Dragnet - sometimes too realistic
Jack Webb's object in the Dragnet radio show was to show the real-life situations of police officers. To that end, the program included lots of conversations about completely mundane subjects that were irrelevant to the case on the program. All that is well and good, and it reinforced the idea that cops are just real people, but it also made big portions of the show very uninteresting.
