Fox is remaking "Dragnet", the old TV show in which (in its second incarnation) no-nonsense Sergeant Joe Friday was frequently dealing with low-life, irresponsible hippie scum. In the role of Friday, they cast Ed O'Neill, best known, particularly on Fox, for his portrayal of Al Bundy, the feckless, put-upon, low-life, irresponsible husband in "Married with Children".

Accidental self-parody, or sly pomo self-commentary? We report, you decide.
