The premise in a nutshell: whereas everybody else sees Oliver as a normal police dog, his handler sees him as Odagiri Joe dressed in a German Shepherd costume and behaving like a middle-aged guy, rather than a dog.
Crazy and hilarious? Yeah, you bet! ^____^
Huge congrats to Odagiri Joe in his triple role as actor, director and screenwriter! This "Oliver na Inu, (Gosh!!) Konoyarou" is exquisitely creative (starting with the usual "This drama is a work of fiction" warning, aptly modified as "This drama is a *great* work of fiction", LOL), without *ever* feeling pretentiously artsy.
The cast did an excellent job, with honorable mentions for Odagiri himself, Ikematsu Sosuke and Aso Kumiko (great actress AND screenwriter herself, BTW).
The production value is pretty high, and the jazzy OST simply fabulous (EGO-WRAPPIN'!...'nuff said! ^___-)
So why don't I give this a "perfect 10" rating?
Well, one of the (many!) reasons that made me choose Asian dramas over Western TV series is that with dramas, 99% of the time, you get to watch a complete series made of a finite number of episodes, with a beginning, a story development and a (more or less proper) ending, rather than the usual Western approach of "well, let's leave things hanging at the end of the first season; if it's very successful you'll get many more seasons and we'll ruin everything good we had previously done by the end of the second one; if it's unpopular, you'll never see how it ends; pray that it's only averagely successful so that you'll get a second season with some kind of ending".
Unfortunately, this dorama is left unfinished as is; I have no idea of the production circumstances or whether a second season or a SP is in the making or at least planned. Fingers crossed!

..SONG OF THE POLICE DOG..

..yeah that's the manga title, where the ML's (Aoba) source of inspiration to be a police officer *slash* dog handler..
.
..a person with a bad luck on his side and his dog too - which he treats him a bad companion..
.
..a unique detective genre where the ML he this dog a man with a costume of a dog..
.
..a dog that can do smoke, use a phone, and even do break dancing..
.
..I find this interesting too, knowing Odagiri Joe and Aso Kumiko are in the line up of casts again..
.
...a drama with so much funny scenes that won't make you bored everytime you see Odagiri Joe..
.
..it's very short and a cliffhanger on the story, I do watch this drama too when I just saw that this will be having a second season..
.
..yet, I find this drama a must-watch too if you want a balance of detective and comedy genre and the story is just right to follow..
