Really, this show is so bad that I couldn't finish the pilot, I couldn't get past 11th minute, when they have to search the transexual, which was an awkward situation bordering silliness and not the first one: these rookies just don't seem to have had any kind of training, I get the whole "life on the street is an entirely different beast", but Not being able to use a damned radio? asking about drawing a gun? asking to bring the gun home? absurd. No one in the cast save himself (or helself) about the acting part (terrible, especially missy peregrym). The most incredible part is that this show got the premiere with the HIGHEST ratings (a 2.0 in 18-49) of all summer broadcast shows. Even If I'm fairly sure the audience will go away pretty fast I'm stunned anyway.
I cannot stand the character Andy and she spoils it for me every week,I don't think she's a very good actress either, she couldn't even muster up a decent (pretend) cry in last night's episode,she has no morals either and is constantly messing up at work, yet gets away with it!! I am LOVING chloe and Dov and Gail's finding herself is very interesting, well Gail is my favorite character in any case,send that stupid Andy back to cadet school and she can then sleep with all the newbies.
it started as rookie cops trying to get by the day without making any errors that would cost them or their fellow officers their lives but it ended up turning into a series of love sick puppies and love triangles. kinda like grey's anatomy, it is set in the hospital but its not a Medical Show. i now respect "Days of our lives" or "The Bold and something" for showing what it really is, soaps. Rookie blue is just a wannabe cop show quickly spiraling like a hurricane into their own world of Oz. please follow the yellow brick road and get back to what Rookie Blue should really be about.
She keeps getting in trouble and she is an idiot. She also makes a stupid face every time she gets in trouble. She also failed terribly in handling the rookie Moore. Price is a better character she should be focused more in the coming episodes rather than Andy. Andy is getting boring.
I stumbled upon this show by accident: I was browsing through Hulu, looking for something interesting to watch. When I saw the name of this show, I was apprehensive. Another cop show? I nearly passed it up, but I was bored enough to sit through the pilot episode. 9 episodes later, I must say that this show did not disappoint. I was skeptical at first, having been spoiled by shows such as Law & Order and CSI, I was certain that this could not compare. I was right, however, the episodes so far have delivered exactly what I was looking for: a show interesting enough to keep me coming back for more. It is different from the usual cop shows in that it offers a more personal look into the characters lives. This allows the characters to become more real, and I admit that I have teared up once or twice along with the characters. All in all, if you are searching for the next best cop show, this is not it. If all you need is an hour of decent writing, acting, and entertainment, then this may be the show for you.
This show is watchable, but it is so much like Greys Anatomy, its unreal. I am sure there will be a lesbian affair some time soon. I like to see the sites of Toronto and think its funny they never mention the city by name, yet use all the real street names and neighbourhoods and show the CN tower in all the cityscape shots/
Well, there's a lot to talk about Rookie Blue. But I'm not sure what all there is to say about it in the end. This is a great TV show. The characters are pretty nice. They are definitely people that I enjoy watching. There is a nice comedy aspect of the show which is enjoyable. Plus, the drama is pretty good as well. I regret not seeing more of it when it was on, although I'm planning on getting the DVDs of it so I can see it all. But what I saw of it was a nice show.
I got into at first because I found out Missy Peregrym was on it,she played a character named Andy and a love interest was named Sam since I watched her on Reaper where my favorite couple was Sam & I watch it because it's actually a good show as well
At first I didn't think it was going to be great, but I was wrong. These rookies start off knowing nothing and become experts as times gooes on. I am finishing up Season 1 and this show is great. It has action, comedy, romance and drama, everything you could possibly want ! My new favorite potential couple is Sann (Sam and Andy).
I really like this show, and I'm hoping it will get renewed. Every episode seems to draw me in more and more. At first I didn't really know how long they could drag out the rookie-idea, but apparently there is a lot you can do by being a cop ;)
The characters are very diverse, but each of them likeable in some sort of way. Andy ofcourse, seems to carry the show more than the others and shows the most promise for a carreer in detective work.
I like the dynamic of the characters, especially the rookies with their training officers. Noelle is great, being tough and strict at one timme, and vulnerable at the other. Although she struggles with personal issues, when it counts, she is all about the job.
In short, this is a show you must watch, it's addictive. It's the sort of show that slowly takes you in and then you find yourself looking forward to a new episode every week just to see what happens. They have enough storylines to keep them going for at least a season or two, and I hope there will be more!
I only have one question, why don't they wear badges? This is the first police drama that I watched that the cops did not wear badges..
Your answer, Clifford:
Because they are Canadian cops. Most of the cop shows on TV are set in American cities where they wear badges on their uniforms but it's different here in Canada. The series is set in Toronto. That's the Toronto skyline you see in the opening when it says "Rookie Blue" and it often shows the CN Tower.
Even though it does not explicitly state it, the setting of the show is in Toronto. They often refer to Toronto streets and landmarks, and nearby Canadian towns like Timmins, and Scarborough. You occasionally see Canadian money as well.
I know that I dont necessarily treat this show like I would a normal season favorite, but I have become use to watching it in the summer schedule. And whilst I knew it wasn't going to air instead of the NBA finals, I did NOT know it would be close to a month before I get to see the next episode, and now I am seriously bummed. This time of year is fun for tv, Rookie Blue, masterchef, Wilfred, you don't have to follow them religiously but you can enjoy them and now i have to wait a month. I am not loving ABCs programming people right now.
