Were watching Knight Rider. This episode deals with illegal dumping of toxic waste; acid in barrels. How many times was this plot used?! Lol. I remember it was part of Turner & Hootch.

Armed and Dangerous had a toxic waste scene but I cant remember how much of it was really involved in the plot.

Men at Work had toxic waste in the plot.(1990)

What about a cop that doesn't listen to his boss and does things his own way? That's definitly been done.
