 20 years, and only now is he making it public. He has the skills and his notoriety can be used to bring attention to this area that needs a helping hand and your prayers.

I recommend this program whole-heartedly.

I always knew Steven Seagal could kick ass for real and not just in the movies.

Did Steven do any actual fighting in this series?

I watched a few episodes and he never really fought anyone.

No, I 've watched several, and he is just a Cop. He talks to folks and never has to actually fight. He subdues a few suspects who are drunk and disorderly, but he uses Police training, not obvious martial arts (that I've seen so far). He seems to be showing us his 'real person' side.

It's fun when the perps recognize him though!

I'm all for Steven Seagal and everything and it sounds like I should order this DVD set... but I seriously don't think he could have really been a cop for 20 years without it being noticed before now. So there has to be a degree of hype here. I'm supposed to believe Steven Seagal was *secretly* a New Orleans cop while filming all his movies of the 90s AND nobody noticed this and mentioned it to the press? I can say I never ran across this cop that looked just like Steven Seagal in New Orleans throughout the 90s (I'm from there). I dig him, but I'm also pretty sure some of this has to be meant as tongue in cheek.

The wiser thing to do would have been Google it and get the facts before posting this comment.

Too bad we don't have a President that can help with Katrina-type issues, huh? I hear he hates blac....no wait...that was the President before this one. Never mind.
