But Officer Dori is always there to help him out of the situations he lands himself in and worse he always seems to drive his chief Capt.Trunk mad with rage.

    The first 13 episodes had canned laughter in their audio tracks. Starting with episode 14, "State of Sledge", ABC gave in to Alan Spencer's request to have the laugh track omitted from the series after he was furious because he notoriously dislikes the use of it. Because of Spencer's ownership rights to the series, the DVD release has all canned laughter deleted from the first 13 episodes.
