Throw us some examples of the mirror team.

I do see that starting to pop up in movies like "The Other Guys," where there's the cool team the movie SHOULD be about, then you cut to these comedic actors who wind up actually solving the crime in the worst possible ways.

Of course, no matter who you follow, they'll have to bend and break a few rules to get things done.  Might get them in trouble with the chief or the top brass or the mayor's office, but thankfully they've still got an off-beat tech buddy who noticed something nobody else in the world noticed.  And even if they have to turn in their badges, that just means they'll solve the case in the next thirty minutes.

Of course, if one of the main actors gets a new girlfriend (they're both always straight, I might add), she'll be in jeopardy in the climax.
