Jul 28, Derek Baldwin rated it liked it. Suddenly pushed out of his job-for-life, Kenji gradually builds a new life for himself in reality TV. The character of Kenji's wife was an implausibly unpleasant cardboard cutout, and several of the other characters were poorly drawn and just seemed to be pushed around into various shapes to suit the plot, which isn't all that cop anyway.
