The Rookie 4x02 Five Minutes

The Rookie as a cop show has been interesting on a number of levels. Like all cop shows it's steeped in copaganda so hard you really can't divorce it from the very premises it sustains. That said when you look past that there's something there. It's been amusing, disappointing and confusing trying to watch it, as a show, react. I wouldn't dare suggest it's one of the best procedurals or even one of the most popular or most expensive but it's compelling. Even when it does make everything about Detective Nolan. ONe of the biggest questions about a show with a premise that breaks with graduation is where does it go from here.

They've teased it before, they've tried and failed before but they're introducing a new rookie. This rookie like Nolan sticks out. And like Nolan, they're going to treat this rookie like a robot expecting them to get over all their issues "OR ELSE". It's weirdly performative insisting that the LAPD are trained with a soldier's discipline. I'm resisting the urge to go into how different that is from reality and why it matters that these shows insist that police both need compmassion and are super human, again. But i'm very invested in seeing how this rookie will affect the dynamic.
