The opening credits suggest a show that might as well be called Swamp Cops, with the expected emphasis on shirtless rednecks being tackled, thrown to the ground, and handcuffed.

But based on the first two episodes airing tonight, Cajun Justice plays more like a reality-show mash-up—a surprisingly successful, engaging blend of the law enforcement, swamp-hillbilly, and paranormal reality subgenres.
The show’s central figure is Vernon Bourgeois, the sheriff of Terrebonne Parish.
It allows him to seize assets from criminals—notably shiny sportscars—and it provides that “the only person who can arrest the sheriff is the coroner.
