We have been woefully remiss is posting “Modern Lady,” the new CurrentTV web series starring Erin Gibson that replaced Sarah Haskins‘ late, great “Target: Women” show. Allow us to atone for our sins with today’s offering: Erin Gibson asking why all of TV’s lady cops are the same — with a deep and disturbing secret, a slutty outfit always at the ready, and a patented I’m-hot-but-don’t-eff-with-me look on her pretty face.
