The Ride Along

What is a patrol officer's least favorite assignment? I wanted Lopez to explain why hers was guarding a dead body because other than being boring, I don't see the issue, or maybe boring was her issue. Canvassing in the rain just made Bradford sound whiny.  Bishop's sounded the most believable. I have no doubt that driving the drunk wagon must get really nasty.  But is the VIP ride-along really so bad?  Well, if your VIP was movie dire... more

The Hawke

It's hard to watch your idols fall. And Officer Jeremy Hawke fell hard on The Rookie Season 1 Episode 6 and he could have taken Nolan down with him.  It was a little difficult to determine why Nolan was so enamored by "The Hawke." Nolan certainly isn't a testosterone junkie, so was it just that Jeremy saw potential in him at the Academy when no one else did?

Did this breakup happen because of Bishop's meddling or because the timing wasn't right for them as a couple? more

'The Rookie' Boss on Dramatizing 'How We Think Cops Should Act'

“The Rookie” creator Alexi Hawley says that his upcoming police drama will take an aspirational approach to police work. “We try to approach it from how we think cops should act in these situations,” he said at the Paley Fall TV Preview panel Saturday. Acknowledging that it is more common to “see a story about a mentally ill person that’s been shot by a cop because they don’t have the training to deal with mental health issues,” Hawley cited a scene f... more
