CC TV: Car Chases – Porsche 911 Versus Mercury Monarch In L.A. Heat

Last week we watched a chase scene from Hunter. This week, let’s watch a stranger chase from a more obscure show. L.A. Heat went for two seasons in 1999 but enjoyed far greater success in Europe – it even beat Baywatch in the ratings in Germany! It seems to be a pretty cookie-cutter buddy cop action series but it had plenty of chase scenes. Here’s an odd pairing: a Porsche 911 up against a Mercury Monarch, set against a beautiful Californian backdrop. 

Gee, the Porsche driver must have really sucked if he was struggling to keep up with a Mercury Monarch. I was utterly surprised the Monarch didn’t explode when it crashed. Come to think of it, have car chase explosions decreased over the years?
