From the insanity of the Twin Peaks inspired episode we drift seamlessly into a Police Academy inspired one, with Shaun and Gus ordered to take some police training after they interrupt a planned sting by Lassiter. It was always going to be hard to follow up such a tremendous episode as 5.12, but "We'd Like to Thank the Academy" did a great job. While last week's was most centred on the Shaun and Gus adventure, this week we got a lot of familiar SPD faces showing up and taking part, including the return of Chief Vick and lots of Buzz action. We alsp got Shaun and Gus in uniforms for most of the episode, which is sure to please the female fanbase.
One of the highlights of the episode was a glorious piece of guest casting, with the Karate Kid himself Ralph Macchio as Shaun and Gus' police academy instructor. He had a great arc for the episode, going from a sure and in control trainer, to a beaten and defeated outsider once Shaun and Gus had ruined his life, then by the end managed to finally earn the respect of his nemesis Lassiter.
