What it is: Everything from musicals to time-travel stories to unscripted shows has been brought under the cop-show umbrella.

Current example: "Life on Mars," ABC's remake of a BBC show where a present-day detective (Jason O'Mara in the ABC version) is smacked by a car and wakes up in 1973.

Classic: It's stretching the definition of "classic," but Steven Bochco's "Cop Rock" is one of the oddest twists on the genre ever put on screen.

Others: "Cops," "Rescue 911," "Ashes to Ashes"
